- We remember those of our fellowship who are unable to remember us, and we pray for their well-being.
- There are several people who are unable to worship with us because of illness or family responsibilities. A phone call or visit would let them know they are not forgotten!

This is part of a thank you letter we have received from the URC Finance Committee.
‘Thank you’ to each and every one of you for all that you do for the Church and, especially, for your help in raising over £19 million in 2018 for the URC Ministry and Mission Fund. For Christians, any giving of ours is in response to the amazing generosity of God in pouring out his love through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and through his risen life in the world and the church today, through the Holy Spirit. Nevertheless, it is important to say ‘thank you’.
The complete letter is on the notice board.

Thought for the Week
It takes a range of plants to create a masterpiece in the garden,
different sizes, different colours all contributing to the whole.
This is true of the church.
