DATES

Sunday (28/11)
Busy Sunday. We meet in the school at 10.15 a.m. for a service led by myself. I will also preach the second of our two sermons on commitment. This week we will look at our commitment of time and talents.

Please bring your financial commitment response (attached to the last two weekly e-mails) which we will offer as part of our worship.

We will share communion together (in one kind only).

We will mark the end of Simon’s time as Church Warden with a gift

Your presence will continue to be recorded for track and trace purposes, the details retained for 21 days and then destroyed. If you wish to move to the back of the hall when people are singing we understand. The hall is well ventilated at all times. Refreshments are served after the service.

We are encouraged to continue to wear masks when circulating or mingling indoors, and during singing.

NEWS

Housekeeping at the School
We are aware that it is hard to get a decent airflow and keep the hall warm. We will try something different this week but please bear in mind it may still be chilly. Why not bring a rug?

The Church Council prompted us to start doing birthdays again as part of our worship. But our birthday song will not be re-appearing.


Service Archives
Services from recent weeks are available on YouTube.


Men’s Breakfast
There will be no Trendlewood men’s breakfast on December 4th as many are away.

Home Groups
Would you like to be in one of our home groups? Please make sure Michelle has you on her list as this ministry has been slowed by Covid and we would now like to get on with it. We have the names of five people who wish to join a group and so will be starting a completely new one.

JOBS

  • Children’s work co-ordinator and week-by-week helpers

  • We need more help with the laptop. Could you learn to do this?

  • One more volunteer for the sound-desk and tech work would be appreciated
