Attachments – 2 (FOTP Poster, Big Breakfast)

Good afternoon everyone,

Now is the time to consider ordering Bible Reading Notes for 2019. If you are interested in ordering notes for the first time, wish to change your order or just view some different notes, please contact Jutta (Holy Trinity) before the end of October in order that the order may be submitted to the supplier at the beginning of November. No contact is necessary if you wish to continue with your existing order.

This Sunday we continue to look at people in the Bible who saw, or heard, God and how they reacted to the call. This time we look at the Book Of Daniel and focus on ‘When God wants you to trust’.

Our ‘vision‘ opportunities continue next week:

Saturday morning 20th October 8.00 Morning Prayers at the Austins if you wish, then to the Vicarage where a light breakfast will be provided from 9.00 a.m. and we will work from 9.30- 11.15

Tuesday evening 23rd October 7.30 for 7.45 p.m.

Thursday evening 25th October 5.00 p.m (for children and a parent – supper included)

I will be asking groups to pray together, study the Bible and ask ourselves to prioritise certain things we might do over the next few years.

Pat, from Friends of Trendlewood Park, says:

‘Tuesday 30th October at the Tithe Barn is the third annual presentation of the wildlife and work carried out in Trendlewood Park. It has been an eventful year on the park, with heavy late snow, followed by extensive flooding of the wetland area, and then drought. Several trees fell during storms and a fire damaged one of the meadows. A start has been made on the management of the 700 metre long Kenn Hedge, which grows along the eastern boundary of the park. In 2018, the park was awarded the Green Flag for the 7th consecutive year, indicating that it is a well managed and accessible green open space.

‘Expert local photographer, Andrew Town, has again taken photos throughout the year, which illustrate the wealth of wildlife to be found in the park.

‘We would love you to come to find out for yourselves just what a fabulous facility we have for all to enjoy. £4.00 including refreshments. A poster is attached.’Poster 30.10.18.docx

The Hallelujah party, briefly mentioned as an alternative Halloween event, is not now taking place.

Dave B says:

‘The Big Breakfast for men is back with the new management at The Old Farmhouse. We are meeting on Saturday November 3rd at 8.00am and this time our guest speakers are Mark Walters and Chris Boddy from Hope for Life who will be getting us to think about some of the ethical issues regarding charity work. We still have the wonderful Full English Breakfast, with unlimited teas and coffees, great company and still for the amazing price of £6. Hope you can make it. If you are intending to attend could you let Dave Boddy know so that he can inform the Old Farmhouse of catering numbers. Flier attached.The Big Breakfast November 18.doc

We are delighted to be sharing with the school in a family fireworks event on Friday November 9th. Click on the link to buy tickets through the GVSA and to support their work. I will have some tickets at church on Sunday. Do offer to help with setting up, stewarding and tidying up if you can.

On this subject, Sarah B says:

‘It is very exciting to be able to have a Crepe Stall at the schools’ new venture of a firework evening, however I can’t do it alone (and Mike is away).

Help needed please for:

‘Set-up/packing away – includes putting up a gazebo, tables.

Making crepes – I can give you full training.

Taking money – This could be a sitting down job if you can’t stand for a long time.

Ensuring batter, sugar, washing-up water etc is kept topped up and ready for use.

‘Set-up is from 3.45 pm with the event running from 5 – 6.45pm.

The school have already sold 660 tickets and will sell a maximum of 900.

All the profit from the crepes will go directly to the school association.

Please contact me if you are interested in helping.’
