I know things are very unsettling at the moment. I hope that you are OK. We must continue to pray and do all we can to help others.
We are giving all those who produce our weekly on-line services, a well-earned rest this week. Please don't worry though, we will return next week with a special service for Bible Sunday.
Here is a link to a short video which includes our notices for this week:
In normal times, when we go on holiday, we might visit a local church. So why not visit another church's on-line service this week?
Here are some suggestions:
St Andrews and St Bedes https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrMxgACZ4uXxWyHNodqiVbQne

Our usual pew sheet is attached and a service sheet if you would like to 'do your own' service at home.
In church on Sunday there will be 2 services led by Ilona Hepburn, ALM. There is one at 9.30 am and one at 10.30 am specially for families.
Thank you to all those who supported our Harvest Food Collection. Urban Outreach sends the following message. A huge thank you to everyone who makes the Food Hub happen. We are saddened by the number of people in need and who continue to be impacted by the current circumstances. We are so grateful to all who contribute to make sure that people do not go hungry. In September we saw 3,400 people fed. THANK YOU
We are having our usual Saturday morning collection on Saturday 17th October (10-11 am at church) if you would like to continue to support Urban Outreach. In the Team we will also be getting involved with the Christmas Dinner on Jesus project. Listen out for more details.
Please get in touch if I can help in any way.
Keep praying. Keep safe. Keep well.
