VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS FAYRE – SUNDAY 10 DECEMBER 2pm

YOUTH WORKER

This is being taken forward primarily by Jamie at the moment who is researching other posts in the area. The PCC will make the final decision about timings but the hope is that we can look to advertise in the New Year. This will most probably be a fulltime position. Please remember this process in your prayers.

ONE MILLION VOICES OF HOPE

Open Doors has launched a global seven year campaign to mobilise Christians to bring hope to the Middle East. Syria and Iraq are in crisis.  Christians face the added threat of being targeted by Islamic extremists, who are determined to eradicate the church from the Middle East. In December 2017 Open Doors will present this petition to the Secretary General of the United Nations. It will also be presented to the UK Government.

Please add your voice by signing the petition, which will be at the back of Church until November.
