Shoe Box Service & Remembrance Sunday

Layout 1Sunday 12th November

Once again our church is supporting the Shoe Box Appeal which Blythswood Care have been running for many years.

We know that many of you in our community would like to get involved so we are having a Shoe Box Service where you can bring either your own completed shoebox or items that can be used to make a shoebox up.  The service will start as usual at 10:45am and will be followed by refreshments.

For full information about the appeal please visit Blythswood Care Shoe Box Appeal.  On their website you are also able to download or view a checklist of suggested items, or alternatively you can pick up a leaflet from our church.  (All items must be new and no food is permitted apart from sweets with a best before date no earlier than March 2018.)

It’s not difficult to choose gifts for people who have so little.  Things we take for granted can often be luxuries for people living in desperate poverty.  By filling a shoebox with simple gifts you can give hope to someone in need this Christmas. Blythswood Care

Sunday 12th November is also Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day “to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts”.  It is held on the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November, Armistice Day, the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11 am in 1918.

Family Bonfire Party

1Friday 3rd November 7 – 9 pm

Join us for our annual Family Bonfire Party in Hatfield.

Our annual Family Bonfire Party is one of many events we host throughout the year where the families of the children who attend our various youth activities can get together.

Along with the fireworks there is always plenty of hot food & drinks and the chance for new acquaintances to be made and old ones renewed.  During the evening there will be an evangelistic talk.

So why not wrap up warm and join us for a fun night.  It’s free for all the family although children must be accompanied by an adult.  

If you are interesting in joining us and would like further information please contact Andy on 07971 244864

(Church members – if you are able to provide a sweet tray bake or buns for this event please see the notice at the back of the church.)

Morning Communion

The Lords Table2

From October we will be making a slight change as to when we have our Communion / Lord’s Table celebration.   (Please see FAQ if you are unsure what this entails).

In general we will continue to hold Communion at the end of our Sunday evening service except on the third Sunday of each month when it will follow the morning service instead.

There may be rare occasions when we need to make changes to this so please check the events calendar each month where we will keep you up to date.

Important Update

We are pleased to announce that the WAY Club started back on Thursday 21st September.

The Thursday night WAY Club will not be starting up on the 7th September as previously announced.  At present we do not have a re-start date but we will update on this as soon as we can.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
