Giving Money – it is lovely that we are a very generous church.  Please could we ask that people don’t give money to people who have come to church for help due to hardship.  We do help these people regularly, but giving money often puts other temptations in their way so it isn’t always the best thing.  If you’re unsure please speak to Clare (and give her the money if need be!!)

Recipes and Stories

We have some funding for community cohesion around a possible GHM recipe book,  The idea would be to tell a story that relates to a recipe – maybe a family favourite, or something that matches with a special memory.  We hope that this can bring community together to talk, share and cook.  Also it would result in our very own recipe book.  Can you think if you’d like to contribute or if it is something you can help us with.  Ask Michelle for more details or Contact us.

Sunday 9th October 2022 – Breakfast Church and Prayer and Praise – I am the way the truth and the life

This Sunday we have Breakfast Church – St Paul’s Church – 10.30am.  Please bring someone along if you haven’t before.  This is our service that is deliberately aimed at people who are not used to Church.  If Breakfast Church isn’t really your cup of tea (and croissant!) then perhaps Prayer and Praise at 7pm – St Philip’s Church might be something to try.  We follow the same theme, but there is more singing and a more intimate feel.
