Pray for our church family

Please pray for  All our friends and relatives travelling to be with us for the film on Sunday afternoon, for safe journeys and a great time  Youth With A Mission, as it sends young people out into the world to serve and spread the good news

Slow Down this Christmas In the run up to Christmas, we want to encourage people to slow down and take time out to pray and reflect on God’s amazing gift to us, so we will be holding a week of prayer from 6th - 10th December. It will differ from our normal pattern- there will be no sign up sheet, and the room won’t be full of items to pray for. Instead, Wendy Samuel is preparing the space in a simple yet effective way to enable quiet prayer and personal reflection. The prayer room at the springfield centre will be open during office hours, or contact us to arrange for a key if you would like to be there at other times

Sing out Michael Hartland is organising our choir for this year’s Carol Service on the 12th December at 6.30 pm.

If you would like to give a present to those who have had to leave home and take shelter at the Women’s The next practice is Monday Refuge, please contact Alison evening, 7.00pm at St Patrick’s Utting for details Church 8668 0173 We have been assured that the heating will be turned on for us this time!
