As the days pass following Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the scale of destruction and the level of suffering are becoming clear. Millions are affected. Tearfund’s church partners are helping survivors. Please pray for those affected and for their partner staff as they respond. If you can, please give to the Philippines Typhoon Appeal through the Moderator’s Appeal. You can use the white Appeal envelopes. We received £500 last week and you can give this week, or get envelopes. Thank you so much!! Some really helpful books to read if you have honest questions about the resurrection or to give away to friends who might ask you about the truth and relevance of Jesus for our lives today ..‘Dead or Alive’ by Daniel Clark (IVP) – This is such a great book to read or give away. It shows the truth and the relevance of the resurrection and is very readable. ‘The Case for Christ or the Case for Christmas’ by Lee Strobel. Lee was an editor in the Chicago Tribune and was very sceptical about the Jesus . Remember the Traders Night Friday 6th December in Donaghadee when 3000+ people will be in town… We want to be there in the middle of it…showing and sharing JESUS... the Reason for the Season… as we give out Christmas bags, serve free tea and coffee, chat with people, play music and more..Some are knitting!! All of us can pray for that night.

Shore Street Presbyterian Church family ‘Welcome’… We so love having you here. We long for GOD to speak and work quietly but quite powerfully in your life to-day…That would be amazing!!

Christmas Hampers: Coming alongside people to encourage and to bless … We have received a great response and are grateful to all those who have contributed. This is the last week we will be taking donations and would so appreciate your continued support. We hope to distribute these to people in the Donaghadee area and to share some with Joanna who works with Prison Fellowship. There is a donation box on the trolley for any who would prefer to give money and we will buy the food to put into the hampers. Thank you so much for being part of this practical ministry of mercy and care. That reflects the heart of Father God …. Doesn’t it??


Prayer is vital for the life of our church and we would love you to join any of our prayer ministries, whether it be praying over Donaghadee, praying over imPrint or praying with our Prayer & Bible Study Group. For all these groups you can come and go as you wish. If you have any prayer requests you can email them to or leave them in the new Prayer Request box at the front door. (Table beside window) These will be passed to the prayer team on a weekly basis. Adult Ministry Tuesday 26th Prayer and Bible Study …. Mission Night!!
