Tim Writes  We're got a great team of volunteers for Sunday School but it would be good if there was one person who had a vision and passion for the ministry. Pray that God will raise such a person up. MISSIONS GIVING UPDATE An update on how we give to missions. I forgot one method which are the blue Anglican Missions boxes at the back of some of the churches. You can take these home, fill them up with loose change over several months and then bring them in and put them in the plate. If you write your envelope number on the white space on the back it will be recorded with your regular giving for the year and will be included in your end of year tax receipt. AUDIO SERMONS UPDATED We're back to putting the sermons online again as audio recordings. You can browse to the parish website, click on sermons, click on the one you want and away you go.

"God and War in the Old Testament" is now available. The website url is Note that there is no "www" before the url so don't type it as it is not needed. NEW LOCK - SEE TIM We have installed a new combination lock with a secret code to get into the Cobden Church. If you a person like one of our church cleaners who needs to know the code then please ring Tim who will give it to you. One helpful suggestion for remembering the code was to input it into your cell phone as a contact. e.g. Name=Church Code, Phone No.= xxxx (code). If you are given the code please never ever divulge it for obvious security reasons but also to protect our ability to claim insurance. STAMPS FOR MISSIONS Please keeps stamps off envelopes. Tear around the stamp leaving a 1cm gap and drop off at the back of each church when you have a good amount. Lawn Mowing Roster 24th May Henk Stengs

COMMUNITY DINNER The community dinner hosted by the Baptist church starts this Tuesday. It is for any person in the community who would like to sit down and share a meal with others. Gold coin donation is appreciated but not expected.

finishes and then if no-one comes will join the rest of us. You can also approach team members and ask for specific prayer. A note for the people praying. Please position yourself by the serverey. Don't worry about seeing the songs. Just pray for the congregation.

PRAYER FOR HEALING Just a reminder for Cobden folk. There is always Ministry prayer for any need offered during the sung worship. Just move forward to the prayer team and they will pray with you. However the team is also available for prayer out the back immediately after the service. They will wait 5-10min after the service
