Christian Union Mission this Week - 13th to 17th March

During the week, the CU are putting on two lunches and an evening gathering every day. Tea and coffee will be served throughout the morning and afternoon.

The week is themed around "Identity", with each day having a different sub-theme of something students might identify with. These are:

  • success
  • activism
  • love
  • self-image
  • partying

Please remember the CU in prayer this week. Please pray:

  • That promotion would be successful and the word would get out so that people come along to the events.
  • That the CU can navigate the plethora of regulations needed to be met in order to have meetings, serve food etc. without breaking the rules.
  • That the CU students would be able to give time and energy to the mission at a very busy time of year.
  • And that God would see fit to bless our efforts and call people to himself through this mission.

Church Matters

Church Meeting. There will be a church meeting on Sunday 2 April following the morning service and after consumption of packed lunches.

Easter Cracked. Our presentations of the Easter story to year 5 and year 6 schoolchildren from local schools will be happening during the week of 3 to 7 April 2017, especially Mon, Tues a Wed that week. We already have four schools booked in. This is more complex than the Nativity presentations to younger children and requires a bigger team. All sorts of help are needed and, in particular, those gifted in drama for both male and female roles are sought. If you are free and would like to take part, then please contact Wayne Adams or the church office. Thank you.

Fairtrade fortnight 27 Feb to 12Mar - Don't Feed Exploitation

We are now at the end of Fairtrade Fortnight. This is held annually to remind people that many farmers who produce our basic foods do not get a Fair wage for the work that they do. In fact for many people their conditions are similar to slave labour. By buying food with the Fairtrade label you are ensuring that people are being paid fairly and that their working conditions are monitored. Why not decide to switch to Fairtrade and make a difference. We can make a difference to the poor in the world by the way we shop.
