Here are some updates for you as we descend rapidly towards the end of the year!

SUNDAY 6th OCTOBER at 10.30  –  Balnarring 

Blessing of the Animals and Celebration of St Francis.    
You are welcome to bring your pets (or perhaps a picture of them if they are a bit naughty like my labrador) to be blessed.

If you have coloured in the creation pictures could you please drop them in to the church by THURSDAY afternoon so I can create the tree. Any help with that on Thursday afternoon would be appreciated!

BAND AND PIZZA NIGHTS – Cancelled THIS FRIDAY – 4th

 I have had a chance to think about the band and these nights and feel it is just one thing too many at the moment. I am aware how busy you all are!  Instead I will be happy to do some ukelele and glockenspiel practice in keyboard lesson time for those who have lessons with me. I still hope we can do some playing together.

Please let me know if you have any other ideas of how we might make music  together. 

SUNDAY 17th NOVEMBER –  9 a.m.   “THE GREAT COMMANDMENT”

 SUNDAY 15th DECEMBER

“SUNDAYS @ 9”

 “Sundays @ 9” is our children’s and family ministry programme.

Would you like your children to learn something of the Christian story in a way that enables the whole family
to continue the conversation at home? “Sundays @ 9” is a
chance to hear some of the wonderful Christian stories
and to take time to question and to wonder…

Join us on either the 1st or 3rd Sunday of the month
at 9 a.m. for a story, some music and craft activities
and the chance for some adult conversation over breakfast.

SUNDAYS @ 9” FAMILY PROGRAMME

           JUNE – DECEMBER    2019.

  Sunday  20th October  –    The Ten Commandments

 Thousands of years ago God gave the Jewish people 10 rules by which to live.  I wonder if they are still important for all of us today?

Sunday 17th November  –  The Great Commandment

 Jesus grew knowing how important the ten commandments were. He gave his disciples and us today a shortened version – easy to remember but still difficult to do.  I wonder what the world would be like if we really lived by this commandment?

Sunday 15th December –  “The Journey to Bethlehem”

 As we wait for Christmas we hear the story of Mary and Joseph. I wonder if they really had any idea of what was ahead.
