Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child

Through Operation Christmas Child, show God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and partner with local churches worldwide to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Each child receives a shoebox full of goodies as an unconditional gift of love, based on need, regardless of their background or religion.

If you would like to join with us in this project, you could fill a shoebox and leave this, or leave goodies that can be put into a box in the crate in the Welcome Area at church. We have left some leaflets on The Hub, which explains in detail suggestions of suitable items. We also have some spare if you would like one.

The final date for donating items is Sunday 11th November.

If you would like to find out more please speak to Amanda or JP Dervley.

Church Freezer

If you leave anything in the church freezer, please label it with who owns it and when it might be used. It is getting very full of unknown foods again, which is causing problems for others. All unlabelled food will be used or disposed of at the end of November. Thank you.



Weyfinders Christmas Lunch will be at the Nothe Fort on Tuesday 4th December at 12 noon. Please sign up if you can join them. The list will be on the WBC notice board in the corridor.


Open Doors YOUTH Blackout

Thank you so much to everyone who sponsored us for the above event. We successfully completed our 24-hour digital fast to raise money for Christians in desperate need of food, shelter and medicines in Syria. We used our time away from the internet and other digital media to learn more about the lives of believers in parts of the world where it is extremely difficult and dangerous to hold on to the Christian faith. We also had a lot of fun!

If you sponsored us, please hand your cash or cheques (made payable to ‘pen Doors’ to Elaine Pullen on a Sunday morning. Alternatively, you can put them in an envelope and leave them c/o the church office and Sue will pass them on to Elaine.

Thank you so much for your support.


Request from Sharon Chapman

Sharon is returning to England to live just before Christmas and is looking for temporary accommodation for three cats. They do not all have to stay together, so could be 1, 2 or 3. Two of them would be quite happy in a spare room all the time. If you would like a furry friend for a few weeks or know anyone who could help, please see the Hardisty’s for more information. Thank you.


Help Required

Then you could be just the sort of cool dude or dudess we need to help us storm through the current desperate shortage of AV operators for Sunday morning worship. So (please) pop up to the balcony now (if not sooner) and speak to Murray, Jamie or Rob. Awesome! Thank you and God bless, Murray.

Church Flowers

Many thanks to all who provide the flowers for the church week by week. Please remember that YOU are responsible for giving them out at the end of the service.
