I have mentioned a number of times recently the upcoming Church Meeting on Feb.2nd. At the risk of being accused of needless repetition, can I strongly encourage all members and potential members of our church to come along on that night. By today (Jan.25th) you will have received the draft discussion document that will form the basis for our meeting. Please read it carefully and prayerfully – an awful lot of work has gone into it! On Feb.2nd we will discuss that document specifically and we will welcome any questions that relate to it. If you have questions that are peripheral to the areas that are addressed therein, and/or we don’t have time to consider them on the night, can I encourage you to write those down and give them to any of the elders.These will be then addressed at a later date. We will, of course, be looking to make time for prayer at the conclusion of that meeting – I am both encouraged and excited at the possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead over the next few years. ADVANCE NOTICES: Saturday March 7th 2015, This is the time when we go away for a day as a whole church family; this year, as usual we will be at The Woolacombe Bay Hotel. It's a time of great fellowship, good Bible teaching, lovely food, uplifting praise and worship – all in a beautiful setting! Although donations are welcome on the day, the costs of our away day largely come out of our church funds. We'll be welcoming a great Bible teacher, Chris Sinkinson to bring the message. There will still be plenty of time for relaxation, catching up with new friends, a walk on the beach and so on. Please let Richard or myself know as soon as possible as we do need to know numbers for catering. Saturday March 14th.2015. We will be welcoming the excellent Saltmine Theatre Company as they present their brilliant new drama: Amazing Grace; The Story of John Newton. Details of time, venue and ticket prices are shown elsewhere in this newsletter. This will be a great opportunity for outreach as it is a challenging presentation for Christians and nonChristians alike. We will be starting our new housegroup programme in early March where we will spend most of 2015 studying and preaching through the wonderful Gospel of John. For those who are thinking about a housegroup, this would be a perfect opportunity to join one ! Do let me know your availability – we have groups that meet from Monday to Thursday, morning, afternoon and evening – so we should be able to find a group that suits you ! Every blessing, Pastor Peter Contact : Pastor Peter Price Email : email@example.com Tel: 01271 817023 Mobile: 07969 496101 Items for February Newsletter to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sun 15th February January Week commencing 1st Feb Ephesians 5: 22-31 Week commencing 8th Feb Communion Week commencing 15th Feb Ephesians6: 1-9 Week commencing 22nd Feb Ephesians 6:10-24 Ladies Notice Prayer Meeting – Important An important message from the ladies prayer meeting which meets at Connie's on the 1st Thursday of the month 10-11am Due to various members of this group having moved away, gone to be with the Lord or become infirm, we are now very small in numbers. New ladies are much needed to join in this vital work of bringing the life of our church, community and wider world to the Lord in prayer. Please pray and consider if you could support this work which is a commitment of just one hour per month. The next meeting is Thursday February 5th It would be so good to see you there! A MESSAGE FROM TIM BISHOP: As you probably know, I take donated food from the churches in Braunton (ChristChurch, South Street and St. Brannocks) to Encompass Southwest – a local charity helping the poor and homeless in Devon. From the three churches I usually collect half a boot full each month. I started thinking : If everyone who comes to the services at these three churches were to use 50p or so of their housekeeping money each week to buy a tin of beans or a packet of rice or similar and bring it to church then I would be able to take a full car load into the Encompass store each week and we would also be able to help the food bank in Barnstaple. It would not cure the poverty in North Devon immediately but it would go a long way towards that. Now there is a thought!! If you are able to help and would like to, in ChristChurch there is a box under the table in the vestibule with a list that shows what food would be most useful to those in need. Vision for Asia – advance notices; Skittles night – please see the flyer and then put the date in your diaries . Next Ladies Lunch is Weds 4th March, 12.30 at South Street. Weds 22nd April, 12.30 at South Street, Ladies Lunch with Pastor Piyal Mondal from Kolkata where the sewing project is based.
