n Remembrance Sunday, 13 November, the morning service will commence at 10.50 to enable observance of the national two minutes silence.
For November the midweek programme will follow the usual pattern except for the week beginning Monday 21 November, when most of the Bible study groups will not take place in favour of the Half Yearly Members’ Meeting on the Thursday evening.
This month’s Bring and Share lunch is on Sunday 27 November and will include an update on the ministry of the Barnabas Fund.
We express our deepest sympathy to Malcolm on the recent homecall of his beloved wife Jean - and also to David and other family members.  Malcolm is deeply grateful to God for a very, very happy marriage of nearly sixty years, and gives thanks for the church’s prayer support and the many cards and condolences received.  Malcolm would appreciate our prayers for adjustment to the considerable change in his circumstances after many years of faithful caring.
Mary has also recently experienced a great sadness through the loss of two sisters in the space of a week.  She has much appreciated the support received from the church family, expressed through prayer, cards and text messages, and gives thanks for the Lord’s comfort, grace, and strength at this difficult time.
Please continue to remember Rosie and Elaine A in their care home situations, that they may know the Lord’s peace day by day.  Those among us who face on‑going health challenges also appreciate prayer for strength and encouragement, as do others who are carers for their family members.
News from Jamie and Michaela is of encouragement that Michaela is settling happily into her work at the nursery in the Brighton area, and also a request for prayer to discern God’s purpose for their future once Jamie has completed his studies next year.
Home news/prayer items for the December newsletter are welcome - to Iris please by Thursday 24 November.

For the first week of this month the midweek programme will be in holiday mode for the schools’ half term break, reverting to the normal pattern thereafter.


The Sunday school children (and parents and teachers!) are looking forward to their annual outing this month on Saturday 24 June.  They will be visiting the Nature Trail at Coolings Green and Pleasant Centre in Knockholt.  As well as seeing the meadow and woodland wildlife, there will be a chance to see wallabies, goats, sheep, pigs, ducks, geese, ferrets and rabbits, as well as the miniature horses, but the highlight will be a display of flying owls and chance to handle and stroke them.  Please let David know if you are able to go, and remember to take the correct cash on the day.  Prices are £3 for adults, £2 for over 5s and under 5s go free.  Please meet at the church at 9.30am on the Saturday morning, with a packed lunch for eating in the Centre’s picnic area afterwards.  Please pray for good weather, good fun and good fellowship.  If it is wet, please also reserve Saturday 1 July as a back-up date.


Ladies, please note that the Pamper Evening planned for Saturday 1 July has been cancelled.

Come, Holy Spirit, sent from God the Father,

O Friend and Teacher, Counsellor and Guide;

our thoughts directing, keep us close to Jesus,

and in our hearts for evermore abide.
