for use in an emergency will be held on Wednesday 8th October 7pm – 9pm. This is for first aiders and
all who may be called upon to operate this equipment in an emergency. You are welcome to come along even if
you are not likely to use it but at least would know how it works and where it is stored.
Church Away Day Saturday 25th October 2014 This year’s church away day will once again be held
at Elbow Lane Methodist Church in Formby. We are going to be thinking about one of the core
values that we set out in our mission statement – nurture. How do we grow in our faith and how do we help
others to grow in their faith? This is a whole church event, open to everyone and all ages. Bring your packed
lunch and enjoy a day of fellowship together as we encourage one another in our faith journeys. If you need a
lift please let one of the stewards know.
Extended Holy Communion If you know of any friends who are not able to attend worship and would like to
receive Holy Communion in their own homes, please pass their details on to Rev. Jan Fraser or Mrs Joanna Simpson.
Fair Trade We are a Fair Trade Church and use only fairly traded tea & coffee. If anyone has a preference
as to which tea or coffee is used, please speak to Sheila Jones, Lin Mayor or Avril Merone.
Paperback books wanted to sell on the stall in the lounge and at Thought for the Day in aid of church
funds. If you have any, they will be very welcome.
Keyholders If you no longer require your keys for the church, could you please return them to me. The keys for the
church are expensive to replace so any surplus ones will cut down any unnecessary expense. Thank you. Bob Owen.
Southport Food Bank Please continue to support the Southport food bank by placing items as listed in the box in the church porch.
Foods urgently needed: Tinned fruit; Steamed puddings; tinned meat; long life milk; fruit juices; sugar.
Refreshment List A new list for the coming three months is on the hatch door (kitchen/lounge). Please add your name to
the list for the dates you are able to help. More help is needed and if those who are able could do two Sundays in the 3 month period,
s that would relieve those who have to regularly step in to cover dates not covered. Please try to help so that this time of fellowship
after services can continue.
