Shoe boxes and leaflets are available in the church lounge and filled shoe boxes will be dedicated on 16th November. Items to fill the show boxes can be left in the vestry beforehand and donations of money towards the transportation of the boxes can be made by placing in an envelope, marked 'Shoebox Appeal' and placed on the collection plate. Once again, we look forward to this church being able to make a generous contribution to this great appeal.

Envelopes for 'All we can' – the new name for the Methodist Relief and Development Fund (MRDF) will be in the pews. your contributions will be gratefully received. Please place your envelope on the collection plate for the next two weeks. Thank you.

Volunteers for Painting the Hall Needed for the one day only on Friday 24th October from 9-00am to help complete as much of the painting as possible before contractors come in the following week to do the high painting. Please come along whether you have been before or not. You 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.

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.

Please try to help so that this time of fellowship after services can continue.
