for his name alone is exalted;
his glory is above earth and heaven."

Concert On Saturday 27th September we will present the second John Denver concert performed by Chris Bannister in the church hall. This is also our farewell concert so we hope many of you will come along to support it. Thank you to all who have come to our previous concerts and special thanks to the wonderful team of helpers. We are really hoping this last concert will be well attended so we will be able to give the church a good donation to help with the on-going work in the hall.For tickets please see Barbara Eyes tel. 228523. Many thanks. Barbara & Peter.

Harvest at Crossens You are warmly invited to the evening Harvest Service at Crossens on Sunday 28th September at 6-30pm. The preacher is Rev. Peter Hughes. Refreshments follow the service.

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.
