Rev. Linda’s challenge to YOU

Today Linda asked “How do you show Gods love?” and gave us all a challenge.

The Challenge is to ask yourself these questions:

  • What are you going to do to this week to show God’s Love?
  • What will you do to recharge and to know God’s love?

Small acts of kindness can make a massive change to someones life. The little things we do often make the biggest difference.

It could be as small as giving a smile, or saying hello to someone in the street. Perhaps paying for someone to have a cup of tea or offer words of encouragement. Offer a helping hand, give flowers to a stranger, or offer to pray with someone.

This week, if you do something, no matter how small or insignificant you feel it is, Let Iain know and he will publish it on our website.

Either tell Iain, call him, e-mail latchfordmc@outlook.com or click “reply” below this notice on our website. Everything will be treated as anonymous, unless you your happy for your name to be shown. If you reply using facebook then your name will be public and so using the website is best.
Lets see how big a list we can collect.

Christmas Post Box

It’s time to start thinking about Christmas. The post box will be in Church the first 2 weeks in December, the cards ready for distribution on 15th December. Please make sure the full names are on the envelopes and for Church family only. In alphabetical order in an elastic band would be helpful. Thank you.

Christmas Angels

A big thank you to everyone who is busy knitting angels for distribution around the village before Christmas. We’d be grateful for as many as possible and the pattern is available on the noticeboard in the hall, on the Church website <click here> and also on the Facebook page. Additionally, please put any finished angels into the bag on the stage by Sun 8 Dec at the latest, as labels need to be attached prior to distribution. Many thanks from the Mission Team.

Church Prayer – St Philip’s

Father God, we give thanks for your Spirit of Mission which allows us to step out in faith knowing that you are leading us. We pray for the work on our garden which allows us to be more visible in our community and gives us a space to invite the community in and to become involved in planting and caring for our environment. Give us the opportunity to speak and share our faith and to invite the community into our building and into worship. We pray for Transform North West who are using our school hall that they may reach out to the lost generations and help them to know your love for them. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Minister: Revd. David Easton
