Revd. Linda’s EXTENDED challenge to YOU for Advent

Last week 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, Linda asks that we continue with this challenge throughout the advent period and she also extended the challenge asking us to buy an anonymous gift “For a stranger with God’s love”.  

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.

Church Prayer – Trinity

Please pray for the groups who use Trinity and the outreach work done there. As we celebrate Christ’s birth, let us remember the families whose Christmas is made a happier tie because of the hampers they receive from trinity Kings Cross and give thanks to all the people who support the project. Remember also, the refugees, asylum seekers and trafficked people who are far away from home and fine some companionship at Trinity Safe Space. Amen.
Minister: Revd. Jenny MacGregor

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.
