THE MISSION GROUP
Thank you to all who were able to come to our coffee morning on Saturday 11th November. We were able to send a cheque to the Rohingya Crisis Appeal for the refugees coming out of Myanmar. With your support we collected £142.60. The majority was from Saturday's efforts and the rest of the delicious cakes made for us to sell were sold on Sunday morning; only a few crumbs left! What an amazing amount and all due to your wonderful donations and generosity.
Thank you Doreen for making marmalade to sell and to Sara for helping all of the Mission Group. Ruth made wonderful little cakes in place of Joyce who was naturally unable to be there. We wish her a full recovery.
The next event for us is the food parcel appeal envelopes going out on the 3rd December. As usual we will be helping the Family Resource Centre for Barnet. They will deliver the food we buy, mostly basic items plus some luxury items, for needy families in our area for Christmas. The envelopes will be available until Sunday 17th December when we will collect all the envelopes ready to go shopping on Monday 18th December.
We will also have a Toy service on 17th December so please could someone help deliver these while we do the food shopping? As you know the Toy service date has changed from the 10th December to the 17th December.
The toys will be for the Family Resource Centre too. The staff look after children too and who are most appreciative of our gifts.
On December 12th the carol singing collection at Arnos Grove is on a Tuesday. The money raised will go to BMS (Baptist Missionary Society) World Wide Aid as usual. See time elsewhere.
Please note we are having a Mission Meeting on Sunday 7th January after the service. Mission Boxes, both BMS and CWM will be collected in for counting and banking on Sunday 14th January. If anyone wants a box please let me know.
Happy Christmas everyone and Happy New Year. May you all be blessed.
We will be collecting for Christian Aid on Monday 18th December from 5.30pm to 7pm. Please try to join us. Robert Wright is organizing it and asks people to bring photo ID with them.
Look for posters about other Christian Aid Carol Concerts in London.
The Christian Aid Quiz is on Saturday 27th January at St. John's Friern Barnet. More details in the January Newsletter. They will be giving to Christian Aid as always.
This coming year 2018, Christian Aid Week will be from Sunday 13th May to Saturday 19th May. Wishing you all a Blessed Christmas.
