Thank you for all the Mission Boxes you brought to Church recently. They are now being counted.
As you probably know already we are having a “Mission Weekend” on the 10th and 11th February. On the Saturday there will be our Coffee Morning from 10.30am. and any donations will be sent to BMS. If anyone can bake a cake or bring in something to sell please bring it along. We’d be most grateful. Also please try to bring along a friend.
On Sunday 11th it is “Home Mission Sunday”. Envelopes will be available to donate towards the work of Home Mission in the UK to support and help setting up small Church projects.
The Rev. Ruth Moriarty has invited a friend and fellow Pastor to share in leading the service with her. He is from Ruth’s Woolwich Church.
After the service we’ll be having a lunch in the Parlour. It is a community event. It’s been advertised as a free lunch but we will still put out the donation box towards the cost.
Carol Singing for Christian Aid at Arnos Grove Tube Station happened on Monday 18th December.
They were accompanied by a young man on the cello and a young violinist. They had about 12 singers including a number from Friern Barnet's St. John's congregation.
Robert Wright will let me know how much they collected after Christmas.
The annual Christian Aid Quiz and Supper will be on Saturday 27th January at 7pm. I will be receiving more details soon and look out for the poster. Most churches in Churches Together organise a table of 8 people from their church. Please let me know if you are interested.
Happy New Year.
