The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 31:8
Hope you have had a good week.
Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal
We launched our shoebox appeal last Sunday. If you need a box, leaflet or have any questions please speak to Pam Soames. We will dedicate the boxes as part of our Remembrance Sunday Service on 13th November.
Service of Remembrance
Many of us have lost loved ones over the years, some more recently. Whilst we were in the Covid lockdown periods, many were unable to attend the funeral services for those who they loved and knew well. We would like to invite everyone who might want to come and spend time remembering a loved one who is no longer with us, to a service on 6th November at 3pm. This will be a short, quiet and reflective service where we will have the opportunity to light a candle in memory of our loved ones. Following the service we will have tea and cake and share a short time of fellowship together before returning home. If you have any questions about this or would like more information please do speak to me.
CAP Sunday Service
This evening, Sunday 16th October 2022, CAP are holding a service at The3 Church, Colchester, Ypres Road, Colchester CO2 7FD. They will be sharing a client’s story, and providing updates on what they are doing in respect of the cost of living crisis.
The new church directory is available this weekend. The names in the directory are all those who had given their consent to be included as at the 1st September 2022. If you have joined the church since then, please do speak to me for a GDPR consent form to be included in future directories and prayer guides. The directories are in the foyer and are named, one for each household. Please do take yours and anyone else’s you can deliver to.
Matt is looking for additional help with the sound desk. If you would like to explore this please do get in contact with him (details are on the publicity overleaf).
