Lynn, Gill & Rosemarie: September 2018
This is a diary alert for our Christmas Tree Festival on Friday to Sunday, December 7th, 8th and 9th. Following the great success of the festival last year we are planning for an even bigger and better one for 2018. We are inviting all user groups in our community centre as well as our church groups to take part, as so many did last year. For this year we have a theme, Christmas Carols or Songs, so you have a lot to choose from!
We will setting up between 5 & 7pm on the Friday, this year with mulled punch and mince pies to make the event even more festive! On Saturday, between 10 & 5, as well as the display of trees we will have a refreshments stand, our 'Cards for Good Causes' shop will be open with its usual display of charity Christmas Cards and there will be a craft stall selling hand crafted gifts.
The festival is a really great way to tell people about the organisations that use our premises. They are all invited to get in touch with one of us by the close of September with their contact details so we can share our finalised plans with them.

The song invites us to 'Count our Blessings', and this is something that we need to articulate to help each other sense the way that God is moving. Active in the spectacular, but more often in the mundanities of everyday life. So, a thought — when did you last think about the story of your faith journey? Is it time to update our Christian CV, as there is the danger that the new...
