From the Notices: 17th November 2019

 We continue to mourn the death of Pam Burn. Her funeral service will be held at Chapel Field Road this Friday, 22 November, at 2.00 pm. We hold her family and friends in our thoughts and prayers. Please note that the Church car park will not be available from 1.00 – 3.30 pm.

 A Service of Contemporary Praise will be held at Hethersett Methodist Church this evening at 6.30 pm, when the theme will be ‘Remembering’. The preacher will be Revd Steve Cullis.

 Items for the December edition of Contact, our Church magazine, should be with Pauline Mann today.

 Our Christmas Craft Fayre will be held this Saturday, 23 November, from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm in the Church Centre foyer, including coffee and snacks. We hope it will attract Saturday shoppers and passers-by. Further details are in Contact, page 8. Offers of cakes or mince pies will be very welcome; contact Zing Eagling at 07981 372746 or if you can help.

 Also this Saturday, 23 November, at 7.30 pm there will be an Ecumenical Prayer Meeting at St Stephen’s Church, remembering the Police Service and praying for a breakthrough in the battle against drug crimes and the burden of addictions.

 Please order your Daily Bible Reading Booklets for next year from Margaret Snelling by next Sunday, 24 November, at the latest.

 We are grateful to have had an offer to cook lunch on Christmas Day for those guests who wish to come to Chapel Field Road; they may also want to attend the service beforehand too. We need to ensure that we have enough drivers to bring them, and also take them home again later in the day. Please consider whether you could help either on the morning of Christmas Day or in the evening, at around 5.00 pm. Stephen Osborn will be glad to hear from you, either in person or on 01603 426189.

 Thanks to everyone who helped the residents of Cromwell House to raise the wonderful total of £337.20 for their Amenity Fund.

 We’re invited to join with other churches in praying this week for St Peter Mancroft, and for City Hall and our Councillors.

A prayer quoted by Lord Runcie, which is pinned above the desk of a holy nun, a friend of his:

“God bless this mess “
