SERMON SERIES We have begun a 7 week series on the I am sayings of Jesus which tell us about who Jesus is and also how we should respond to Him. All the sermons will be available Here on the website if you miss them or wish to read them for yourselves.

ALPHA - please continue to pray for Alpha - there are now 16 people attending plus helpers. It is a great encouragement! We still need some people to supply a light lunch, people will be reimbursed for costs. Please sign the list in church or see Anne if you are able to help. You could always do this together with a friend as it is a lot of people to cater for.

LENT 2019 - Lent begins on Ash Wednesday 6th March with a Communion Service with ashing at St Mary's at 7pm. The Lent course this year will be from the Bible Society. It explores the theme of loneliness – now a national epidemic – Krish Kandiah guides us through six sayings of Jesus on the cross, and how these help us to discover a passion for hospitality. If you don't belong to a homegroup but would like to join one for Lent please see Anne as some homgroups have spaces.

WE WELCOME to the parish the new owners of Manor Stores. Please do go in and say hello and make them feel welcome and say that you belong to the church.

EASTER HOLIDAY CLUB - We are running an Easter Holiday Club for three days from Tuesday 16th - Thursday 18th April. For three hours each day in the morning. We are in the planning stage at the moment so more information to come, but please SAVE THE DATE! This is a fantastic opportunity to share the amazing story of Easter with local children - from the excitement of Palm Sunday to the despair of the cross to the joy of Easter Sunday. We will need team to help each day, set up, prayer for the event and supplies - so I hope we all can be involved in some way over the three days! If you are able to help, please contact me or add your name to the sign up sheet in church. Thank you! Ray Pilgrim 07956 560 026.

WE NEED another one or two people to deliver Crosslinks at Oaktree. Please see Sue or Tony Williams if you can help.

THINKING OF CONFIRMATION? If you have never been confirmed and would like to be please see Anne. There is a Confirmation Service on Thursday 4th April at All Saints' Wrington. The Alpha course would be excellent preparation for this - though a separate course can be arranged for those who can't make that. Please prayerfully consider if this is right for you if you have not already been confirmed.

CHURCH FLOWERS - it is lovely to have flowers in church and they give us much joy. In order to keep having flowers in church it has been worked out that if every member of the church family gave £5 once a year we would have enough money for the flower fund.

Will you take on the Bishops’ Lent Challenge? LIVING WELL IN GOD’S WORLD: appreciation, concern, responsibility, incarnation, love, new creation. Sign up for challenges, readings, prayer and reflection direct to your inbox or download resources at: www.bathandwells.org.uk/Lent-Living-Well-2019 See the noticeboard for more information.

PRAYER CHAIN - If you need prayer for yourself or another then there is a team of people ready to pray. For Locking, please contact Christine Sceeny phone 822331 or for Hutton Kay Cole phone 811424 and they will send out the prayer request. It would be lovely to know how the person we are praying for is getting on, or whether they still need more prayer. It is a great encouragement for us all to hear that God is answering our prayers, please send feedback to Christine or Kay. Thank you.


WESTON NIGHT ASSESSMENT CENTRE There is a box in the porch (Locking) and by the font (Hutton) for donations for the Night Assessment Centre as they desperately need new underwear (men’s small and medium size), new socks and toiletries: shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste and brushes.
