NEW WESTON NIGHT ASSESSMENT CENTRE There is a

place for those who need support, advice, a friendly ear and
it has been a crutch to many people who have been lost, lonely
and at crisis points in their lives. Hot meals, access to a
shower and medical help is provided 3 days a week. We rely entirely
on donations and urgently require sleeping bags and funds. Please
contact Mike or Margaret Cooper in Locking if you can help (Tel

PRAYER FOR THE BENEFICE. There is a diocesan strategy
‘To place mission and evangelism at the heart of everything
we do’. To this end it would be good to use this prayer,
issued by the diocese: A prayer for Shaping our Future. Gracious
God, may your Holy Spirit guide us into the future. Help us,
throughout the diocese, to show uninhibited reliance on your
grace and power as we seek renewal of our lives. Give us courage,
rigour, imagination and generosity in order that your kingdom
may come and your abundant life be known by all. Amen.
November’s DIOCESAN PRAYER CALENDAR is now
available at www.bathandwells.org.uk/prayer-calendar. Each month
the calendar will highlight specific intentions in one or two
Deaneries, together with a reflection for a Rural Dean on the
ministry they see around them and a message from a member of
Bishop’s Staff. Some copies are printed and are in church
- please take your copy!
