LOCKING CHURCH TOWER – it has been discovered that the joists supporting the ringing chamber are rotten and therefore access to the tower, and the area under the tower by the font is now out of bounds. The ringing of the bells has been suspended until further notice. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

The Church has launched 'TENNER FOR THE TOWER', a fun-time challenge to raise funds for the Church Tower Repairs. Our Treasurer will be handing out £10 notes, to anyone accepting the challenge, to increase this sum as much as they can. Please use your skills and imagination, involving your family and friends, in any way you can. There will be a board in Church showing suggestions if you are stuck for ideas. The more fun we have, the better.

OPEN CHURCH - The Church is open from 10am to dusk on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays for visiting and peace and quiet. There is a local History Exhibition in the church about the village, the church and the former RAF Locking. Also on Thursdays, from 2pm until 5pm, tea, coffee and biscuits is available for visitors to enjoy.

PRAYER CHAIN. If you have sent in a 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.

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. www.bathandwells.org/shapingourfuture

SOMEWHERE TO GO provides a safe, non-judgmental 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 822408), thank you.
