ALPHA COURSE After the success of Alpha this year another one will be starting on Wednesday 24th September at 10am in the green lounge. Alpha works by invitation and bringing people along with you. There are fliers in church for you to invite your friends, family and neighbours. Please take an invitation flier and invite someone to Alpha and come along with them.

PRAYER MEETING on Tuesday 8th October 7pm - 8pm - do come and join us in the Green Lounge - all are welcome! When we pray we ask for God's kingdom to come and it does!

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 or 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.

WELCOME! As from 2nd September we will be having an ordinand with us in the Benefice. An ordinand is someone who has been recommended for training to be ordained. She will be starting her full - time training at Sarum College with myself as her training supervisor. She is called Larissa Trust, married to Robert and they have 3 children. She will be with us throughout the whole of her 2 years training and will spend one day a week in the benefice and also one morning in church. Please note that this is very different from having a curate and also as with a curate she is not here to help me but to be trained and for me to support both her and her family. Please welcome her and her family when they are with us.

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.

WESTON FOODBANK - Please leave any non-perishable goods in the box in the porch for Locking and by the font for Hutton. Thank you for your continued support.
