There will be: 10 beds, showers, an assessment system and a cooked breakfast in the morning. They need 3 people on a sleep rotation from 9.30pm to 6 am, then 2 people from 6am to 8am providing breakfast. At least 30 people more people to make it happen. Please join this in making the team swell with more than enough help as we love our vulnerable neighbours as best we can. Please contact Joe Heslop at the YMCA on 07891 809004 for more info.

MEMORIAL SERVICE this year is to be held in Hutton, 4th November at 6pm. Please add names to the sign up sheet for those you would like to be remembered at this service.

MESSY CHURCH - this is a very important part of our outreach as a church and we would love to see God do even more with the people who come along as we meet in Hutton school hall. We believe that prayer is the key to this and would like to ask if there are people who will pledge to pray for Messy Church on a very regular basis and who we could update regularly. If you would like to commit to praying then please sign the list and we will get in touch with you with more helpful information for your prayers.

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.
