AFTER-SCHOOL CLUB led by Ray Pilgrim - it is good to hear that the number of children attending is growing. We desperately need more helpers! If you are able to help, please contact Ray Pilgrim 07956 560 026.

FLOWERS IN CHURCH Flowers remind us of the beauty of God’s creation, help us celebrate important life events, and provide a welcome to all who either visit the church or attend services. The flowers are mostly provided by the generosity of church members, but we have lost many who gave regularly and need new folk to consider whether they could support this – as little as £5 per year will enable us to put a vase in each week. If you live in the parish of Locking and would like to give towards this, perhaps in memory of a loved one, please contact me with your specific date. Alternatively donations can be made anonymously through the service collections or the Donations box in church in a clearly marked envelope. Thank you for your help, Gillian Jones. Tel: 01934 813780

Please could LOCAL PHOTOS OF INTEREST (not people) to be emailed to Janet Croad for a library of suitable front cover material for Crosslinks. Acknowledgement will be given for the photograph’s source.

MEN’S BREAKFAST - Saturday 12th January 9am Locking Church Centre - please take an invite for your friends and sign up on the sheet in church.

ALPHA will be starting on Thursday 24th January 2019 at 10am in Locking Church Centre - followed by a simple lunch. I know it is ages away but please start praying about who you could invite and bring along. If you have never done the Alpha course I strongly encourage you to come along. There will be invitation flyers available at the beginning of December. Please put the date in your diary and please pray that many people give their lives to Jesus in 2019.

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 Colephone 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.

NEW 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 medium and large size), new socks and toiletries: shampoo, shower gel,toothpaste and brushes.
