A massive thank you to everyone who came to help at the working party on Friday. Everyone worked incredibly hard and we managed to get a lot done.
There's still more to do though, so watch this space for the date of the next party!

We'll be talking more about this in the service tomorrow, but for more info and a list of gift suggestions, please click here.

BMS World Mission
Please join us this week as we pray for the nation of Lebanon.
- BMS supports churches as they distribute aid and come alongside struggling refugees and Lebanese people. Pray that the comfort and peace shared would continue to have an impact.
- BMS helps provide non-formal education for refugee children. Give thanks for the stories of stability and hope that parents share with our partner. Pray that this education will give these children healthy ways to deal with the trauma they have experienced.
- Pray that the Lebanese people and world leaders will find ways to revitalise the economy so that the population will be lifted from poverty and be able to afford basic necessities.
