Julia Burton-Jones, (Diocesan Dementia Project Specialist) will be introducing the initiative called Anna Chaplaincy, on 5th Nov, 7.45 at the Eden Church. This ecumenical ministry by lay people, named after Anna (see Luke 2:36-38) brings spiritual support to those who are no longer able to enjoy the fellowship of attending church services, but for whom the comfort of reading the Bible and the value of prayer remains a lifeline. All welcome.

CHRISTMAS IS COMING! Yes I know, brutally early. But this is our year to run the Christmas Lunch at BRIDGES and I can't do it alone, not without giving everybody a Yuletide dose of botulism. If you can help please sign the list on the table. By all accounts it’s a good bash for 30/40 odd people and you get a free Christmas meal. BYO booze! People are also needed for 'pre-cooking' turkeys and the like. Fr Stephen
