ANOTHER 24 HOUR PRAYER EVENT: will take place at Welcome Baptist Church on Friday 24th November 7.00pm. to Saturday 25th November 7.00pm.

Everyone is welcome: watch for further details soon.

CHRISTIAN AID: The committee are delighted to report that a total of £658.43 was raised by the sponsored walk in September (plus Gift Aid of £58.00) for the Christian Aid general fund. And Phil Hinde’s talk raised an additional £121.06 for the South Asia Floods Appeal.

A donation of £27.00 also came from St. Richard’s Church from tradecraft. Many thanks for all of this!

“MEETING POINT”: Cafechurch has changed its name and “Meeting Point” met for the first time on October 12th in the Coffee Lounge at Union Church, instead of in the Community Centre as we have done for the past year. Dr. Jane Woodgate gave an excellent talk on her recent pilgrimage to Lourdes.This is now a group of around 25 people, mainly from the churches, who enjoy the cafechurch format and want to continue to meet occasionally, in different churches and on different days of the week, in future. All are welcome and suggestions for future topics or speakers will be gratefully received. Next meeting probably in January.

STREET PASTORS: are very grateful to have a new secretary, Margaret Thomas of Kings Church replacing Fran Huff who has retired and a new Street Pastor, Dr. Jane Woodgate of St. Philip’s Church! We are still seeking a new co-ordinator, to replace Ruth Waller who also retired in July. and we should love to have more volunteers to be Street Pastors or Prayer Pastors!

LOCAL REFUGEES: So far, our churches have made 6 offers to Maria Graves (Resettlement Officer for Wealden Council), of general help,  English language teaching, an opportunity for volunteer work and one possible property for accommodation. We have also given her a box full of English language resources which should be useful. Please keep these needs in mind and if you are able to offer any kind of help, do contact George Dearsley or one of your CTH & D representatives.
