Dear leaders of Churches in the Oswestry area,
We are writing to you on behalf of the Community Outreach Group (COG). As you may remember we have organised outreach events on the Bailey Head market at Christmas and Good Friday for a few years now. We are planning to be on the market again this year on the morning of Saturday 9th December from 10 a.m. till 1 p.m. Among other things we are hoping to give out a leaflet containing a short Christmas message as well as a Christmas tract. In this leaflet we should like to publicise up to two services from each of the churches. If you would like your church to be featured in the leaflet, please could you kindly let us have details of up to two key carol/christingle services you would like to advertise in order of preference in case there is space to include only one though we are hopeful we shall be able to include both. Please will you send us the details by Friday 10th November at the latest though of course it would be helpful to have them earlier if possible. You can send them by reply to this email address or by post to Mike and Oriel's address noted at the end of the next paragraph.
We are anticipating giving out more than 500 leaflets and, since they will also include a tract, there will be some expense involved. Any contributions would be gratefully received. If every church gave £10, that would help us significantly. If you would like to contribute towards the cost, you can send a cheque made payable to-

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, we look forward to hearing from you,
Mike, Oriel, Tracey and Gwyn
