COMING UP

CHRISTMAS INVITES Do take a bundle of Christmas invites to deliver. It is a great encouragement to be able to knock on doors and invite people to our services, as well as wishing them a Happy Christmas. If you would like to join others as we deliver and knock on doors, do join us after church on 26th November from 12-1 so that you can learn from an experienced hand. Many thanks.

CHRISTMAS SERVICES– In the next few weeks a sign-up sheet will be available to help with planning the practical side of our Christmas Services. Please do consider to which services you may wish to bring friends or family, and at which services you may be able to offer help welcoming, stewarding, with refreshments, moving chairs, car-parking, or tidying up after. Please sign up or contact Viv McGuinness at the church office (01206 243262 or viv.mcguinness@fordhamchurch.org.uk).

‘TIME TO REMEMBER’ Sunday 3 December – 2.00pm Eight Ash Green. This is an opportunity to give thanks to God for those we have loved and for whom we grieve. Many from the parish come who have had links with the church through bereavement. Do come for encouragement and to support others. It is good to have those attending who are not necessarily there for their own benefit but to be available to talk. Invitation cards are available from the welcome table or the office. Do invite those who may be helped.
