Latest News for Advent time

The Church will be open for anyone to drop in for a chat or just some quiet time with a cuppa on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 12:15 and 1:45pm.  

The Messy Nativity Journey.  Mary and Joseph are enjoying staying with families in our area. One child wanted to take them to bed. Another wanted to know if she could name the baby! All are very excited about choosing a sheep to keep. A big “thank you” to all the knitters for some wonderful characterful sheep. Please keep praying that God will bless each home receiving the Nativity set this Advent. 

Kimm will be very pleased to receive any articles for the next Messenger as soon as possible, please. 

Our annual Toy Service took place last Sunday and as usual the toys and gifts for mothers will be given to Huddersfield Women’s Aid which is part of the Pennine Domestic Violence Group.   

Tickets for the raffle of the Christmas Hamper are available today, from Angela Robinson and at Thursday coffee.  All proceeds will go to Women’s Aid and will cost £1 per ticket.   

The latest editions of "In Touch" (The Circuit Newsletter), the January plan and the District Newsletter are available in the foyer, please collect a copy to keep in touch! 

Christmas stamps - if you are buying stamps for your Christmas cards please ask for the religious stamps, Madonna and Child. Some post offices don't automatically offer them and Royal Mail will only continue with religious stamps if there is a demand.  

Welcome Centre: The Church Council agreed that on the first Sunday of each month the box will be at the front of Church to remind us of the need to support the Welcome Centre. The box will be in the foyer on the other Sundays to receive your gifts.
