Holy Trinity Foodstore – URGENT  We currently only have enough food for one collection. There is a box for food donations in the Mission Church hallway.  Any non-perishable food will be accepted and given to those in need.  We have enough dried pasta and rice but do need the following:
Tinned beans, tomatoes, fish, meat, soup, vegetables, fruit and milk.  Also breakfast cereals, long life milk and healthy snacks.  Thanks, Sharon, Sonia and Pam.
Alpha Course
I have decided to postpone the Alpha course that was originally planned to start on Wednesday 20th September.  Hopefully we will be ready to offer this after Christmas.  It just seems too soon after Mike’s death and we need this time to re-adjust and to heal. ‘Praise be to God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.’ (2 Cor. 1:3&4)
