Walton news
During the weeks of August we will be having a prayer time on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6.30pm till 7.00pm. It would be really good if as many people could support this and commit to at least one session a week. 
 
The main thrust is to pray into what God wants us to do and how.
His vision for our local Church, the Village and community.
To pray against strongholds and freedom of the Holy Spirit to guide us.
To pray about the new Children's groups starting in September.
To pray about the next Alpha Course we will be running, starting  at 7.00pm, Wednesday 20th September 2017. 
Please commit and support this for the building of the Kingdom.
  
Sewing machines wanted
Do you have an unwanted sewing machine?  If you would like to donate it to Walton for their children’s clubs, please contact Sharon Knight on 07931 325 288. Thanks.
 
1st Sunday Praise – help needed
We are short of a technician to project the words for the first Sunday of the month praise service.  The way it is constructed means literally all you have to do is press the forward button.  Please could you let Suzie(suzieattheoldvic@googlemail.com) know if you could help us out on this occasion. Thanks
 
Thank you to everyone who prayed & supported myself and the rest of the team. We completed the Channel Relay Swim on the 13th July in a time of 11 hours 56 mins.  We’ve raised approx. £4000 for Make A Wish.  Jessica Hudson
 
Thank you for your continued generosity towards the purchase of a slate at the Parish Church.
 
Songs of Praise on your televisions this evening was filmed at New Wine.  Watch it to get a taste of the worship and to see if you can spot anyone you know!
 
Our hearts and prayers go out to Karly, Summer and Carmen at this very sad time.  Mike was extremely kind hearted and accepted everyone just as they were.  We will all miss him so much.
‘The eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms’  Deuteronomy 33:27.
 
Street Parish Church: “Work Drop-In”
Are you able to wield a paintbrush?  Use secateurs?  Climb a ladder to clean windows?  Put a foot on the bottom of a ladder?  Make coffee or wash up for the other workers?
On Friday September 1st we’re holding a “Work Drop-In” at Street Parish Church from 10am to 4pm when we will work together to do some inside and (weather permitting!) outside jobs that need doing before Winter.  
Feel free to join us for an hour or to stay for the whole day if you’d like to!  Drinks and biscuits will be provided throughout the day but you’ll need to bring your own lunch, or take a trip to the chippie!
If you have your own paintbrush/secateurs/loppers that would be great but, if you haven’t, don’t let that put you off as some will be available.  Those of us who live locally might also bring a ladder…..(!)
Any questions?  Contact Jill on 01458 440293 or jep@psmail.net    All welcome!
 
Music, Magic & Making a Difference.  Saturday 30th September at Millfield.  Mercy Ships fundraiser. 
Early bird tickets at £5 only till end August ~ get your ticket from Elizabeth or Sonia at the office.
