A visit to Zambia?
As part of next year’s 40th Anniversary Celebrations of the Diocesan Zambian link, Tony Cook is planning with our Zambian partners for a Youth Exchange trip in 2018.
Are you aged 18-24 and interested in taking part in the exchange to Zambia?
Full information about the trip and application forms will be available soon on the Bath & Wells website. You can    e-mail Tony Cook <Tony.Cook@bathwells.anglican.org> or call 07922576757 to find out more. Or speak initially to Jane Tompsett.
 
Don’t forget to wrap up warm and bring your torches whilst attending services in Street during October as the heat and light will not be switched on.  This is NOT a cost cutting measure, rather an exercise to raise awareness of the increasing costs which we face as a PCC, (see the October magazine for more facts and figures).
 
Join us for BIG WORSHIP on Saturday 28th October at Mission Church.
6pm for 6.30 start. "Coming back to the heart of worship"  Music led by Rowena and Nigel Steady and band.

The Hiding Place – Mission Church, 19th October, 7.30pm           The incredible story of the Ten Boom's, a devoted Christian family who felt they couldn't just watch the devastating circumstances of the Jews so they acted and set out on an incredible rescue mission. This led to Corrie and her sister being imprisoned in the Second World War.
The production focuses on God's influence on Corrie's life and how God gave her the strength and means to do his work in terrible circumstances. It is the story of God's love and hope in an environment of darkness and brutality.
This production is for 15+ and tickets can be obtained in advance from Sonia in the office or www.oddments-theatre.co.uk (£8.50) or on the door (£10.50).
Please spread the word, let’s make it a sell out!

All welcome!
 
Glitter and Glow
Our alternative halloween party celebrating Jesus as the true light of the world will be taking place on the 31st October from 5-6.30 at the Mission church.  Crafts and activities aimed at primary school age children with food provided.  If anybody is able to help at this event please speak to Hannah or contact her on hannah.l.northcott@gmail.com or 07890189938.  Any clean jam jars gratefully received for one of the crafts.  Thank you.
 
The 5th Sunday
The service at Street Parish Church on October 29th will be “Morning Worship with a Difference” and not “Worship with a Difference” as was advertised.  All are welcome!
Sorry for any confusion.
 
I am excited that The Mission Church in Street is hosting a Bath and Wells Diocese event partnering with CMS (The Church Mission Society) on Saturday 11 November, entitled, ‘Mission Is …..’
This is a free event between 10.00 and 3.30, it is a day looking at local pioneer mission and what God is doing globally.
The main speaker is Ram Prasad Shrestha. Based in Kathmandu, Nepal, Ram Prasad trains and equips Asian Christians for pioneering mission in tough places. You’ll be truly inspired by his story and his heart.
I pray this day will help you to think about and reflect on Mission, and how you and your parish could be involved locally and how you can prayerfully support mission overseas.
Please note it is not a fund raising day.
Please join us to discover how you and your church can be set free to join in God’s mission – whether overseas or over the road.
Due to limited places, pre-booking is essential. Visit the Church
Mission Society website to book your place or for further information email Jane Tompsett, jktompsett@googlemail.com.
Leaflets are available at the back of the churches.
 
Holy Trinity Walton Christmas Quiz, price £2.00, is now available. Please contact Pat Moxey at 9, Bluestone Court, Oxendale, Street, BA16 0NF or telephone 01458 443689.
  
HTC Walton - Gift Day.
Following our appeal to the Village and friends of the church to financially support the church, it was great to receive so many people for refreshments and a chat. "Thank you" to the generous donors for your support. If anyone would still like to make a donation, it's never too late...
  
At 6am on Sunday 22nd October Diana Greenfield will gather with 9 students and one other staff member from Strode College to begin their journey to The Mathieson Music School on the outskirts of Kolkata in India.  They will be staying for two weeks travelling home on 5/6th November. Please pray for the trip, both the travelling to and from India and for the variety of experiences that the students will encounter.  Also pray for Diana as she seeks to pastorally support the group.  There is limited internet access at the school so Diana is hoping to up load a regular travel blog for people to follow the trip.  You can follow this at www.offexploring.com/dmgreenfield
  
Please note that there will be no JAM at Walton on 14th and 21st October.
