Church Giving – Street and Walton
You may have noticed that as it is Advent, the 2018 weekly giving envelopes are now ready for collection. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kind donations to church funds throughout 2017, whether it has been through weekly envelopes, monthly standing orders or through the plate. 2017 was going to be a tough year financially but thanks to your generosity, it hasn’t been as bad as expected. THANK YOU, Sonia.
We hope you can join us at Refresh in Mission Church at 6.30pm TODAY - Jay Landymore and Derek Hills
Refresh will start again on 7th January.
At Refresh on Sunday 14th January we will be licensing Suzie Williams, Elizabeth Cottell and Andy Savage (from Polden Wheel) as Lay Worship Assistants, followed by refreshments. All are very welcome to support and encourage them in this commitment.

There is a pile of invitations at the back of each church.
