Sharon’s leaving gift

Let’s Help Flush away poverty this Christmas
Thank you for the pennies collected for our toilet twinning. This week we raised £11.64 so now have a total of £16.69 towards the £60 we need.
Did you know nearly 900 children die every day due to illness from dirty water and poor sanitation? So please keep those pennies coming, to give a family in a poor community this life changing Christmas present.
Street and Walton giving
On behalf of Street and Walton PCCs I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has given to church funds over the past year, every penny is very much appreciated.
Mission Prayer Meeting. Wednesday December 5th, 7.30 am in the Mission Church. All welcome.
Holy Land Tour Wednesday 22nd April – Friday 1st May 2020
David and Pauline are excited at the prospect of sharing their experiences and pilgrimage with the tour planned for 2020. This will be a time of renewal and refreshment of body, soul and spirit.The Scriptures can come alive as we walk in the footsteps of Jesus and visit the places that He would have known well. We warmly invite you to share in this experience with us. We will watch the sunrise over Jerusalem and set over the Sea of Galilee!
Just a reminder that if you would like to join us on this tour please book with Worldwide Christian travel or see David or Pauline for a brochure as soon as possible.  We are aware people expressed an interest but have not yet booked.  If you would like to be part of this tour, a once in a lifetime experience, please book.  We would like numbers of 20+ and at present we are very close to this number.  In the new year we will be opening the tour and promoting this to a wider audience.
The list is growing but we do not want people to be disappointed when the tour is full!
