PRAYER SPACE
Following the success of Prayer Space in School this summer we have had a number of requests to run something similar for adults perhaps during Advent. With this in mind Revd Paula is looking for a small group of creative minds to help her with the planning and creating of each space. The prayer space will be in both St Lawrence and St Bartholomew so it would be nice if the small group is drawn from across the benefice. Please email or call Paula for more details 323106 revpaula@btinternet.com

HELP! Please would you consider helping on the Sunday tea and coffee rota? You can do it with a friend/wife/husband. You only have to buy milk. You do not have to wash up. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. It involves arriving a little earlier on a Sunday, setting out the trays with mugs and biscuits and filling the urn. After the service you would make up to 35 cups of very welcome tea and coffee. This is a real service to our church family, a lovely welcome to newcomers. We need someone to do the first and the Fourth Sunday of the month. Speak to Marion Hyde on 01327 857947.


2017 - 2018 FILM NIGHTS
Nigel Slater’s session of film nights for this winter will be held on a Monday evening at 7.30 pm, as usual at Silverstone Methodist Church. The programme will be as follows:
27 November - Saving Grace
22 January - Brief Encounter
19 February - Local Hero
19 March - Hidden Figures
There will be three or four 'thoughts to consider' on the screen afterwards, to which the audience's attention will be drawn. People can ponder these - if they wish - over their coffee and biscuits. After research and discussion, it was agreed that there'd be nothing more substantial or organised than this.

HOLY LAND VISIT
Some parts of Palestine/ Israel have changed beyond recognition, some parts and views are very similar to what Jesus would have seen. Just as in Jesus’ day there are people who struggle against huge oppression and some who live generously and risk ostracism to show compassion. There is much to see, much to enter into and much to support and pray for. We are planning a Pilgrimage from our Benefice in November 2018. This gives time for preparation, saving up and looking forward to it. If you are at all interested, please look at the brochure either on the Benefice website or pick up a copy from church . Do talk to one of the clergy. It is not cheap, but will support local Christian guides, bus drivers, hotels and help Benefice Events 5 keep Christians in the land telling the story and being salt and light in it and drawing out God’s love in all people there. We hope to provide a few subsidized places as part of this so please don’t let the significant price put you off exploring this at this early stage do please talk to one of the clergy if you are interested.
