Advent Cafe of Memories

The Advent Cafe of Memories on Thursday 19 November was a well-attended success.With the theme of Christmas Past, we all enjoyed making tree decorations and singing familiar carols. All this was accompanied with dumpling and good fun!

The next ‘Memories’ event will be an invitation to our Guild’s Christmas Party on 17 December at 2 p.m. Entertainment will include a singing contribution from the youngsters at Eastern Primary School.

A Prayer for Paris

Father, we are saddened by the news of the awful massacre in Paris on Friday night.

We pause to think of and pray for those affected. We remember those who were injured, asking that

You will be with the medical staff treating and caring for them.

We pray for those who grieve the loss of a family member or friend. Comfort them at this dreadful

time. We pray too for those who still seek news of a relative or friend.

Lord, be with the emergency services in the aftermath of this tragedy, and the politicians as they

discuss and take action.

Loving God your purpose and plan for our fallen, broken world was to send Jesus as Saviour. As we

approach this Advent time help us to remember that Your purpose still prevails.

Be with us in our time together today. Amen.
