SUNDAY CRÈCHE We hope to encourage all our tiny people to be in church from the start, so the volunteer-led crèche time in the Primary Room will come into play at the same time the kids leave for FOG Club. No-one, not least the tiny person’s responsible adult, should worry about noise & movement normally associated with such little ones! It’s nice for everyone to be together as the service begins. However, if the need arises, the Primary Room is still available to use from the start for the responsible adults & little ones; when the volunteers arrive they’ll take over. Stephen would also welcome crèche-aged kids joining with the others for the children’s talk. For more information about crèche, or if you’d like to find out about volunteering, please speak with Ruth Colhoun or Linda Allison.
SUNDAY SERVICES Our themes over the coming months on Sunday mornings will be “Just what the doctor ordered” looking at the book of Acts. Then in the evenings we will look at “Songs for the road” from the Song of Ascents (Psalms 120-134).
THANKS FROM ACTION CANCER We want to thank you for the opportunity to sell Christmas cards at your recent Christmas fair. A total of £89 was raised which will go towards helping people affected by cancer in Northern Ireland.

If you haven’t been involved in a group be-fore or have taken a break, we warmly invite you to join us in January. Groups are available on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

I remember well the years 1975-79 when I studied at St. Chrischona Bible and Missionary Seminary in Switzerland. We were a group of students who prayed for Asia every week. Thanks for your interest in the Manobo work!
