Harvest Service – Sunday 24th September

Sunday 24th September will be our Harvest service. If you’d like to bring gifts for our Harvest appeal for the Leighton-Linslade Homeless Service, please bring your donations on the day or during the following week to Delta House. They would particularly welcome: fresh veg; tinned food especially potatoes, tomatoes, soups, rice pudding and fruit; pasta and rice; liquid soap, men’s roll-on deodorant and personal care products (but preferably not toothpaste or bar soap).
If anybody wants to find out more about the homeless service or is interested in visiting the Black Horse to see the changes that have been made in recent months, please contact the Church office.
ALSO we will be donating the loose offering taken at the Harvest service to Community Action Romania for crisis relief following the severe storm that hit the area around our partner church in Carand last Sunday. Severe winds and heavy rain struck on the Sunday whilst the church service was taking place, causing damage to a number of buildings and bringing trees and power lines down. Dani and other church members have been helping to make temporary repairs to the buildings but we can help provide funds to make more permanent repairs.

Supporting Iona Manley

Our church is very happy to be supporting one of our church family, Iona Manley, as she undertakes a year’s internship on the staff of St Aldates Church in Oxford starting in September 2017. She will be working with the church’s Children’s Pastor to oversee and organise all the activities for children, with responsibility for leading one particular age group.
Iona has created a blog in which she’ll be sharing her experiences, and you can read this at:
