There will be a Jigsaw Puzzle Festival at Bitterne URC (above Iceland in Bitterne Precinct) from Monday 26th to Saturday 31st October, 10am to 4pm (7pm on Thursday). Hundreds of puzzles will be on display and available to buy. Admission is £1.50, including a free drink and permitting free return during the week. Accompanied children are free.

Please note that there will be no Coffee Morning on the third Saturday of October or November. In December there will be a table top sale, and the Christmas Tree Festival on the Saturdays before Christmas.

How about sparing a little time to pray with us? We meet on the third Wednesday of each month (except August) in the new Vestibule Room, from 7pm to 8pm. We spend time listening to one another, giving thanks for things that have happened, and bringing concerns to be prayed for. If you cannot join us this month, why not pray for all or some of the following?

  •  Conflict situations around the World
  •  The needs of members of our congregation
  •  Our young people, and our local schools, at the start of a new academic year
  •  Church growth, including continuing to build a positive mindset to respond to the opportunities that God brings us, as individuals, as a congregation and as a group
  •  For all those who minister here

If you would like those meeting to pray for a concern or issue that you have, then you can always let Tim or myself know.
