Alpha & Alpha Plus Both of these courses have had to be postponed because so many of the helpers and participants are out of action with health problems. We plan to start the next Alpha course in the Autumn (details to follow nearer the time). The Alpha Plus course will begin when we can get a team together.

Parish Nurse Ali works on Tuesday and Friday. You can contact her by mobile phone on 07870 946475, or by leaving a note on her desk. Please pray for Ali & Gill and the people they visit.

Postage Stamps Lots of used stamps come through our letter-boxes at this time of year! Home Mission can make use of these and turn them into cash. There is a container for collecting them in the back room.

Food Bank It is important to remember those who find it difficult to put food on the family table at this time of year. Please keep a steady flow of the items required coming in. Thank You.

Flower Rota Please speak to Pat about how you can help with this during 2018.

New Year Fellowship Lunch – Will follow the morning service on 28th January. Please invite your fiends and sign up on the notice in the back room. Volunteers for puddings welcome – please see Elizabeth.

Just Arrived The latest 'Anchored Magazine' and information from 'Transform Europe Now' – please pick up a copy from Clare's Corner.

Quote of the Week We are significant not because of what we do, but because of whose we are..” (Max Lucardo)

Prayer: Here are some of the things our fellowship will be praying about this week.

EBA: Little Thetford Baptist Church The church building was in a pitiful state back in 2009 but with the Lords provision it has now been fully refurbished after the award of a grant in 2014. Little Thetford Baptist Church has a small congregation led by village Pastor Tudor Parsons. It is a gentle and loving fellowship, who earnestly seek God’s will, both for their lives and for those they pray for. 

Adopt-a-Road: We are praying for the residents of Silver Drive this week.

Personal: Ivy, Glady, Eileen and Doreen in Aldringham Court

Pat who is having problems with her foot.

Anja reports that her back injury is much improved – Thank you Lord!

Sandy (One of our Alpha team) was admitted to hospital on Boxing Day. He is now recovering at home – and His wife Annette who needs surgery on her hand.
