A Thank you from Moira
Thank you does not seem an adequate word to use to describe the wonderful event last week, but it is the only one I have. So thank you so very much for the hard work, generosity, love and care that went into the whole day. The pictures, gifts, the book and cards will be treasured forever. Now, some of the questions I was asked over the last few months, makes sense. I hope you all enjoyed the event as much as I did, I think I am still getting my head around it all. May God Bless you all. Moira

Gifts for School Leavers.
It is traditional for the church to give a small gift to each pupil leaving Fishbourne primary school as they prepare to start at senior school. If you would like to contribute towards this our treasurer Robert would be very grateful. Please put your donation, and it does not have to be huge, in one of the white envelopes, and mark it School Leavers. Thank you in advance for your continued support.
The latest news letter is on the table near the Jenny Green board, so do take a look.
Please thank God for
* the good reputation of the Medical Centre for its cleanliness and care.
* the continued good work of the Nutrition Unit in teaching mothers to feed their children well with what they have.
Please pray for
* medical staff willing to volunteer with the project.

You are invited to write a prayer on one of the luggage labels on the prayer table and hang it on the prayer tree. Perhaps it could be a prayer of praise and thanksgiving or may be a prayer of intercession. Thank you.
