Woodmancote Appeal
We are pleased to announce the successful completion of this Autumn's Appeal to support works of restoration at Woodmancote Church.  We had set a target of £14,000. Following an energetic campaign of events, the support of the PCC, and generous individual contributions from churchgoers and villagers throughout the parish, we have achieved a total of £21,500. This will allow us to pursue works in 2018, inside and outside, to restore the Church to its former glories. Well done!

Christmas greetings
Revd Andrew and Karen Doye thank parishioners for their kind greetings at Christmas, and wish you a new year of peace, joy and love.

Christmas Lunch
Many thanks to everyone, helpers and supporters – this most enjoyable event raised some £700.  

Stonepillow
£248 was collected during the carol singing in The Square.

Laptop PC needed for students in Tanzania
We are wondering if there is anyone who has an old but still good laptop/PC? Daudi, one of my drivers in TZ, is going back to college to study computing this January.  He could not do this before because his English was not strong enough but after driving me for 2 years it has improved, and he was accepted on the course.  However, he needs a computer and I have promised to try and get one for him.  Please get in touch with Robina.

First Friday Lunch for the Church Army
Join us to enjoy homemade soup, a roll and cheese and a hot drink, and at the same time support the Church Army which believes it is wrong that there are people in this country who are homeless, living in poverty and are marginalised for all sorts of different reasons.  

Friday 5 January 2018 event
Twelfth Night Food and Fizz at Paula and Russell’s 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Tickets £10 with all proceeds going to church funds. Come and have some new year fun!
 

2018 is the Diocesan Year of Prayer

Why not make this a year in which you find a greater place for prayer in your life? 

Ideas include:

  • saying the Lord's Prayer each day
  • joining us for Morning Prayer in St John' the Baptist Church at 8.30am, once each week
  • lighting a candle at a set time each day and offering a few minutes of silence and intercession
  • a scheme could be:

Monday - parts of the world in hunger, war or need
Tuesday - those we know who are unwell, or sad
Wednesday - our protection of the earth & wise use of the world's resources
Thursday - your family, and those people closest to you
Friday - your own 'walk with God'
Saturday - Westbourne, its surrounding area, and our churches.
