As a Church we are giving over the first 40 days of 2014 to prayer and fasting. There will be a list at Info Point this Sunday and next Sunday for you to sign up for daily slots. You can sign up for as many days as you like, and there’s no limit to the number of people signing up for the same day.
There will be no morning meeting on Sunday 22nd December but there will be not one, but two performances of ‘Inn-Conceivable!’, an all age nativity play with humour, song, carols, dance and a meaningful message. The first one is at 3pm and then at 6pm. Doors open half an hour before. There will be festive refreshments to follow both. Invitations are available at Info Point.
If you would like to help serve refreshments or welcome at both, or either please see Flix Gillett.
On Sunday 8th December, there will be the opportunity to have a fun photo taken, holding a Christmas greeting and wearing some form of festive item (optional!). This is to replace our Christmas Square greetings card of previous years and to save you the time and expense of sending all your ACC friends a card. (We hope that you will put the money you save into the special Christmas Day offering). The photos taken will be put into a slide show which will be shown over the Christmas meetings.
There will be festive props and writing materials for your greetings, but if you want to bring your own props and pre-written message please do. So, round up some friends and/or family and get posing!
Instead of the Wreath Making at Wickbourne on Sunday, Cre8 will now be making Candle Arrangements. If you would like to be involved please bring a suitable container and greenery to share. If you have any unwanted Christmas baubles or decorations that may be suitable, please bring those along also. In addition, there’ll be alternative Christmas projects for you all to be involved in! Come at 1.30pm with lunch to share, or at 2pm.
Romance Academy is a 14 week course looking at sex, relationships and self esteem. 13 young people have been doing this course and they would love to tell you all about it and what they’ve learnt from being involved, so please come along to The Romance Academy Graduation evening on Tuesday 10th December at the Wickbourne Centre from 7.30 – 8.30pm. Refresh Café will be open. Pippa Harsant
Links has some new books and CDs left over from previous international mailings and the team will be selling them on Sunday, for a donation towards Links’ work. They will also have copies of the latest free Links magazine with updates on what God is doing overseas. Please do have a look and support them if you can.
