OTHER IMPORTANT NEWS

WORSHIP GROUP
The Worship Group will soon be rehearsing their contribution for the carol service and would welcome anyone who would like to join them.  The first rehearsal will be on Sunday 26th October after coffee following the morning service.

ST MICHAEL’S HARVEST PRODUCE
Thank you, everyone, for bringing produce to the church for Harvest. The fresh produce went to the Day Centre (the Ashford Soup Kitchen is searching for new premises) and the non-perishable goods all went to Ashford Foodbank, of which there will shortly be a St Michael’s and Tenterden branch

THANK YOU, KAREN
Karen Edgar has made some lovely ‘busy bags’ for younger worshippers at St Mildred’s. We hope to be able to install some coat pegs so that these can hang in the children’s corner. Well done, Karen, and thank you!

CRY IN THE DARK
Following the success of the recent trip to Romania, Terry is putting a team together for next year. He has several people who are interested but would like to invite others who might like to go to support the work of Cry in the Dark with orphaned children. The trip will take place in August. Contact Terry on terry.norrington@btinternet.com  / 762296 / 07711177726.

INFORMATION

HELP US CARE!
Please do tell one of the ministers if you know of someone who hasn’t been to church for a while or is unwell. And if you are going into hospital and would like a visit, do let us know.

A MOTHERS’ UNION CHRISTMAS
Before you order your Christmas cards, do look at the display on the Mothers’ Union table in St Mildred’s.

Catalogues and order forms are on the table - Wendy Stevenson

Coffee at Cedar Court is a monthly get together from 10am until 11.30am, to which all those who are bereaved are warmly invited. You can obtain more information from any of the ministers

WELCOME TO THOSE VISITING US FOR THE FIRST TIME
