Notices for 24th September, 2017


Being Disciples: the essentials of the Christian life by Rowan Williams – Justin Welby says  “Here is quite the most beautiful writing on the Christian life I know. I commend it to those who have been on this journey a long time as well as anyone who wonders what on earth following Jesus is all about.”  A group of us are going to be reading this book a chapter at a time and everyone is invited to come along and join us. We start on 25th September at 10.30 for six weeks and you are extremely welcome to come and join us in the Seckford Room. The book has many nuggets of wisdom and we aim to chew those over, gently supported by a facilitator from Time to Reflect. If you are interested please put your name on the sign-up sheet (which has the dates) at the back of the church or talk to Rita James (01394 380949) or Caroline Hawksley (01394 387848).

BRING OUT YOUR BRAS Ipswich Soroptimists are collecting unwanted new or 'gently' used bras to help women and girls who have survived trafficking from Africa to set up their own businesses. Every 100 bras will enable a woman to set up her own business selling second hand bras in a local market.
