The Building for the Future Fundraising Committee has been
working hard to devise a list of exciting events over the next few
months. These will start with a Gift Day on 30th November, and
then Gatton Community Theatre performing The Nativity, a
contemporary retelling of the original Christmas story, on 4th
January, 2015. Details of both will be found in the November
magazine and in Pews News. Tickets for the dramatised reading
will be on sale shortly. In addition to those publications, if you
would like to be kept informed of activities via email, please send
your email address to [email protected] to help us build a
mailing list, adding to those addresses we have received via
feedback forms. These will not be used for anything other than
fundraising related matters, but might prove a useful way of
helping you to spread the word about our project to friends
outside the church community.
Please send any contributions for Pews News to Anne Rueff at

Today’s anthems (at 10.30am) are “Christ has no body now but
yours”, a setting of the prayer of St Teresa of Avila (1515-82) set to

A vacancy has arisen on our church cleaning rota. A volunteer is
required to fill the slot during the week before the second Sunday each
month. All materials and equipment are provided and the job can be
carried out at any time during that week when the church is not being
used. A current member of the team will guide any new recruits as to
what is required.
Please contact one of the wardens if you can help. Many thanks.
We need a third person to help prepare the bread and wine for the
10.30am service. Cover is needed on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
Margaret Davis or Janet Watson would work alongside you until you are
happy with the preparation. We also need at least one more person to
cover the 5th Sunday, holidays and sickness.
If you would like to join the team please speak to Janet or Margaret or
contact one of the church wardens.
Car Lift Service: There is a small team of people who give lifts, on a rota
basis, to those who would otherwise find it difficult to come to church

you feel that you may be able to help in this way please speak to Frances
Wood for more information (01737 233644 or [email protected]).
Thank you.
