Hi everyone, I’m spending my gap year as an intern at
YMCA Exeter working with vulnerable and homeless
young people. On Sat 6th Dec. I’m doing a Santa
Abseil - abseiling from a multi-storey car park
wearing a Santa suit! This is to raise funds for the
work the YMCA are doing with their housing
residents, job clubs, youth clubs and local prison. If
you’d like to sponsor me you can do this online using
this link https://www.justgiving.com/M-ANGELL or
you can see my mum, Helen , who will have a
sponsor form with her! Thanks for your support and a
big thank you to everyone who’s been praying for
me . Meg Angell
EBA ask us to pray for Sheringham
We give praise to God as we celebrate our first year at
the Lighthouse. It’s been an amazing year of seeing
God make absolute full use of the building as we
reach out to the community and they enjoy the
facilities this new building provides. The cafe has
been a huge success with five days of the week
providing a place of meeting and food for all ages.
Our young people' s work touches over 200 young people a
week thro" mix" and "schools out " at the church and the
football teams outside. Do check out our new website.
But most of all the Lord continues to touch the lives of His
people through our Sunday services and midweek study
streams. It’s been an incredible journey with Him and
there is much more to come.
BMS ask us to pray about Gender Based Violence
This week we’re praying for the BMS Dignity initiative
– supporting communities worldwide to take a stand
against gender based violence (GBV) as it shows up in
their own neighbourhoods.
Join with us in prayer, that the Holy Spirit will
open closed minds and hostile hearts through the
programmes and resources on offer.
For Connect Groups:
Worship Read Hebrews 13v12 together and spend a few
moments giving thanks to God for Jesus, for the price He
paid and for what He has won for us.
Word Read Hebrews 13. What are the promises in this
passage and how have they proved true in your life?
This passage contains a number of different pieces of
practical advice. Which ones stand out for you and why?
Is there anything in this passage that surprises you, raises a
question in your mind or you don’t understand?
Continue to pray for one another on your Front Lines.
Pray for the Christmas events and the people you will be
Close by praying v20-21 over each other.

invited to consider making a gift, or a loan, or a
commitment to monthly giving, to enable the finances to
be met. Further details of the plans, and the means of
giving, are outlined in the Pledge Forms which are now
available. Please speak to any of the Leadership if you
require any further information.
BMS Birthday Scheme The amount donated so far
this year is £947.20 (£561.00 of this given as Gift Aid)

of recent months, the need for medical outreach is greater
than ever and this is the area where your Birthday
Scheme giving helps.

respond, there are not many more weeks to this year!!
you help with the Stable Family Photo to either (1) set up
the gazebo and display at around 1.00pm OR (2) help at

Pastoral Contacts Meeting. All Pastoral Contacts are
invited to a meeting in the church lounge on Dec 11 th at
Daily Prayer Reminder for use with the Directory
of Congregation for December is available today.
Directory of Congregation 2015 I am currently
working on next year’s Directory and would like to have
all additions/amendments and photos by the end of
November please. Even once I have all the details there
is still a lot of work needed to get it finalised before
going to print. This means you have just 2 weeks to let
me have any additions/amendments and photos. If you
have recently joined us I do need your details so they can
be included. If you have moved this year or are in the
process of moving I need to know so your address can be
amended. It is very difficult to try and catch everyone
on a Sunday so I do need you to help me with this. Any
updated photos would also be appreciated! You can
email details and photos to me or to the church office.
Thank you. Christine Dove
