Next Bible Study – Trying Mondays! As Wednesday is difficult for some of our regulars, we are having our next Bible Study at Bart’s TOMORROW at 2pm. Everyone welcome.  We are working our way through Acts at the moment, but are always happy to consider other suggestions.

Hope 4 Newham We have been approached by a local organization, Hope 4 Newham who set up in Stratford Shopping Centre on a Tuesday evening to feed and help the homeless. They are in need of the following items: men's clothing (jumpers, tee shirts, track suit bottoms/jeans, hoodies, jackets, coats, socks, gloves, scarves and hats. They also take sleeping bags, yoga type mats, toiletries and cakes/biscuits and well as monetary donations. There is a collection point in the café should you have any items you’d like to donate.

Joint Service Apologies, there was an error in the newsletter last week.  The joint service with our friends at Pilgrims Way Methodist and Congregational Church is on 24th MARCH at 10.30am and not February as reported last week.  All are welcome.
