General Information & News 

Visitors and those new to Teddington Methodist Church A leaflet “Teddington Methodist Church – A Warm Welcome for the Whole Community” is available in the narthex. We welcome anybody who may wish to become a member of TMC. 

Prayer requests If you have someone you would like prayers for, please write the details on the sheets on the table at the back of the church. Details will be given out in the service. 

Churches Together in Teddington: Please pray for Teddington Methodist Church 

Circuit Prayers: Please pray for Hampton Methodist Church and the Ladies’ Guild.  Please also pray for Hungary – after 1000 years of Christianity, answers to life’s problems are sought in materialism and pleasure.  Church doesn’t affect society.  Pray for a new spirit of witness and active service.  Pray for unity, trust and co-operation between churches. 

ALL WE CAN HARVEST BAHAMAS HURRICANE APPEAL Next week is our Harvest Service.  As we have at TMC for some years, the gifts will go to Whitechapel Mission and the cash collection will be for All We Can. The needs are enormous and this year we are also asked to give to the All We Can Bahamas Hurricane Appeal.  If you would like to respond to that separately please see one of the stewards or Robert Mortimer. Our ability to give is in itself a gift from God and be assured that all you give will be used well. 

The new group for 11-18-year-olds "The Hangout" met on Sunday at 5:30 - 7 at Hanworth Methodist Church and six young people from across the Circuit attended a Bible Study on Daniel led by Bron with snacks and conversation.  Vicci was also there but her largest contribution was trying to eat more of the snacks than the youngsters!  It was agreed that there will be about 45 minutes of Bible Study and youth club type activities with snacks on the second Sunday of every month and that Bron and Vicci will lead until Vicci goes on Sabbatical in February, when we will hope to have brought someone else on to the team.  Do please encourage all your young people, whether regular or occasional attenders, to come and give it a try out.
