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.

Church Flowers There are many spaces on the flower rota for the 
Autumn.  If you would like to give flowers please put your name

Churches Together in Teddington: Please pray for Hampton Wick Baptist Church 

The Healing Prayer Group will be meeting on Thursday 13th September - any requests for prayers, for yourself or someone you know, should be passed to Jill or Margaret. 

Circuit Prayers Please pray for East Molesey Methodist Church and Chandlers Field Primary School.  Please also pray for Chad – a landlocked country with low rainfall, drought, civil wars and poor infrastructure. Much poverty and corruption, but with some hope now that Chad has become an oil exporter. Pray for unity in the church whose divisions on tribal lines limits its witness. 

Hampton Methodist Church Bike Project. The church has become a 'Bike Hub’ what this means is they collect second-hand bikes (adult and children's) which are then donated to The Bike Project who refurbish them and donate them to refugees and asylum seekers in London. For more details please see the poster in the narthex. 

Following a recent break in at the church we would take this opportunity to remind all our church members and hall users that they must be vigilant at all times. Please do not leave outside doors open during your sessions, make sure all doors are locked shut when you leave, and check that no-one is on the premises before you go, but please do not take any risks with your own safety in doing this.  

Have you looked at the Church Garden recently? We have been awarded A Silver Award by Richmond in Bloom committee. Our thanks go to those who do the weeding, trimming, planting and watering, especially Brian and Judith, so that our garden can be admired by us and passers-by. 

Contributions for Focus by Tuesday 2nd October.  It's that time again to think about items for the next edition of the Focus newsletter - e.g. articles, photos, news about the church or from community users, details of recent or upcoming events, puzzles, jokes, etc.  With the new data protection laws, if you send photos of people, make sure you have their consent for them to be included.  Please send your contributions to Helen Benson at focus@teddingtonmethodistchurch.org.uk 

JMA – The new JMA year has begun! New contributors and collectors are always welcome. If your child would like to start collecting (this can begin in a very simple way by them being given a collecting tin to collect at church and at home), or if you would like to start contributing to the charity, a small amount each week, please speak to Sarah Waine. My apologies to our existing collectors. Although I have requested new collection books these haven’t yet been sent out. I will be giving them out as soon as I have them – Sarah.
