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 Baptist Church 

Circuit Prayers Please pray for East Molesey Methodist Church and the Children’s Workshop.  Please also pray for Cote d’Ivoire –Severely damaged by civil war in 2011. Despite instability, it is the world’s largest exporter of cocoa beans. Catholics and Methodists are the largest churches. Pray against corruption, and for unity and nation building. 

Once again, we are planning to 'release ' a host of knitted and crocheted angels around the churches in the circuit during Advent which people can take home to decorate their trees. The knitting and crochet patterns can be found on the links page of the church website or speak to Sarah or Denise who will be able to print a pattern out for you. 

LOOKING FOR CHRISTMAS PRESENT IDEAS Instead of buying someone a box of chocolates or a pair of socks (they probably don't need) why not make a real difference in someone's life and give £10 to provide a safe clean water supply to a family in Zimbabwe or £24 to enable a teenage mother in Malawi to return to school and learn the vital skills of reading, writing and arithmetic. Pick up one of the All We Can leaflets at church today and make a real Christmas gift this year. Your gift can change lives.  Robert Mortimer has more details. 

Help with Sunday morning coffee. For various reasons the number of people offering to help serve coffee after the service on Sunday morning has fallen. Please consider whether you could join the regular rota. It would be no more often than once a month. If you can help please speak to Sue Morrell 

Accommodation needed. Anna, who works for Tearfund, and her husband are looking for a house to rent in the local area for the end of December. If you are able to help please contact her via our contact page.
