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 We are always very grateful to those who give flowers or money to brighten and enhance our worship area each week.  After the services the flowers are taken to members and friends and are much appreciated.

The beautiful church flowers given by Jill Harker last week were presented to Vanessa & Graham Sims and to Hayley Wentzell. 

Churches Together in Teddington: Please pray for Teddington Memorial Hospital, chaplaincy team, staff and patients. 

Circuit Prayers Please pray for Sunbury Methodist Church and Baby Basics.  Please also pray for Falkland Islands – The UK and Argentina both claim these islands. This hampers diplomatic and cultural life. Most islanders identify as Christian without a great deal of commitment to the church. Pray for renewal in the churches. 

 Traidcraft stall The stall will be held after the main service this week. Easter cards will be on sale and I am taking orders for Easter Eggs. Thanks Helen
