General Information & News

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 Thank you to Jill Harker who gave the flowers this week and if you would like to give flowers at church please sign the flower list in the Narthex or speak to Gill Jackson. 

Churches Together in Teddington: Please pray for St Mary with St Alban Church 

Circuit Prayers: Please pray for East Molesey Methodist Church and the Pastoral Team.  Please also pray for Jamaica – well-resourced churches, but only a minority of Christians attend.  Drugs, violence crime, rape and domestic abuse are widespread.  Pray for courage and determination to turn the country back to God. 

Request for knitters! Once again, we are planning to 'release ' a host of knitted and crocheted angels in and around the church 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. 

Change for Good at Wandsworth Prison was the project we supported at the Christmas Fair and the Barn Dance. Thank you to Barrie Bullimore who donated his fee for the Barn Dance. We raised £340 at the Fair and £158 at the Barn Dance, making at total of £498. 

Gift Day service on 1st December Gifts of canned or dried food, toiletries and clothing plus the loose cash in the collection will be sent to support the work of Whitechapel Mission. At 10am, there is breakfast before the Gift Service, when we will also be collecting cash for White Chapel Mission in London 

Christmas Day at Elleray Hall Churches Together in Teddington are providing lunch for the elderly and lonely on Christmas Day. Volunteers, especially drivers to collect people and take them home are needed. Contact Alfie Evans for details.
