LOVE HUTTON - This week cards have been delivered to: Hutton Hill. Please pray for the people who live there. Pray that people may respond and contact us.

THANK YOU to those who provided food for and helped at Tea - time church and also to those who came along. We have had some good feedback - it was lovely to see new faces including a Messy Church mum and her son. We will arrange some more for next year and make sure they don't clash with Evensong.

TREDEGAR MALE VOICE CHOIR If you are able to help with setting up in Hutton Village Hall on Friday 26th October please see Chris Wilkins. A raffle will also take place - any suitable items to Chris Wilkins please.

There will be a meeting of the GIVING COMMITTEE at 11.15am after Mattins on Sunday 28th October.

ITEMS FOR THE PCC agenda and reports to Anne by 31st October please.

Please return your SHOEBOX on or by Sunday 18th November. Let's see if we can smash the 100 mark this year!

PRAYER MEETING - we have changed the day and time to make it easier for people to come together to pray. This will now take place on the 1st Thursday (1st Nov ) of the month 10am - 10.30am in church with refreshments afterwards. Do come along! Following meetings on 6th Dec and 3rd January 2019.

PRAYER REQUESTS. If you would like personal prayer on any Sunday please do make contact with Jane, Chris, Jean, Kay, Virginia, Jackie or Sue Orton, who will happily pray with you. If you would like a visit, please ring Virginia Hollis 708924 to arrange a visit.

COMPASSION CHRISTMAS APPEAL - As you will know we as a Church sponsor two children - Marc in Haiti and Abonesh in Uganda. The cost for this is £600 per year in total. In the past 36 of us have paid a minimum of £16.50 per year - total income £594 which together with additional income from some sponsors has covered the basic sponsorship plus extras for birthdays, Christmas etc. Sadly this year, for various reasons, we are down to 30 sponsors and a total income of £631.50 from which I have also provided cash gifts for both birthdays as well as the parcels which Val Harris and Margaret Payne generously make up for them. I have now received the Christmas appeal from Compassion where they ask for a suggested donation of £23.00 per child sponsored which enables them to provide a gift and a Christmas dinner for every child in their projects including Abonesh and Marc. We usually also send to our own children a (paper) gift and between £10 & £20 to buy things for themselves and their family. This means I really need to raise somewhere in the region of £80-£100 to keep up this tradition. Can I appeal to your good nature to give whatever you are able to make these childrens' Christmas a happy one and to anyone who is not currently in our 'team' please consider joining us from January on order that we can continue to support these children in God's name. Many thanks. Kay.

PLEASE PRAY FOR: Ann Coles and Pat Shaw both recovering from an operation, Diana Round and Laura Westley who are in hospital also Margaret and Joe Moore, Kath Dredge and Peter Beckett.

NEW WESTON NIGHT ASSESSMENT CENTRE opens its doors on the 1st November until the 31st March. Everything is in place for it to run at the Somewhere to Go facility on the Boulevard in Westons Town Centre. There will be: 10 beds, showers, an assessment system and a cooked breakfast in the morning. They need 3 people on a sleep rotation from 9.30pm to 6 am, then 2 people from 6am to 8am providing breakfast. At least 30 people more people to make it happen. Please join this in making the team swell with more than enough help as we love our vulnerable neighbours as best we can. Please contact Joe Heslop at the YMCA on 07891 809004 for more info. Thank you. We have a put a box in the porch (Locking) and by the font (Hutton) for donations as they desperately need new underwear (men’s medium and large size), new socks and toiletries: shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste and brushes.

MEMORIAL SERVICE this year is to be held in Hutton, 4th November at 6pm. Please add names to the sign up sheet for those you would like to be remembered at this service.

MESSY CHURCH - this is a very important part of our outreach as a church and we would love to see God do even more with the people who come along as we meet in Hutton school hall. We believe that prayer is the key to this and would like to ask if there are people who will pledge to pray for Messy Church on a very regular basis and who we could update regularly. If you would like to commit to praying then please sign the list and we will get in touch with you with more helpful information for your prayers.

PRAYER CHAIN - If you need prayer for yourself or another then there is a team of people ready to pray. For Locking, please contact Christine Sceeny phone 822331 or for Hutton Kay Cole phone 811424 and they will send out the prayer request. It would be lovely to know how the person we are praying for is getting on, or whether they still need more prayer. It is a great encouragement for us all to hear that God is answering our prayers, please send feedback to Christine or Kay. Thank you.

FAIRTRADE MUSTARD SEED COFFEE SHOP 10 - 12noon Wednesdays Hutton Village Hall. Eric and Gill 813716.

WESTON FOODBANK - Please leave any non-perishable goods in the box in the porch for Locking and by the font for Hutton. Thank you for your continued support.
