A WORD OF THANKS
to my family and friends at Seedfield. I have been totally overwhelmed by the cards and messages of support to myself and Janet during my recent transplant and (slow) recovery. I know that many people have been praying for me (4 churches that I know of) and the result was a successful operation. I am hoping to be back in circulation very soon.
In His Service,
Ian McKernan

REQUEST FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT FROM JULIUS NDHALA
During the last year we have received three separate requests for funding from Julius to support different projects in Uganda. Church Council took advice from our treasurer and it was agreed that we could not keep providing support of this kind from Church funds. However, if someone would like to co-ordinate fund raising events for these requests then we could see up a separate fund to send money to Julius. If you feel called to this, then please see Paul Vipond or Brian Sharples.

CHRISTIAN STALL ON BURY MARKET
Just to draw your attention to a new venture which will be opening on 10th November on the market. A family of Syrian refugee Christians are launching their own business selling Arabic food. There is further information on the notice board so let’s support this family who have managed to get away from the horrors that are continuing in Syria. And if you have never tried Arabic food then now is the time to get to know the family and the tastes they will be offering.
