are in short supply:
Each Wednesday at 6.00pm there is a celebration of Holy Communion to which all are invited. This service, usually led by one of the retired ministers who worship at Christchurch, lasts no longer than half-an-hour, but provides an opportunity to ‘Do this in remembrance of Me’ as Jesus bids us. Those who regularly attend find this valuable time of worship and fellowship.
WEDNESDAY WELCOME is a weekly Bible Study and Fellowship held in various homes. Please contact Frank Heggs for details of venue.
Raise funds for Christchurch: do you use
Amazon? Or one of a host of other retailers? At no cost to you would you like
to raise money for Christchurch on your online purchases? (You pay no more; a
percentage of the sale value will accrue to the church.) Visit
to see how.
There is always a box in the foyer for your
donations to Gloucester’s Foodbank.
The Community Roll: This has been updated
and a new version is available. Please remember that the information contained

I hope this helps, thank you.
After a very extended break the banner
making group are planning to meet again on a regular basis.
The Prayer Lunch which has not been held over the Christmas period, will start again on Wednesday 1 February at 12.30 and on the first and third Wednesdays of each month in the Church lounge. Time is spent in prayer remembering current world and local situations, before eating a packed lunch, finishing at 1.30. Drinks are provided.
Need a Photographer?
Portraits, events, conceptual images -
whatever your photography needs, contact Daniel Tuck for a good price and
professional service. With Christmas coming up maybe a photo could make a
special gift for someone? Speak to Daniel Tuck or please take a leaflet from
the back of the church.
For some years Christchurch has had a
Prayer Chain, who are a group of people dedicated to praying for people during
difficult periods in life - illness, times of worry, etc. It is a very valuable ministry, one that can
be done at home or anywhere, with new prayer topics being passed round the
group by telephone.
It would be wonderful to have more people
involved in this ministry of prayer. If
you would like to speak to someone, you could ask any of the current prayer
chain members - Pat Dettmer, Val Stephens, David & Joan Perkins and John
& Olive Flemons, or have a word with Les.
People value prayer, so please think about being part of the prayer
