On Sunday November 5th we celebrate All Saints
Everyone needs encouragement, and at this time in our Church's journey we need it as much as ever. Of course our Lord Jesus himself encourages us, and the written word, the Bible, is full of encouragements for Christians. But on Sunday 5th November we are given a very special reminder of an encouragement which is always present, but often forgotten. The letter to the Hebrews reminds us of this source of encouragement- ‘a cloud of witnesses' Hebrews chapter 12 verse 1 (page 1008 of the Church Bibles). This assemblage of women and men who have been through what we go through (and often worse stuff), surround us, Hebrews says- an invisible throng or cloud of witnesses who witness to the grace and the power of God in his son Jesus. In chapter 11 of Hebrews, (pages 1007-1008) the author lists some of these great men and women of God- and what stories they have to tell of how their trust in Him was rewarded!
It is worth quoting in full Hebrews 12: 1:
‘Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the founder and perfecter of our faith'
New for 2017 - Jam Tots !
We have launched a new group for pre-school children and their parents and carers on Fridays. The activities begin at 10 a.m. in the Church,Centre (attached to the Church) for an hour of play, music and story-time, all with a Christian flavour!
Please tell any young mums that you know about Jam Tots
and please pray for the Jam Tots team - Marjorie, Dee, Mary/and Father Andrew.

Focus on Giving
Although we have seen some exciting growth in our ministry with children, we are facing difficulty meeting our normal commitments. We have a projected shortfall of £4,000 at the end of this year. This is about our on-going commitment in Christ's service to pay our way and build the Christian community at St. Margaret's. For this reason, I am asking you to search your hearts and to respond, if you are committed to Jesus Christ and his Church, by revising your giving, with a target of 5% of income in mind.
Please prayerfully consider how you may be able to help us as together we reach out to our community with the Goodness of Jesus!
‘Each one of you must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.'
(Second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 7)
