God's Great Escape
In the month of September our main Sunday service will include sermons on the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible. This is the story of how God's people found themselves in a terrible mess which they could not escape from by themselves, and how God raised up Moses to lead them out of slavery and set them on a journey to the land he promised them. The gospel message is that all human beings, when left to ourselves, find ourselves in a mess- in a form of spiritual slavery so strong that we cannot escape it without help. God raised up Jesus, his son, to lead us out of this mess and to set us on a journey to true freedom. As we read Exodus, we find some of the things which hinder us on that journey, and the ways in which the Lord provides for those whom he calls ‘according to his purpose' (see Romans chapter 8 verse 28).
Join us on Sunday mornings in September to discover more about 'God's Great Escape!'
September 3rd God demands your attention! (Exodus chapter 3 verses 1-15)
September 10th The cost of freedom (Exodus chapter 12 verses 1-14)

A Service for the Sick and Housebound.
On Thursday 7th September we have a service at 3 p.m. for people who are ill or who cannot usually get to church. Lifts can be arranged by calling Martin on 01753 651276. The service is a Eucharist lasting about half an hour. During the service there is the opportunity for prayer, the laying-on of hands and anointing for God's healing.
After the service there is a nice tea with delicious cakes!
You are welcome to bring friends and neighbours!
New for September - Jam Tots!
We are launching a new group for pre-school children and their parents and carers on Fridays, starting on September 15th. The activity will 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! We will be advertising this new activity around Iver Heath but please tell any young mums that you know about Jam Tots
and please pray for the Jam Tots team - Marjorie, Dee, Mary and Fr Andrew.

‘From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise'
(Psalm 8 verse 2)
and don't forget the Sponsored Walk September 2nd
A riverside walk from old Windsor to Runnymede - a 3-hour round trip (including refreshment break) approximately 4.5 miles. We will be starting at 10 a.m. from the car park of the ‘The Bells of Ouzely', Straight Rd, Old Windsor.
Further details and sponsorship forms are available from the organiser, Eileen Hemsworth.
Come and join us for a fun fund-raiser!
A Sound Decision!
St Margaret's Church Council (PCC) has approved a plan to install a new state-of-the-art sound system in
the Church building. We hope the work will be done in September or October by the latest.
The new system was demonstrated in the Church one evening in July and will provide a much better resource
for all kinds of services, activities, weddings and funeral services.
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. But this is not just about 2016, it 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)
