Archive for November, 2010



This outreach initiative will start from the beginning of November 2010, led by a small team from one of the house groups.

We aim to cover at least two roads in the Langdon Hills parish every month, by delivering a leaflet, attached to an addressed envelope, to each house in those roads.

The leaflet informs that prayers will be said that month for all the people in that road and in addition, personal prayers may be requested by way of the addressed envelope or by using the dedicated email address printed on the leaflet.

The email site will be accessed daily and all prayer requests whether written or via the web will be handled confidentially within the prayer group.

Our email is:

Operation Christmas Child 2010

Can you spare £2.50 and an old shoe box? If the answer is YES then please pick up a leaflet from St Mary’s or St John’s.

I am co-ordinating a collection of shoebox gifts for the Samaritans Purse charity. The filled boxes will be distributed to needy children all around the world.

We are all so fortunate. Our houses are warm and full of clothes and food. Your precious gift may be the only one that a child receives this Christmas so please give generously.

Please leave your filled box at St John’s Church between 3rd and 18th November.
Thank you, Jill Hurley.

Memorial Service

Sunday 7 November is the annual memorial Service at St Mary’s Church, 3.00 pm.

The service gives people an opportunity to remember departed loved ones. Fill in a request card on arrival to have a name read out in the service.
