Thank you to those who have supported our ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ initiative. Please bring completed reverse calendars to the Office, and we will donate it to the Elmbridge Food bank and Joel Homeless shelter.
As we start to put away the Christmas decorations why not take a moment to consider (again) why Jesus came? What do you understand when you hear that Jesus came to make us right with God? Why is that ‘good news’? If you have questions why not have chat over a drink with me (Sarb)? Don’t let 2019 slip away without getting the answers to your questions – what do you have to lose?
If you have any unwanted good quality items (ideally which cost £50+ when new) please drop them in to the Office. I will collect them at the end of January and put them on eBay to raise church funds. Electrical items MUST be in full working order, and no printers please. Clothing should be nearly new, designer label or luxury fabric (eg: silk or cashmere). Absolutely no bric a brac, crockery or cutlery please. Many thanks - Amanda.
There is no official gardening day during January. The next one will be Saturday, February 9th9-12 noon. Tools provided, and tea/coffee. Everyone is welcome, but in February we will be looking especially for strong people to help with the annual muck-spreading work. Happy New Year to All. Mary.
Please note there is no bible study this week (8th January).

Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to make our Christmas services and events a success. On behalf of Sarb, myself, and the staff team at St. Nicholas’, may we wish you a very happy Christmas, and a joyful New Year. God Bless, Andrew.
What questions might your friends ask you about your faith? Might they be the same ones you have? Why not chat with Sarb about them over a coffee/pint/glass of wine??
The next Tuesday Lunch will be on Tuesday 15th January. We won’t be going to the Swan, but having all our lunches in the church hall.
A huge ‘thank you’ to the ladies who worked so hard to make the Christmas Tuesday Lunch such a lovely occasion. The food was amazing!
