PRAYER MEETING – Next Week
We will meet in the Vestibule from 12.30pm to 1.00pm. Prayer is simply having a conversation with God and silence is okay. Please join us.

Church Charities 2016
Please will you give serious thought to which charity Christ Church can support in 2016. If you have a charity you would like to nominate then bring along details to present at the AGM on Sunday 31st January.
Offertory envelopes are now being distributed to all who had one last year. If you would like to join the envelope giving scheme please speak to Brian or Peter.
If you join the envelope giving scheme you will be provided with a box of envelopes with one envelope for each week. You can then put your money in the envelope, and the envelope into the collection.
The envelope scheme provides two key benefits:-
It helps you, the giver, to keep track of your donations by providing a gift envelope for each week through the tax year from April to March.
If you use Gift Aid, the envelope scheme enables your gifts to be identified and recorded during the year against your envelope number, which provides the records needed for the tax reclaim.
Alternatively you can set up a weekly, monthly or quarterly standing order and put an empty envelope in the collection plate if you wish.
