LONDON BRIDGES WALK

 

The last information we have is that Bishop Karen completed her 24k walk across sixteen London bridges, raising money for Routes to Roots.   The target of £2,000 has not quite been reached so there is still time to make a contribution.

 

BIBLE AS POETRY

 

It arrived in my e-mail a bit late, I reckon, but Bible Society wishes churches to take part in National Poetry Day on October 4th by suggesting writers enter their competition on the theme of “change” inspired by a theme, verse or story in the Bible.    Poetry in any form but no longer than a thousand words should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before midday on October 3rd. 

 

BAPTIST PIONEER FOR HAMWORTHY

 

Via the News from Poole Missional Communities we are sad to pass on the information that the community of Hill Street Baptist Church made the recently difficult decision to close.   However, this is proving a seed of a new beginning for Baptist ministry in the area with the appointment of a part-time pioneer for Hamworthy.   So we welcome John Good, an associate Minister from Luton who was working before that as a youth minister in Southampton.   His family includes wife Mim and two boys, and it is expected that they will be moving to Poole in late October if all goes well.      

 

CHRISTMAS IS COMING ON THE QUAY

 

“The Quay Nativity” is a presentation hosted by St James’ Church in Poole and auditions have been held for parts in a play beginning on the Quay and moving to the church.   Also needed will be volunteers to help with stewarding, refreshments and costumes to say nothing of those prepared to help with carol singing.   It is intended that performances will be on Saturday, December 8th at 4 and 6 p.m.
