Mission Month of October:

The National Day of Prayer for Children takes place this coming Friday, 14th October.

Organised by the Society for Missionary Children, the occasion gives children a good opportunity to think of those children who are less fortunate, to pray for those less fortunate and to share with those less fortunate.   Children love to know that they are important members of a global circle of praying, sharing and caring, in this, the Mission Month of October. They have generous hearts, missionary hearts, and so are open to the idea of including other little children in their thoughts. For further information on the Society of Missionary Children please visit


All notices for the Newsletter to be left in before 5.00p.m. on Thursdays please.
