From Pieter

Last week’s sermon

Someone asked me to repeat here the last element of last week’s sermon.  It’s a quote from J.I. Packer’s classic book, Knowing God: ‘Call on the coming judge to be your present Saviour.’


This is the first winter that food banks in our country need to provide over 1 million emergency food parcels!  They are asking: ‘If you are in a position to help this Christmas, please donate today.  Your gift could help provide food, essentials and advice.’

Christmas preparations

At Renew 88 we are planning a Christmas party on Monday 11 December.  You are all very welcome, also when you don’t normally attend.

Hetty and I will also open Renew 88 on Christmas Day in the afternoon.  You can take this opportunity into account when planning your day.  If you are thinking of coming, do let us know.  Ideas for activities are very welcome.

Carol singing

I hope that the next generation can join us to sing carols, for which we have various opportunities this year:

  • TODAY at 2.15pm at Mizens Railway
  • Saturday 16 December at 11.00am at Knaphill High Street near the war memorial
  • Wednesday 20 December at 7.30 in the Garibaldi pub on the High Street
