Newsletter - September 2016

During September we, as a church, will be sending out letters to all the businesses and organisations in the village, asking if they would like us to pray for them.

In the Bible we are encouraged to pray for our queen, the government, local governments and one another. So would you like to take us up on this invitation?

Some people really struggle during the shorter days of winter. If you know of anyone in particular need, just write your request on a slip of paper and either put it in our door, 11 Mill Road, or Ellie Minney’s, 5 Roberts Street or alternatively it can be placed in the locked post box on the wall of The Little Chapel, which is checked and emptied regularly.  We don’t need to know names so it can be completely anonymous.

On September 10th we are holding a Coffee Morning from 10am - 12 noon. It is to support our denomination’s annual overseas appeal which, this year is to support ‘Jessie’s House’. This project aims to give better life chances and permanent education opportunities for orphans and children at risk in Muzondo, a small village in Zimbabwe. Please come for a chat over a coffee and some homemade cake.

On that day the Historic Churches Trust are holding their annual bike ride/walk where people are asked to visit as many churches as possible in one day, so our church will be open for people to register their call (killing 2 birds!!!??).

 

‘All is safely gathered in, ere the winter storms begin’.

Harvest time is nearly upon us. Rev Peter Ledger from Bedford will be our speaker at the Harvest Festival Service  on Sunday 2nd October at 2.30, followed by tea. We welcome everyone to come and join us.

Chapel Anniversary is on Sunday 20th November at 2.30. The speaker on this occasion is to be Mrs Linnet Smith. Tea will follow this service too.

We would like to congratulate our minister, Rev Geoffrey Lee as this year he celebrates 60 years of ordination. He started his ministry in Clyde Bank which is just north of Glasgow, moving on to a suburb of Coventry, then taking on the role of our minister here at Bozeat 15 years ago. A life time of service to God.

May we take this opportunity to thank him for all he has done for our fellowship here at TLC and the surrounding area and we pray God’s blessing on him, as he continues to serve God in this community.

 

We are sad to note the passing of Miss Gillian Dunmore. She was a member of the Methodist Church until it’s closure then transferred her membership to TLC. She has left a very generous legacy to The Little Chapel and we intend to use the money wisely.
