General Notices

Please remember in your prayers – anyone who is going through a time of sadness, anxiety or undergoing medical treatment.

The October hymn is – StF 612 – God give us life.

Royston Fringe - this year was the best ever, with new ideas, and a greater footfall with new faces visiting.  At the time of writing, with reserves held for outstanding costs, we are showing a profit of around £1300 (including the Cambridge Clarinet Choir already announced). This is exceptional and due to the higher attendance, and generous donations from performers and others. This effort, for which many thanks go to many people, will go to the Refurbishment Project.

There will be no Bible Appreciation on the following dates: Tuesday 15th October, 29th October (due to Holiday Club), or 12th November.

 

Christmas Begins Here - with the Cambridge Salvation Army Band at West Road Cambridge on Sunday December 1st 6.30pm.  Tickets £12 (to be confirmed). This year they have a guest singer, Faryl Smith.  Valerie and I will be going. Will anyone join us? We travel by car share as before. Let me know by October 31st so that I can make a priority booking. Brian Norwood 01763 241066.

 

cte_logo_largeCHURCHES TOGETHER IN ROYSTON AND DISTRICT - Light Party - Thursday 31st October at the Coombes Centre 5.30–7:00pm

We are once again running the Light Party as a Christian alternative to Halloween. The event has continued to grow year on year and many children look forward to the fun evening of games, craft, food and music. As always the party cannot happen without a band of willing volunteers and we are very grateful for those who have served in this way in the past.  We again need volunteers this year, so please see the sign-up sheet on the notice board with a list of volunteering opportunities. Please be aware that we need to know who will be coming to help from your Church in advance. Also we need to be assured that those who will be working directly with children on the evening are approved by your Church to do this according to your Safeguarding procedures. We would be grateful for any donations of individually wrapped sweets for the children’s goody bags, so if you are able to collect some that would be great. Please pass any sweets to Dave Aggett. You can also contact the organiser of the event directly to offer to help.  Helen Tobiss  lightparty@ct-royston.org.uk  Tel 01763 243774

 

Prayer Course - We will be holding a series of Bible studies on the topic of prayer this term. We will be following the Lord's Prayer, using resources and short videos from the prayer course (available at https://prayercourse.org/ ). The six studies will be on the first and third Thursdays of October, November and December, from 7.30pm to 8.45pm in the Eldon Room. All are welcome. Any queries: call 01763 449 126 or email peterhcharlton@gmail.com
