communion - 026 October is World Communion Sunday, and we will be sharing with the Upper Riccarton and St Stephens Methodist congregations at the Upper Riccarton Methodist Church (3 Brake Street, cnr Brake Street and Yaldhurst Road) at 10.00am – a change of both venue and  time.  The service will be led by Rev Jo Durrant, and there will be a cup of tea or coffee to follow.

It is also Conference Sunday, and Mary, Digby and Sue will be away in Auckland until about Wednesday evening – Mary and Digby representing Durham Street, Sue representing Beckenham.

And – this Sunday is also the Sunday when we can give our gift – of cash or a personal cheque – to the Gilberthorpe School Breakfast Programme, during the service.  Just pop it into an envelope labelled “Gilberthorpe School” and drop into the offertory plate.  All of the children at the School belong to its Breakfast Club, and they very much appreciate our assistance with and support of this programme.
