Our next Engage Evening
is on October 21st at 7pm
We shall be watching an interview of J.John in conversation with Phil Cooke.

An internationally known writer and speaker, Phil has produced media programming in nearly 50 countries around the world. In the process, he has been shot at, survived two military coups, fallen out of a helicopter, and in Africa, been threatened with prison. And during that time – through his company Cooke Pictures in Burbank, California – he’s helped some of the largest nonprofit organisations and leaders in the world use the media to tell their story in a changing, disrupted culture.
All welcome

Coln River Group
Annual Memorial (All Souls) Service

On Sunday, 4th November at 3pm in the afternoon we shall be holding our annual memorial service. This will be at the Coln River Community Church. The service will provide a quiet and reflective time in which loved ones who have died can be remembered by name and thanks can be given to God for them.

During the service we shall be reading out a list of names of those you would like us to remember. We shall be inviting by letter those whom we know who have experienced bereavement during since last year, but this is a broad invitation to anyone who would find this helpful, the person remembered may be a relative or friend. The person can be remembered by name whether or not you are able to come to the service, although we hope that the service will be helpful to all who do come. There will be light refreshments after the service.

If you would like your loved one mentioned by name please contact Administrator, Lindsey Crane, and let her know. It would be helpful to have both your name as well as the name of the person you wish to be remembered. You can speak to her on 01242 820404 on Tuesday mornings, or leave a message on that answerphone, or if you would prefer, email her  Colin Randall
