BHC is planning on running an Alpha Course in the New Year – seems like an age away, but there are only 72 sleeps until Christmas! There will be opportunities for all kinds of involvement, whatever you feel comfortable and capable of committing to: praying regularly, providing food, helping in a group, setting up, clearing up, providing music, marketing skills, leaflet drops, whatever, there’ll be a role for you! So, if you’re interested in helping out do let Paul Ridsdale-Smith know, on And of course, do start to think about who you will invite to come.

Calling all singers! We have some choir rehearsals coming up, with plans to lead worship at the Classic service on the First Sunday of Advent (2/12) as well as preparing for the carol service. The next couple of rehearsals are 4/11, 18/11 and 25/11, in the main church, 11.30-12.30. We would love to have you join us whether you have sung with the choir before or not (whilst preferred, you don’t have to be able to attend all rehearsals). Please contact Jenna for more information. Hope to see you there!

We’re looking for 2-4 great people to help the Busbridge Church reordering team get things organised. Speak to Frances Shaw, David Mace, Andy Spencer, Ian White or Simon Taylor to join the team. Thank you to the 2 people who stepped forward on the Away Day.

For the ladies, we have one of our popular Evening of Yumminess events on Friday, 19th October at Annie's home. A great opportunity to invite along your friends. A free event - we just ask you to bring a bottle or dessert or cake. A great way to get to know other ladies in the church and/or to invite along non church friends for a fun evening with lots of scrummy puds! Email Nicky on to let us know you are coming and for the venue address.
