We’re delighted that Major General Tim Cross is speaking at Busbridge , 6.30pm Sunday 7th Oct. He’ll be speaking on Christian faith and his involvement with the charity Five Talents. Major General Cross served in the Balkans where he established refugee camps and in other theatres and has said of our nation "The moral component of fighting power is about leadership, it's about ethics, it's about culture, it's about how you get people to fight and embedded within that is an element of justice and righteousness. If you lose the moral component, you lose everything. We…have gone through 30-40 years really of pretending that this moral component is not important, and that I don't need to have a Biblical foundation in my life. And I challenge that." A service to put in the diary!

We are looking for anyone who might be willing to volunteer their kitchen for use for a possible Christmas ladies’ event? We looking at running a Christmas bread making morning - trying our hand at panettone, Swedish cinnamon star bread and more.

PCC met last week and approved appointing the youth minister post - you can view it here: www.new-wine.org/find-a-job/job/1042. The PCC has also decided to reappoint to Bryan’s role plus we will also be making some changes for our great admin and office people due to the great way that the Old Rectory’s use is increasing; providing some administrative support for this. If you’d like to consider volunteering for either of these (approx. 10 hours a week each) roles then please speak to Simon Taylor.
