Last week we said that a brochure with vision and possibilities for worship including worship ministry and re-ordering Busbridge Church would come out this week. Following the PCC meeting, looking at the details further and after some helpful feedback after last week’s brief information, we feel it right to defer for a week so that we get the correct information out to you all, for response and discussion on Dec 2nd. There will be people available after services this Sunday (25th Nov) to informally answer immediate questions. Please speak to Rosie and Simon (Busbridge Contemp), David Mace (Busbridge Classic), Simon (6.30pm) or David Jenkins (Hambledon). There will be official Q&A sessions on Dec 9th across the Benefice.
The Alpha course (an opportunity to explore the meaning of life and the Christian faith in a relaxed environment) starts on January 9th in the Old Rectory. Please be praying and thinking about who you could invite; invitation cards will be available soon. We are holding a prayer evening for the course this coming Wednesday (28th) at 8.00pm, also in the Old Rectory. Please come and join us to pray - the course will be a life-changing event for some and we need to cover it with prayer. An hour or so of your time would be really appreciated and will make a difference!"
The Channel for Mission team would like to thank everyone at BHC for the very generous donations given to the Five Talents at Harvest last month. An incredible £2,921.25 was raised.
Church Centre Redevelopment Update: Dave Preece has been in conversation with Guildford Diocese with regards to permissions and faculties needed for the Church Centre Redevelopment. The team are working on design and cost plans to present to the PCC. For more information please speak to Dave.
Home groups are one of the ways our church family meet up midweek to grow closer together as family and closer to Christ as saviour. In 2019 we’ll look at their central place in our future, the church vision and how we live-out our calling as disciples of Jesus at BHC. If you’d like to get involved in a mid-week group please call the church office or ask a service leader about them. If you are a home group leader and you haven’t yet contacted Simon to confirm your email address please could you do so this week?
The Busbridge Contemporary service on 2nd December is going to be of the like, never seen before! All welcome to come along to the Fuse Christingle! An interactive service for the whole family, there are rumours of a different spin on a Christingle...did someone say Jaffa Cakes?!
