Thank you to all those who generously donate to enable us to continue sending an impressive amount of fairly traded goods to the Foodshed. As well as financial donations you can support this project in other ways : by prayer for all the Foodshed volunteers including Zac who collects our contributions week by week and for the families whom they serve. The FairTrade stall is still open for personal orders and all these purchases make a small profit so we can buy more goods for the Foodshed. For more details please contact David on 01438721942 or firstname.lastname@example.org

You can see the reading plan we're following below... and do share any pics or thoughts as you go #advent #bunyanbaptistchurch

We finished our exploration of the Prayer Course in last Sunday's service, but we haven't finished with prayer!! There are still some excellent resources to help us develop our prayer life that are definitely worth exploring in the section on the Prayer Course website called "The Toolshed":
Why not take a look?
