Election of Deacons

 An election of Deacons will be held at the Fellowship Meeting on 17 November. David, Jackie and Martin's current terms of office finish this year. They have all indicated that they are willing to serve for a further three years, but they do need to be re-nominated and re-elected. Nominations, which must be in writing and signed by 2 church members, must be given to me by Sunday 3 November. Please let me know if you have any questions about the election. 

Thanks. Martin'


The Angel Tree

For the last few years our Church has support the work of Angel Tree.  For those new to the church this is what Angel Tree is:-


Angel Tree gives prisoners the opportunity to send a Christmas present to their children. There are around 200,000 children in England & Wales with a parent in prison. Local Prison Volunteers work with local churches & prison chaplains to buy, wrap & deliver the presents. Each gift is sent as though it is from the parent, with a personal message for the child. They can also include an age-appropriate Christian story book.

 As a church we have agreed to send a minimum of 10 gifts, each worth approx £10. I will be sent a list of children, their names, ages & interests, & will arrange the buying  of the gifts. Members of the fellowship can either give me a contribution  or offer to buy the gift themselves.  These will then be taken to Dronfield  Baptist Church where  they will be wrapped  & sent off. We have done this for the past 4 years & feel is it worthwhile. Please see me if you need any more information or are willing to help.

Thank you   Tricia




We thank Martin and Tricia for all the hard work they have put in to the garden’s at the front of the church.  The beds are looking good and bulbs have been planted for next year.  Thank you.


Items for Prayer

For the Leadership team as they work together for the church, may they know the Lord leading and guiding them.

Having agreed the application for Home Mission Funding at the last Fellowship Meeting it has now been sent to the Yorkshire Baptist Association for consideration on October 7th.  Please pray.

For Briony Gilchrist having an eye operation in early October and for Hannah Ramsden awaiting an ear operation, may they and their families know God’s peace surrounding them at this time.

For Howard

For Jhonnar as he submits his Visa application this week to return and work at the Oakes next month may everything go smoothly and we look forward to seeing Jhonnar with us again shortly.

For the new team at the Oakes may they settle in, form special friendships and start working together as a team.  For Johnny and others leading them.

For the Light Party at the end of the month that a good number of children will attend.


Pause for Thought.

Psalm 119:28

“Storing up God’s work in our memory banks is wise.  We never know what lies around the corner, and God’s word is like a hotline into his own heart, confirming that he is with us in our sorrows as he is in our joys, weeping with us, holding us close, whether or not we understand what is going on.  The word of God has the power to revive and restore.”   Michele D. Morrison  Day by Day with God.
