Operation Christmas Child - Shoebox Appeal: Our annual appeal for this Christian charity has started.  We are asking you to fill your own shoebox rather than bring loose items.  Flatpack shoeboxes are available in the large hall today after the service together with leaflets and packing lists and every Sunday up to 5 November. These are also available in the Church office at other times. Please put new items only in the box and do not sellotape the box closed as all boxes are checked at a checking centre, just put a rubber band round the box to keep everything secure. Boxes cost about £3 to send and if you would also like to donate this, put the money in an envelope on top of the contents in the box. All complete boxes must be handed in by Sunday 12 November. If you need any more information please see Adrian Johnston.
