BMS – Stamps Support Mission
It’s hard to believe but used stamps means money for BMS. Last year the amount raised by the organisation was enough to support a mission worker in Thailand for a year! Please pass your used stamps (trimmed but leaving a border around each stamp) to Moira Ritchie who will send them off to BMS.
The February issue of the Steadfast Global news letter is available on the table. Please pick one up and pray for those brothers and sisters in the Lord who are persecuted for their faith.

All are welcome to join with us for pre-service prayer time in the dining room before the morning service at 10.10 am.
