Carols for Willen

 By Nicola Andrews

 

God loves a cheerful giver and there were plenty of generous people around when Grace Church collected for Willen Hospice last week. About 20 of us gathered at the Kingston Centre to sing carols and collect for this great local charity. Those with collecting buckets were also able to give out invitations to our upcoming Christmas services [next Christmas service is 4pm, Sunday 23/12/12, Middleton Primary School].

It was amazing how seeing the hospice’s name encouraged so many passers-by to open up and share their stories of how the dedicated staff there had cared for their friends and relatives. Although enthusiastic amateurs, we noticed with delight the impact that our carolling had on various shoppers, who left Tesco singing or whistling along! Many commented on how lovely it was to hear ‘live’ carols.

Thought for the week

 By Tony Villiers

‘All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart.’

Proverbs 21:2

Often we justify our actions with subtle reasoning, but we must remember that God knows our real motives! Let’s view ourselves as God sees us – with truth and grace.

Toybox

 By Tony Villiers

I’ve just been reading the Christmas newsletter from the good people at Toybox. What an incredible work they do with street children in Latin America. At this time they are looking to equip their team working with homeless children in San Salvador. You can read more about their work at www.toybox.org.uk. I encourage you to think seriously about supporting this excellent work with a donation in time for Christmas.
