Christmas meal – update

A Christmas meal has been booked for Tuesday 10 December at The Miller (near the garden centre on the way to Great Doddington) for 7.30 pm. The cost of the two course meal is £17.95.  Click here for the menu.  A deposit of £10 is required for each person to secure your place.  I need final numbers on 24 November with deposits and menu choices as I need to confirm numbers and menu choices with The Miller.  Full payment will need to paid by 1 December please.  Thank you.  Heidi

Carol singing

Everyone is welcome to join in Gleneagles Church street carol singing and the giving out of sweets and a Christmas booklet.  You don’t need to be a fab songster, just come along and enjoy yourself.  On Saturday 14 December – meet at the corner of Crawley Avenue and Blaydon Walk at 4.50 pm.   Afterwards we will have mince pies and mulled wine at a venue to be arranged.

Help needed
(1)  Coffee rota

We need someone to join the rota to help with serving coffee after church. There are lots of volunteers so you only need to be available every 10 weeks. Please let Elizabeth know on if you can help.  Thank you.

(2)  Foodbank

It would be really helpful if someone could deliver foodbank donations for the next few weeks whilst I recover from my hip surgery.  Gordon may not be in church every week so the items will build up if no one collects and takes them down there.  It is only temporary for about 6 weeks or so.  Many thanks.

Shoebox Appeal

Next Sunday is the last day that we can collect from church.

Alternatively, if you would like to take your box to a collection point, the nearest one is Rushden Mission Church, Wellingborough Road, Rushden.
Please remember to include your donation for shipping costs, or your printed barcode if you have donated online.  By donating online you will receive an update on where your box was given to a child.
Also please note that from this year, because of a change in importation regulations, NO sweets of any kind can be included in the boxes, and please NO liquids, not even toothpaste.
Thank you again for choosing this way to spread God’s love at Christmas time.
