Operation Christmas Child
On Sunday 4 November we shall be compiling the Christmas Shoeboxes. Christine will share with us which items are needed to fill the boxes.
We're still looking for a volunteer to push Margaret, in her wheelchair, to Langstone on Tuesday mornings, for Coffee Break, from her home at Osprey Court. Please speak to Caroline if you can help.
The joint Guest Dinner, with Eastney Evangelical Church, will be held at 6pm Sunday 11 November. The shopping will be delivered on Saturday 10 November and Mary is looking forward to hearing from volunteers to help unpack the shopping, organise the kitchen and assist with food preparation.
Please continue to place food items in the wooden trunk - no biscuits or cakes please. Suggested items - UHT milk, long-life juice, tinned vegetables, tinned tomatoes, tinned meat and fish, tinned fruit, cartons or tins of custard, baked beans, washing up liquid, dog food, cat food, jars of jam and toiletries.

This citywide initiative next meets for prayer at 7pm Tuesday 23 October at St George's Church, Portsea starting with tea, coffee and cake.
Pure Ground Matters
A private party is being held at Pure Ground on the evening of Saturday 24 November. If you are able to volunteer to help clear up, in the evening, or assisting with food preparation, during the day, please speak to Tony or Mary.
