SUNDAY 3rd DECEMBER 2017
ADVENT SUNDAY

A Prayer for Advent

(Advent Sunday marks the beginning of the Christian New Year - a time for a new beginning. Perhaps you want to make this prayer your own)

“Lord Jesus our Saviour, the  One who is come,
We come to you now.
Our hearts are cold;
Lord, warm them by your selfless love.
Our hearts are sinful;
Cleanse them with your precious blood.
Our hearts are weak;
Strengthen them with you joyous Spirit.
Our hearts are empty;
Fill them with your divine presence.
Come, Emmanuel:
Enter our lives,
Possess them always
And only for Yourself.”

Well done all who contributed to, helped with, and supported Otterburn Christmas Coffee Morning on Saturday. The magnificent sum of £544.50 was raised towards Church expenses.

Reverse Advent Calendar 2017”
To support the work of The People’s Kitchen, who offer food, friendship and futures to homeless and vulnerable people in Newcastle. As it suggests a reverse advent calendar involves putting something into a bag or box rather than taking something out- for example items like non perishable foods such as tinned soups and meats, tea coffee drinking chocolate, toiletries or items of clothing such as hats gloves and (new) socks.
This December there will be collection points around Elsdon - suitably festive cardboard boxes can be found in St Cuthbert’s Church, The Bird in Bush and my garden shed (opposite the Bird in Bush access through the gate by the telephone box and defibrillator!)
Alternatively if you would like to make a donation - £5.00
(made online) can provide a Christmas dinner. For more information www.peopleskitchen.co.uk I hope you can help- even a few items can make a huge difference.
Many thanks -Maureen Walton”

REDESDALE RITES
THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IN


SUNDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2017



After all the hype about ‘Black Friday’ maybe you want to register a protest against all the consumerism which characterises the run up to Christmas. Here is an idea proposed by Maureen Walton of Elsdon -
‘The Reverse Advent Calendar’.

“Reverse Advent Calendar 2017 -To support the work of The Peoples’ Kitchen, who offer food, friendship and futures to homeless and vulnerable people in Newcastle. As it suggests a reverse advent calendar involves putting something into a bag or box rather than taking something out- for example items like non perishable foods such as tinned soups and meats, tea coffee drinking chocolate, toiletries or items of clothing such as hats gloves and (new) socks.
