Gift/Toy service.

We did not plan for a specific Sunday this year (My fault, sorry) so we are asking for donations this week and next week to go to Parkway Methodist Church.  They will then buy age-appropriate gifts for needy families in Bristol which have been highlighted by social services.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. Val

To all the lovely church members at Badminton Road.

What a lovely surprise I had on Monday when so many turned up to say thank you to me for my 50 years guiding at Badminton Road. I don’t know where the years have gone! Also thank you for the lovely cards, flowers and presents. I am not disappearing for good and once Terry has had both hips replaced I will be able to help out at church events. Thank you all for the support and love I have received during the 50 years. Jackie Meech

Visit to Ruth Eagle:

Susan Fenton and I (Susanne Old ) visited Ruth Eagle a week  ago. My husband very kindly took us. Ruth is in Kingswood Court Nursing Home. She has been in there for a couple of weeks so really is still settling in. She was pleased to see us but I believe she was feeling tired. Her neighbour had been into visit her earlier in the day. Her son Robert came down from Nottingham to visit her. Her other son Tim is due to visit too.  I am sure that Ruth would be delighted to see any of her friends, who were able to visit her. I know that Val and Roger plan to take Susan next time.  Susanne Old

There is a large red robin Christmas card for the congregation to write their greetings to each other which is free and helps save the planet as we are all being eco-friendly and jolly at the same time. It will be on the information table all of December. Heather
