Carols at Northern General-Time to sign up now!
Sorry to be so early but I need to know numbers in good time this year.
Once again we have been invited to sing carols on a few of the wards at the Northern
General Hospital. Tuesday 10th December at 6.30pm. There is a sheet to sign at the back of
church if you can join us.  Lifts can be provided. Those of us who have been before find it
such a worthwhile thing to do, so do have a word if you might like to be involved but are
unsure. Jeni Fryer

Prayer of Preparation
As you prepare for worship you might like to reflect on these words.
Almighty Father,
whose will is to restore all things
in your beloved Son, the King of all:
govern the hearts and minds of those in authority,
and bring the families of the nations,
divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin,
to be subject to his just and gentle rule;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
