HARVEST COLLECTION – Thank You

Thank you to all who contributed to the harvest collection for ‘Somewhere To Go’ and ‘Weston Food Bank’ we were pleased to be able to hand over five boxes to each of these fantastic causes!

 

 

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING – Thank You

Another thank you to all who supported our Macmillan coffee morning which raised £50 for Macmillan Cancer Care.

 

NEW STOCK ARRIVES

It has again been an exciting month for us with new stock arriving almost daily, including Christmas cards, books, CD’s, DVD’s and gifts. We now also have ‘Life’ Gift vouchers available, redeemable in store. We are still able to take your orders for anything we don’t have in stock (subject to availability).

Remember we are able to post your orders to you at a small extra cost if you find it difficult to get into the shop.

 

WOULD YOU LIKE A VISIT FROM LIFE?

We would like to be able to come along and visit with you at your church, to talk about the ministry at Life. Who comes? What happens? Why? Feel free to call or email to arrange for one of the team to visit.

 

WHAT’S ON IN YOUR CHURCH?

We would love to hear from you, what’s on in your church, so that we can advertise special events and regular services within the shop. We often have people ask us for local church information, for example where they can find an Alpha course, or if they’re holidaying here, where they can find a local church which suits them. We would love to be able to point people in the direction of your church.

 

LIFE GOES ON THE ROAD

Are you based out of town? Do you run any children’s, young people’s clubs, Toddler group, Pre-school, Ladies or Gents fellowships, coffee mornings?

We are looking for venues to take life on the road. We want to be able to offer a service to churches, both in Weston and further afield where we could visit your coffee morning or church group with a box of books, cards etc which would be available to browse and place orders over a cup of coffee or tea, then we can drop or post your orders to you when they come in. If your church or group would be interested in this service please get in touch and we will arrange a convenient time to visit. (Contact details on the front of this news sheet)

 

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY:

PRAYER MEETING AT LIFE THURSDAY 20TH OCTOBER

We are working in conjunction with Weston-super-Prayer & Praise/Churches Together to hold a prayer meeting in the shop every other month in between the Weston-super-Prayer dates. The first of these will be on Thursday 20th October 2011 at 7.30pm. We look forward to seeing you then (and hopefully before then during shop hours!)

 

FAMILY CRAFT WORKSHOPS

We are also holding three Family Craft Workshops at ‘Life’, in the run up to Christmas, with local artist Sandie Skyrme.

Glass Painted Tea light holders - Saturday 22nd October from 2-4pm

Silk painted Christmas cards - Saturday 19th November from 2-4pm

Any of these make great little Christmas gifts for family, friends or teachers! Please just let us know if you intend coming so that we can be sure to have enough equipment/ingredients for all.

 

CHILDREN’S BOOK CLUB

Our first book club ‘The Children’s Book Club’ begins on Saturday 29th October at 11am. There will be a story and a linked activity for accompanied children.

All Book club Members will receive a Membership card entitling them to 10% discount on book and Bible purchases in ‘Life’.

 

GOSPEL CENTRED FAMILY STUDY GROUP

Begins on Friday 4th November 2011 at 11am.

Bring a packed lunch, tea/coffee provided

“Many books aim to help Christian parents develop well trained, well rounded children. But in this book the focus is on whole families growing into God-knowing, Christ-confessing, grace giving, servant-hearted, mission-minded believers – adults and children together. It’s not about how the gospel fits into Christian family life, but how family life should fit into the gospel – God’s greatest purpose for the universe, achieved in Christ”

From The Gospel Centred Family by Ed Moll and Tim Chester, The Good Book Company ©2009

If you would like to be a part of this study group please email, ring or pop in to the shop to let us know you are coming. The book costs £5 but can be purchased at a 10% discount for those attending the group.


More Book Clubs coming soon!

A customer wanted a copy of 'my dear child' and was bracing themself for the cost a new book.  We had a good quality second hand copy on the shelf.

Another customer found a large hard back Bible too heavy and donated it, taking a lighter paperback copy… within hours another customer came in wanting a large hardback copy in a specific version.. and you guessed correctly… the Bible just donated was the right version!
