NEW CREATION NEWS – MARCH 2017
“By serving you, we are serving Him”
Lent (March 1st) starts this month – a time to reflect, pray, listen to God, and review our lifestyle. Many of us will be attending Lent Courses or doing our own study. Maybe we’ll read a Christian newspaper or magazine? We stock several different ones in the shop. They bring God’s word into our everyday lives and are a wonderful way to reach our non-Christian friends.
Shrove Tuesday 28th February: come in and enjoy Penny’s wonderful pancakes and browse the Lent materials for group and individual use.
FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT – 27th February to 12th March When reading how lives are changed by Traidcraft partnering it encourages us to use what we can in the café (e.g. coffee, tea, sugar, jam), and for our personal use (re-cycled toilet rolls, kitchen rolls and paper tissues etc.). We also have ‘The Real Easter Eggs’, which are Fairtrade and the first and only chocolate Easter Eggs to mention Jesus and the events of Holy Week on the box. All sales will benefit people in this country and overseas.
Mothering Sunday March 26th. Come and see our selection of cards and gifts or bring Mum in for:
Penny’s Special for March : a slice of cake and a hot drink for £2.10
Staffing: PLEASE CAN YOU HELP? Because of family and other problems some of our Saturday helpers have had to withdraw. Please, are you able to serve in the café or the main shop on a Saturday morning between 9:30am and 1:00pm? If we are to continue serving you and our Lord on a Saturday WE DO NEED YOUR HELP!!! Please speak to Val.
Large Tables: At certain times in the year we need larger, light tables for displays. We wonder if any church or group has any light folding tables (eg.GOPAK) which we could have or borrow? Please get in touch if you can help us. Thank you.
Ongoing problems :- We know how greatly blessed we are by your support and we are very grateful to all our donors and Prayer Partners. As we mentioned last month we have more ongoing problems with the building. We do not know the kind of help that will be needed; whether practical, financial or both. Our Landlord has agreed to us finding a suitable builder. Please pray for the people who agree to undertake the work needed, that there will not be too much damage and that the Lord will make it very clear to us what we have to do. Thank you.
