It has been a great concern for us all to hear of Jean
S’ recent health difficulties and we sincerely hope
and pray that now she is home (with care support)
she will begin to feel stronger and more content. We
pray also for Ken who is so involved in her 24 hour
It was good to see Olwen M at our Songs of Praise

At the AGM meeting in OCT/NOV we will be
looking to appoint/reappoint deacons. All 3
current deacons are coming to the end of
their terms of office, It is not yet clear
whether all will stand for re-election or not.
In any case 3 is the bare minimum, so we
would like to appoint more deacons. WE
NOW, and seeking God’s direction as to who
we should be calling to serve Him in this
important way. Our rules state that deacons
must be over 18 and have been a church
member for 1 year. There is a process to
follow for making nominations which Val will
explain nearer the time.
We are currently without the services of a paid cleaner.
Please bear this in mind if you see a job that needs doing
– every little helps. Thanks to those who help frequently.
Also please think of anyone reliable and professional to
take on these duties for us.
GDPR new rules- Though it is probably overworrying
about something aimed at commercial
companies – we do need to make sure we look after
your personal details we hold and share. So you may
notice a change in Messenger editorial style –
especially for the LBC Web page and you may be asked
for your consent at some stage soon.
Apologies for late publication of Messenger this
month due to multiple IT problems!
