LENT MOVIE COURSE

Our third annual Lent movie course; this year we are looking at "Wonder Woman" starring Gal Gadot.  The superhero tale, fusing Greek mythology and the First World War may seem a strange choice for a Lent course (and perhaps the last thing some of you would choose to see at the cinema) - but there are rich pickings for discussion groups. We'll be exploring themes of gender, the nature of man's tendency to destruction; what it might mean to be a Messiah, and where we find grace in a place of violence. 

Starting Weds 21st February showing the film in it's entirety (8pm-10:05pm) (BYO popcorn and snacks) and then 4 subsequent weeks (8pm-9:30) of discussion and reflection. Meet at the church hall, bring a friend if you feel like it!

CHRISTMAS TREE COLLECTION 2018

Christmas Tree Collection








Volunteers from Kingshill Baptist Church were delighted to raise over £3000 through their annual Christmas tree collection, a mighty sum that will be appreciated by the charities they are supporting. Five teams pulled trailers throughout both Kingshill villages and Prestwood and took away resident’s trees in return for donations towards Kakunya School, Uganda and the national charity Child Bereavement UK. Several tons of fir trees were amassed for delivery for recycling over a furious five hour period, with the event helpfully coinciding with the twelfth day of Christmas. Minister Rev. Martin Hatfield was impressed by the collective energy, organisation and community spirit behind the whole venture. This was the eleventh year that the church has organised this event, with the number of households and charitable giving growing steadily during this time.



SAMARA'S AID SMILEY BAGS

Bags

A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make or fill a Smiley Bag at Christmas. Between us we filled 23 bags which have now started their long journey to a refugee camp in the Middle East.

A message from ST Andrews Church. "A huge THANK YOU to all those who contributed in any way to the recent collection for Syrian refugees. Thank you to all who brought clothing, bedding, Smiley bags, Dignity bags, baby boxes, and medical aid, to those faithful packers who sorted, carried boxes and labelled goods, and also to those who have contributed to transport costs. We have over £500. Thank you also to Sue who accidentally donated her shoes!!!! Yes folks, you have to watch where you put your own stuff!
We packed over 200 boxes of Aid at St. Andrews and Brian Donnelly and his group did 300 boxes in Rickmansworth, a really terrific effort. Thank you too to Gary Grant who allowed us to use his warehouse where the container was loaded this week. The goods are now on their way.
WELL DONE everyone."  Judith
