Tuesday Coffee Morning – every Tuesday 10 to 12.  

This is a real opportunity to support each other and members of the public who are looking to get out and meet people. I would really like to publicise the coffee morning more widely, because it gives us a real opportunity to minister to the lonely and isolated and reconnect as a fellowship too. If you have not joined us on Tuesdays please come and do so, we would love to see you there.   Running alongside the Coffee morning we are pleased to be able to open the church up for silent prayer and reflection. We would encourage you to come along and sit in this splendid building. Our future hope will be to open the church on a Thursday too.  
Christmas Nativity

This year Louise and Messy church will be holding their annual Nativity play on Sunday 12th December. If you have a budding actor or actress who would like to take part please contact Louise at outreachbeacon@gmail.com 
Bible Study

For some time now James and a small group of us have been attending bible study on a Thursday at 7.30pm. We normally meet at Darron’s house however we also have the facility to join online. In the next few weeks, we will be looking at the lives of the disciples and their relationship with Jesus. If you would like to join please speak to either James, Darron or Caz.
Jars of Grace

Jars of Grace for November will go to support Primrose in conjunction with the Lights of Love.
Christmas Worship

Following discussion with the elders of both Beacon and Emmanuel Churches, a warm invitation is extended to all members of the Beacon to join Emmanuel for morning worship on Christmas Day at 10.15, where James will be taking the service. There will be no service at the Beacon. An invitation has been extended to Emmanuel Church members to join us for Midnight Holy Communion at the Beacon on Christmas Eve, where James will again be leading worship. There will be no morning worship at the Beacon on Sunday 26th December.   If you would like a lift to Redditch for the Christmas Day service, please contact Terry Thompson. We plan to ensure that everyone who wants to go to the service in Emmanuel will be able to do so.
Prayer Requests.

If you have any requests for prayers to be included in Sunday worship, please contact Caz or James. Prayer requests won’t be included in this bulletin unless you specifically request it.
Passing of David Troth

It’s will sadness that we have been informed that David Troth passed away at the end of September. David was married to Di Troth who was the cleaner at the Beacon for many years. We would ask you to pray for Di and her family at this difficult time.  
Annual Leave

James is on annual leave next week, from the 15th to the 22nd of November. He is probably going away for a few days but isn’t sure where yet.
