Update from Making A Difference Fairtrade StallPauline Creevey and Jane Newey are planning to step down from leadership of the Fairtrade market stall early in 2019. We feel the stall needs fresh ideas and we are praying that someone will come forward with a passion for Fairtrade and the idea that we are a Christian light in the Market place. Traidcraft are continuing to trade in 2019 but with a reduced number of lines (still a good selection) . We also have trade accounts with Leprosy Mission and Eden and Illuminate. We have a small group of enthusiastic volunteers who are covering January and we will continue to trade with existing stock.  (Open Fridays 9-2.30 and Saturdays 10-2) Please speak to Matthew if you would like contact details of Jane or Pauline.

Acts 2:36-40

36 ‘Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.’

37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, ‘Brothers, what shall we do?’

38 Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptised, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off – for all whom the Lord our God will call.’

40 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, ‘Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.’

Matthew 28:16-19
