It’s HARVEST TIME! Join us for worship, prayer and teaching this morning led by Sue, looking at John 4:43-54 as part of our series, ‘Transformed’.

If you would like to bring a food donation to the service, please bring gifts of tins and packets which will be collected on behalf of PAFRAS. Find out more about PAFRAS, Positive Action for Refugees & Asylum Seekers, here!. PAFRAS distribute a huge amount of food in an average year and food donations are vitally important for their capacity to continue to do so.

Donations of the following foodstuffs are welcome:

Tins: Tomatoes, pulses, chickpeas and other beans and pulses, vegetables and fruit, fish and meat (except pork). Custard, rice pudding etc. are also good.
Dry food: Sugar, rice, pasta, couscous, pulses, cereals, (these are split down into portions, so catering size bags are useful), tea, small jars of instant coffee, cereals.
Sweets: Dried fruit, nuts, biscuits, chocolate bars and cakes.
We also need: Long-life milk, fruit juices, and diluting juice/squash, cooking oil.

In addition to food stuff service users often need the following: Toiletries such as soap, shower gel, shampoo, deodorant, tooth paste and brushes, safety razors and sanitary towels. Things like babies’ nappies, talcum powder, baby wipes, etc are also always helpful.

This is an all-age service so there are no separate sessions for under 16s during the service but everyone will stay in the service together.

Morning services at HLBC include a variety of music styles and singing, Bible teaching and prayer. A creche usually runs at the same time for 3s and under. A baby room is also available at the back of the church during the service. Refreshments are provided after the service ends, usually between 11.20 to 11.30am.

Contact the Church Office if you’d like to know more about services at HLBC.
