HELP NEEDED ON CHRISTMAS EVE AFTERNOON Because of continuing concerns over COVID, we are planning to hold our Christmas Eve afternoon service at St Martins outside as we did last year. In addition to the Soundbites team, this requires several additional volunteers. We need a few strong people to arrange equipment (including putting up a gazebo) before the event, starting at about 2.30 pm, and taking things down again afterwards at about 4.30 pm, plus stewards for the event, both as greeters at the gates (at least 3 people) and a few extra to monitor the perimeter of the churchyard, particularly the edges along Church Street and Wests Garage to avoid people falling. If you can help, please speak to me. Thank You. John Pascall

A BIG THANK YOU for holding Tom and Ann in prayer over the last few weeks. A C.T. scan has shown that my bowel cancer has not returned; the lesion I had has been removed and no follow-up is needed. Such good news for Tom - his broken back is healing so well and he is able to walk - such good news for all the Peacock family. My love and prayers are with you all. Thank you again for your love and support. In Jesus Name. Ann Peacock 

LUNCHTIME CONCERT IN ST AGNES CHURCH NEWMARKET Thurday 9th December 1 pm- 1.45 pm "Music for Advent" - David Poulter, former director of music at the cathedrals of Liverpool, Chester and Coventry. Retiring Collection. 

FOODBANK UPDATE A message from Dr Tony White. Whilst we are well stocked with many things, we do currently have severe shortages of the following items: Long life semi-skimmed milk; Small bags of granulated sugar; Tinned meats (especially easy to prepare such as curries, stews, chilli con carne); Custard (tinned or instant packets); Rice pudding (tinned); Sweet biscuits.

Any help would be gratefully received - at the foodbank or contact me if that is not convenient - I am happy to receive donations at home. I am also aware that it is some time since I updated my contact list - if any changes are needed or if you think I have omitted someone please let me know.
