Lyn Milns is arranging her last Wreath Festival this December and hopes someone will take on this very popular festival in 2024. She is also stepping back from her years of work with the youth on the Rec (see last week's email for more details). If anyone is being called by God to take up either of these batons, please see Lyn.
Also, Pat and Mike Farmer are stepping down from creating (along with others), maintaining and changing the banners in the church, after 17 years of wonderful work. We are very grateful for their commitment and creativity. If anyone feels that they could organise a team to do this, please let me know.
Next Sunday at 5.30pm we have our time of prayer for our Mission Partners.

Speak to Andy Keats, Sheila Keats, Paul Taylor, Keith Mersh, Nigel or me for more info.

Update from Kezia Savage: First, my apologies on the delay to update this prayer chain, but I thought I would come back here when I had something concrete to actually say. It is with great happiness I update this prayer chain. I have received the first offer for my two job interviews.
I thank GOD first for all his love and care for me and my family and second my Brothers and Sisters in Christi for their prayers. I am over the moon with this news. it is exactly the trust (Kings Lynn) I wanted to work for. I am still waiting for NNUH results, but they always have been just my plan B, because of the close distance they are from me.
