One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

Touches of Heaven: Several members enjoyed Jacqui Parkinson’s textile exhibition in Southwell Minster last year. She is beginning her latest exhibition in Southwell Minster from Tuesday 15th October – Sunday 1st December.  She will display just two panels – Tree of Life and Open Heaven.  After that the exhibition will tour other cathedrals around the country.

Mothers’ Union: Nest month we welcome Lynda Blakely who will tell us about the work of the Nottingham Street Pastors who are based at the Malt Cross on St. James’ Street, Nottingham. We meet at 2pm. for a 2.15pm, start on Thursday, 14th November and everyone is welcome to join us to learn about this relatively new organisation. There will be a retiring collection to enable them to buy flip-flops and other essentials. Do join us!

Wollaton MU has invited us to their meeting on Thursday, 7th November at 2.30pm.,  to hear Tessa Rolph, an MU diocesan speaker, talk about the Contact Centre she runs in Retford, enabling non—resident parents – and grandparents –to  meet their children/grandchildren in a safe environment. I hope some of us will be able to go to this. Sheila Allton

The next Messy Church is on Saturday 30th November. For one month only we will be meeting from 11 to 1, this is to let everyone enjoy the rest of the activities planned in Beeston that day. We hope to see you there.

Sunday School: If you were inspired by Kirstine’s sermon but are unsure about whether you could help lead, please speak to a member of the clergy. All the administration for it is done, i.e. projects, stories etc., you would only need to follow the material on the day. Hopefully this will take some of the fear out of putting yourself forward!

EXPLORING THEOLOGY: I was so looking forwards to starting our Exploring Theology course. Unfortunately, I have been unwell and had to be admitted to hospital. I am recovering slowly. The Exploring Theology Course will now, God-willing, begin in January. I am so sorry for having to make this change. I am really looking forwards to sharing this programme with you. Thank you. Michael Taylor
