What great news, Prince Harry is engaged to Megan Markle. The royals have so much to celebrate with the Queen and Prince Philip celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary and a new arrival of a prince or princess for William and Kate in the coming year. We are so blessed to have a royal family who do so much to make our country great - lots to look forward to in the months ahead. As December approaches we will be celebrating the birth of a special king.

Christmas with Churches together in Hornton will be spreading the joy of Jesus birth with our special services, the first being Christingle at 6pm on 11th December in the Church. Chapel will host the nine carols and readings on 17th at 6pm led by Rev. Lin Francis and there will be a Crib service in the Church at 5pm on Christmas Eve. Our first event is the Christmas lunch on Monday 4th in the Chapel. Hope you can come.

You will be delighted to know that we raised £565 from the Christmas soup lunch and Christmas bingo for much needed Chapel funds. Thank you for your help and support. The circuit stewards brought a candidate to fill the vacant ministry position to Hornton on the morning of the soup lunch. He also visited Hinton. However he decided not to take up the position and so we still need to keep praying that the right person will be found soon to fill the post.

On 17th November we held the Children in Need coffee morning and was able to send £175 to the cause.

Thank you everyone who came to the christening of Joshua Rhys-Davies. The Chapel was full and it was very important that our regular congregation was there to welcome him into our Christian family.

This Saturday 2nd December is the Church Christmas Fayre to be held in the Church at 6pm. There is a special competition for clubs in the village to make a table decoration and Coffee morning has been invited to enter.

Please continue to pray with us on Wednesday mornings at 8am. We pray for Churches Together in Hornton, our congregations, for those known to us that are not so well or finding life difficult and for the wider world. If you would like a prayer, please let us know and please join in by saying the Lords Prayer at that time.

I know a lot of you will find it difficult to come to the Christmas services as they are mainly in the evening but even if you can’t make it, perhaps you would like to choose a carol for the Carol Service and we will think of you while we sing it. (Tel 670507).

Hopefully I will see you before Christmas but if not have a Happy Christmas and I look forward to seeing you in the new year.

Jean Burden and Julie Stanley did the flowers on the cross at the chapel.
