SHAPING OUR VISION Please remember to return your questionnaires by the end of October.
So far we’ve had 50 questionnaires from 180 households on our Family Roll. We need more!
We’d like 90. This is important, as it will set the agenda for our mission and ministry at both
St Peter’s and Wolvercote Baptist Church for the next few years. We need to hear what God is
saying to you and through you about the life and work of the church in Wolvercote. Please take
the time (20 minutes?) to respond.
ALL SOULS We will be marking All Souls this year during the 10am service on Sunday
2 November. If you would like someone who has died remembered in the service, please print
their name(s) on one of the slips and put it in the box at the back of St Peter’s.
OPEN FELLOWSHIP GROUP Monday 27 October, 2.30pm, St Peter's Old School Room
Revd. Martin Henig will give a talk entitled "Putting Animals on the Agenda of the Christian
Church". Martin is Vice-President of the Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals (ASWA).
As usual, there will be plenty of time for discussion, followed by tea. Everyone is very
welcome. Margaret Williams
