Small charity HOST is seeking friendly people who would like to learn
more about other countries and cultures and share their home life
with adult international students at UK universities. Young adults
from many countries would love to have a short homely break and
discover the real life of this country. Host Kit Millington-Hore
wrote “Meeting students from around the world is hugely fulfilling
and satisfying. Watching their pleasure as you introduce them to our
ways of living, particularly over Christmas, is extremely rewarding.”
Visits can be for a day, weekend, or four days at Christmas. Offering
a Christmas invitation to someone who would otherwise be alone on a
University campus can make a big difference. Invitations are urgently
needed from volunteer hosts, no matter their age, or how far they
live from a university. To find out more, or to be put in touch with
your local organiser, please visit www.hostuk.org
or call 020 7739 6292.

Growing in God
On November 15th at the 11am service there will be an opportunity to share good news, update any answers to prayers or tell about anything newsworthy or encouraging. If you have something to share, please let Sue know.
We will also be looking at our next steps in “Growing in God”. This is a Diocesan initiative which builds on our Mission Action plan. If you have any thoughts about the next steps we need to take to help the faith grow please let a member of the PCC know. We are interested in all your thoughts and the service on Nov.15th will help us to think things through.
