Mission Prayer

Our mission prayer this week is for the Mahons

The Mahon family are serving in Peru as part of BMS' long-term programme. Based in Iquitos, they are working alongside the Loreto Association of Baptist Churches as they look to implement a sustainability plan over the coming years. You can follow their story on their blog paddingtonbearblog.wordpress. com.
If you would like more information about the Mahons contact Judith.

Keep in touch

Don't forget to pop in and visit members who aren't able to make it to church due to ill-health or other reasons. As the nights grow colder and days shorter, it is important we all keep in touch. If you know a member who would appreciate a visit, please contact a member of the pastoral team or speak to Steve.

Support for Carers

Carers Lewisham provide a range of services including advice, information, emotional support, breaks, opportunities to meet other carers, relaxation days and well-being sessions, coping strategies, specialist support for parent carers, carers of people with dementia, carers of people with mental health problems, older carers and carers who are caring for someone nearing the end of their life. Visit their site at or call 020 8699 8686
