*Ann Nadim and Mike Barlow are not able to be with us today. Mike is unwell and Ann is still recovering from an operation on her leg, which she has to keep her elevated and so is unable to drive.  Please pray for their healing.
*Don’t forget that the biweekly Bible Study begins next Friday Night, 10th January, at 7:30pm in the St. Steven’s Parish Centre upstairs room in Bricket Wood.  All are welcome to join the group as they continue looking at the book of Psalms with an eye for Messianic passages.  The study is followed by Refreshments.
*Also don’t forget that next week there is a Celebration Lunch straight after the Service.  This is being provided by three couples celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversaries.  Remember, no cards, no gifts, no fuss, just come along and enjoy the luncheon together.
