You may remember that Hope08 was nominated for a Pride of Bracknell award. Well I've just hear that we won in the 'special contribution to pride in Bracknell' category. There is going to be a write up about it in the Bracknell News on Thursday, but thought before that comes out you might like this photo of Andy Bagwell picking up the award on behalf of the churches involved.
Sandy Lane Primary School also won an "Eco Hero" award - well done to them.
As an ongoing Hope08 event on Saturday 13th December we're going to be joining again as churches in Bracknell town centre, singing carols and giving out leaflets inviting people to the various Christmas events at our churches. Minced pies and mulled wine will also be on offer. That runs from 11am til 2pm. Whilst that's going on we'll also be meeting on The Kerith Centre lounge to pray for the outreach. It would be great to have lots of us there both to be part of the crowd and to pray.
Please be thinking about who to invite to our first Xmas Factor Live event on Sunday night. It's worth coming just to see how bad I am in my audition video! Be sure to get there on time, as the opening sequence is going to be spectacular, and remember to park in Avis!
Hope you're having a great week.
