Pear Tree Fellowship

 

The Pear Tree Fellowship

Following on from our Break in August Pear Tree started again in September. 

We heard from Carol Cole all about Operation Christmas Child.  This is an act of practical Christianity when we fill a Shoebox for a child the other side of the World who is living in poverty. Most have never experienced the joy of receiving a gift - so different from our children's Christmases today.  Carol had herself been to Romania and seen the wonderful effect the Shoeboxes had on the children.  She explained that each Box contained a book about Jesus telling of his Love and organised by Samaritans Purse and many had become Christians as a result.

We have to thank Marjorie and Derek Hyatt for organising the Shoe Boxes and our Congregation who fill them. .  (There is more about this on page 29)

Our Speaker on October 9th will be Claire Matthews and her title is  "Hope for Food".

Our Meeting in November will be on 13th so we will be commemorating the Armistice of 1918. 
It was nice to see a good audience for our Meeting in September and we are always happy to see visitors at our Talks.
