for Christian living. If you need a CD copy ask Barbara in the office
Hymn Books We have purchased a new set of Hymn Books for
congregational use. Whilst we do not often use them as church they
are used constantly by those attending wedding and funerals. The

Songs of Fellowship please take one and perhaps make a donation
toward the cost of their replacements.

Right to Believe Campaign This year the
Organisation for the Islamic Conference (OIC), linking 57 countries
with majority or significant Muslim populations, will once again
introduce the Defamation of Religious Resolution in the United
Nations. It allows governments the power to determine which
religious views can and can’t be expressed in their country, and it
gives the right to punish those who express ‘unacceptable’ religious
views at they see fit. In effect it makes persecution legal. Please
sign the petition on the welcome desk, and pray that the Resolution
will be defeated. Thank you Stephanie.
