Do you have your picnic blankets packed to bring to church on Sunday?

Back-to-school picnic – Sunday 10th September will take place in the Killesberg Park, on the meadow near the fairground. If you paste this dress into your browser, you’ll find quite a good map that has the Sommerblumenwiese on it:
There are toilets near by; just round the corner, by Elise’s Jahrmarkttheater, there is even a stall where you can buy drinks and ice creams. There is also the option for people to go on little excursions to the tower and the petting zoo.
We can hopefully have a picnic (bring your own and maybe a bit to share) and some games, at least football or other outdoor games that people have. Maybe someone with a car has the wooden “Sweden” or “Vikinger” Chess game?
There will be people to lead the way on public transport from Church. If you come under your own steam look out for Van, Heather and family.

Prayer requests
Please remember in your prayers the recruitment team writing the advert for our new “vicar” and those who will see it and be guided by God to apply for the post.
Those affected by the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and the Monsoon rains on the Indian Subcontinent.
All those going back to school or college next week, especially those who are starting at a new place of learning. Here is a prayer from the Church of England for you to share with your children or pray for yourself if you are starting a new school or job.

Loving God, let me be strong today
as I meet new people in new places.
Make me brave when I am worried,
show me how to learn from everyone around me,
and help me to do my very best. Amen.

Bible Study is back up and running after the summer break, join us to study the coming week’s gospel. Wednesdays, 19:30 in the Anglican Center.
Catch up on last week’s sermon online – Oops I did it again

Men’s pub night – meets tonight (7th Sept.) from 19:00 at Sophie’s Brauhaus, old friends and new faces welcome. Look for Darren.

Women’s Group At our last meeting, after a cup of tea and a chat, we sorted out the booklets containing the carols and music we use at the Carol Service. For some reason there were two versions in circulation with a different index of carols which caused some confusion at the last Carol Service. So now we can get more copies made so that everybody is able to find the right page. Our next meeting will be on Thursday, 21st September from 10 until 12 in the Anglican Centre. Gary has now kindly given me a key so there is no problem about getting in. I look forward to seeing you there.

Ladies’ Evening Group – The next meeting of the St. Catherine’s LEGS will be on Monday 18th September at Flo Steak and Burger Bolzstr. 10, 70173 Stuttgart (they also have vegetarian and gluten free options)
They don’t take reservations so we will just have to chance it …  but assuming that the weather is good there will probably be space inside. Even if we can’t reserve please let me know if you plan to come so that we can bag enough seats.

Sunday School Teachers’ Planning for the new term – if you are interested in joining our team of Sunday School Teachers or helpers please contact Susanna as we are beginning to plan the autumn term programme for the children.

News of our former Vicar and his family
Dear friends,
for the last week or so I suspended my Where in the World game, out of respect for all those affected by the Hurricane Harvey in Texas. It just didn’t seem right to show me gallivanting around sunny Europe so long as the situation was so dire. (My own house in Wharton seems to have escaped flooding, as far as I can tell from such a distance! Thanks be to God, …as are all the homes of the various Dimmicks in the Wharton area, to the best of my knowledge. Double Thanks be to God.) But now! Let the games continue….Where in the world am I in this picture? Good luck guessing!

Apologies if you get/have been getting two notifications about the news: we haven’t changed any settings and are trying to work out where the problem lies! But better twice than not at all 🙂
