There will be another camera crew in church at 15:00 on Tuesday 1st December to film a very short documentary on The Russian Orthodox Nativity Fast (Advent). Holy Baptism at 10:30 in St Elisabeth's on Saturday 5th December. Please pray for Ralphs Nicholas and Alexanders and Richard and Lana. Both families are from Latvia and live in Southport.

Thank you to all those who helped get the church ready for the Nativity Fast, for the choir who sang so well for the TV crew last Sunday and for all the lovely fasting food after church. We rounded the collection up to £200 which we will send to the Fund for Assistance.
