Wear your thermals this week to church, it's for a good cause!
We will be holding our service at 10.30am in the church, not the church hall, but it will be a shorter service than normal and it will be cold. Really sorry, but the boiler problem is not yet solved and we are honouring our commitment to holding the Christian Aid lunch and the church hall will be all set up for feeding all the people coming to that.
The GOOD NEWS is that we can make the church hall warm - so you will have lunch in comfort.
So the latest on the boiler is that it definetely has to be replaced and while we are waiting for that to be possible we will be having a temporary boiler which will work from trailer by the back door.
I'm hoping this will be with us in a week or two. Keep praying and layer up to come and worship!

Rugby Christian Aid invite you to Sunday lunch here at St Peter & St John’s on Sunday 21st October at 12.30pm. There is a list to sign up in the church or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place. This year for every £1 given the EU will match this with £4 so please join us if you can. The cost is £10 per head which includes a donation to Christian Aid.
You might want to come to church tomorrow dressed like this!
or how about this?
Sorry everyone but this is our problem.... our boiler (which looks a bit like this and lives in the cellar) has died.
We are looking at the very strong likelihood that we will need a completely new boiler and are looking into this urgently.
Meanwhile we hope to have a temporary boiler within about 2 weeks which will sit on a trailer by the back door. We hope this will give us heat while we go about the major task of replacing the boiler.
Meanwhile a huge sorry to all hall users. Please bear with us.
We are all in this together!
So please, if you can, think about a few other things (apart from dressing warmly).
1. Please pray that God will meet our need for a new boiler by helping find the right solution quickly. We are already thankful for people who have begun to help
2. Please think about giving towards the cost. You can go to our Giving page to find out how to do this
One final thought to leave you with: in God's economy we are wildly wealthy and incredibly blessed. As we seek to solve this practical problem, let's not forget to give thanks and remember the poor and the hungry.
