Hello Friends,

We're looking forward to our CHRISTMAS 'Dinner & Party' this Friday evening - are you coming?   There are just a couple of tickets left, so contact me now if you want them.

We'll meet next Sunday afternoon (30th November) from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm in the ‘Lounge’ @ Emmanuel Church Centre, 43 Forest Road;  your 'hosts' will be Aaron, David, Linda, and John ~ plus other volunteers!   OPEN-HOUSE International Friendship Café welcomes overseas visitors to Loughborough (students, academics, employees, residents - married or single, children and adults); those for whom the U.K. is a ‘foreign’ land!

Do invite your overseas friends to join us on Sunday afternoons ~ we have travel books, games of skill, toys for the children, refreshments ~ and opportunities for making new friends, learn about different places, and practice your English.

Were you unable to attend last week's excellent presentation - Does God 'Like' Social; Media ? - given by Prof. Paul Chung?   You can catch up on it by going to the link:-

Next Sunday is called 'Advent' Sunday in the Christian calendar - it is when we begin preparing for the birthday of Christ, 'Christmas Day'.   December is full of events to which you are all invited - parties, services, films and celebrations.
  
We are often asked questions about life and customs in the UK, so I have attached an updated article you may find of interest.   Let me know if I should amend or add to it.

May you all experience God’s wonderful blessing,

Clive
