17th December 2014

Hello Friends,

Tomorrow, Thursday 18th, you are invited to a Free Christmas Celebration Concert @ Emmanuel Church, LE11 3NW (refreshments at 11.30 pm, concert begins at 12.45 pm).   Don't be late!

We'll meet next Sunday afternoon (21st December) from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm in the ‘Lounge’ @ Emmanuel Church Centre, 43 Forest Road; your 'hosts' will be Kevin, Helen, and David ~ 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.

Please send me some pictures from the recent Christmas Dinner - I'll put them in the photo album.   Do you have questions about 'Christmas'?   Have a look at the .pdf attachments (save them to your computer, and copy them to your friends).   You may always ask us questions on Sunday afternoons - we're here to help you whenever we can.

May you all experience God’s wonderful blessing,

Clive
