The Nest Café
The Nestis now open and the initial opening hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30 am until 2.15 pm. This is a café open to ALL. You can bring your friends, come and chat to people you may not know, make new friends and help to make this venture a real success. It is situated in the heart of Westham at The Waverley (121, Abbotsbury Road) and is providing a much needed community resource for that area. Also, it is providing an opportunity to come and chat to people who may be lonely and grateful for some company.

The café offers good quality coffee (much cheaper than elsewhere!), tea, snacks and light lunches all at amazing prices. Come and see for yourself and at the same time support The Nest which is fast approaching its first birthday.

Vacancies

The Nest is looking for volunteers to help with various roles - see here for details.


Spring Harvest 2022
Join Spring Harvest for an evening of worship, learning and laughter together! Host Phil Loose interviews Rev Cris Rogers and Beatrice Smith as they share personal stories from their own life and the vision for Spring Harvest 2022. Emma Worrall from Open Doors also leads us into a powerful time of inspiration and reflection, followed by some moments of worship from Tim Hughes and Lucy Grimble

We've already introduced you to the 2022 Spring Harvest theme: Restore, Renew, Rebuild. But maybe you're wondering, what does that really mean? God loves taking the broken pieces of the universe and practising resurrection with them. That’s the nature of God, that's the character of God. He holds the fragile in His hands and He practises resurrection. Dare we invite God to take the dust and the dirt, the fragile and the broken and breathe new life into it? We’ll let the video explain more…


Join us in 2022 and let's Restore, Renew and Rebuild together. Book your place to join us on our brand new event site here: https://springharvestevent.org/

Live music from Spring Harvest Home 21. Stream or download from your favorite platform.


CAP Christmas Update

We are so grateful for the generosity of everyone wanting to bless those working with Christians Against Poverty and for their help bringing the Christmas Project together. (See more, below).
For those who wanted to buy and donate items to go in the hampers, as promised, these can be dropped off on December 8th from 11 am-1 pm or  5 pm-6 pm at Ebenezer Church, Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.
Many thanks from the CAP team!

The Lantern Charity Shop
has been providing a great service to its local community and raising funds for The Lantern Trust, a local homeless charity, for many years. They are looking for a part time Charity Shop Manager (15 hours a week) to oversee the charity shop and build its team of volunteers to ensure the shop runs well operationally and continues to serve the local community. That person will need to have relevant retail experience, hopefully display skills for clothing, bric-a-brac and window displays, and someone who can build and manage a team of volunteers. Although the position doesn't need to be filled by a Christian, it would be lovely if someone felt called to serve God in this quite fragile community. Salary is £10 per hour £19,500 pro rata. If you would like further information do contact Karen Sharpe.
Many thanks,
Cherry Clarke

Advent Moments
Advent MomentsWelcome to Advent Moments, Premier’s journey to the heart of Christmas!
As we approach Christmas, we know that despite ourselves, we can be caught up in the expectations, the gift buying, meal planning, decorations, family and church events, parties and school commitments.
Advent Moments is a reminder each day to step away from the to do lists and the humdrum. To reflect, to give, to pray, to spend time with God.
Each week, we’ll follow a different theme: Hope, Love, Joy and Peace. On Mondays we’ll send you the schedule for the week by text. Each day you’ll receive a daily keep-on-track email containing your Advent moment: a challenge, task or thought for the day. Join us!

CAP Christmas Hampers
CAP will be making Christmas hampers again this year for their clients. There is a video clip from CAP to watch on this link - Emma’s story.
If you would like to support CAP they would be really grateful. A convenient time will be arranged for people to drop items off at Ebenezer Church early in December and financial gifts can be given via REFRESH so that items can be purchased to go in the hampers. Any help would be gratefully received, they are hoping to make about 40 hampers and really couldn't do this without the support of local Christians and Churches!
Also, if anyone would like to help deliver the hampers, please get in touch with Claire. The hampers will be delivered during the afternoon of Wednesday 15th December and after 3pm on Thursday 16th December.
Thank you! Cherry Clarke
