Messy Church @ Fuller is back again on Sunday 25th November at 3:45pm.
Messy Church enables people of all ages to belong to Christ together through their local church. It is a way of being church which is particularly suited to families, but welcoming to all. It meets at a time and on a day that suits local families and is particularly aimed at people who have never belonged to a church before.
Messy Church is part of The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF), a Registered Charity. www.brf.org.uk

Well done to Cathy, Hannah, Kate, Maria, Roland and Sara who raised over £1,700 for Tear Fund's Mean Bean Challenge.
Several of you have asked "Why no November/December newsletter this year?". For the first time in 10 years I did not travel to Cameroon in November but I did travel in May 2017 and I have attached below a brief report of the main events of this year of change for our Cameroon childrens cancer treatment programme.
We have treated well over 1000 children with the common cancer, Burkitt's lymphoma and developed or amended (for a resource-limited setting) protocols for the treatment of other less common cancers. Our outcomes are peer reviewed and much of our work has been published in respected medical journals. I am simply thankful to God for the opportunity to be part of this pioneering work for the last 10 years - working with Christian colleagues in the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Service whose mission statement says: "We will provide exemplary care... to those in need ...as an expression of Christian love ...and as a means of evangelical witness". It has been a joy to travel with Prof Peter Hesseling, our clinical director - a man of great faith.
I travel to Cameroon on Feb.11th 2018.
As always I would value your prayers for travelling mercies in Cameroon. Pray that I will be an encouragement in every way to my Christian Cameroonian colleagues
