Christian Aid - a splendid update
so far this year our church has raised £2461.56 for Christian Aid, from a combination of Lent lunches, house to house collections and the Big Brekkie. Thank you to everyone who donated or helped in any way, your commitment makes a massive difference.
A new Alpha course starts soon
Maybe this year's confirmation has left you curious to know more - about Jesus, about faith, about all the big life questions so many of us share. If you'd like to explore further, Alpha may be for you - with videos, discussion and a meal. Talk to Patrick for more info.
Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th November 2017 at Whitemoor Lakes
Exciting for children, perfect for families, welcoming for everybody – our weekends away have been a fabulous way to cement friendships, build new ones and have a weekend that’s a real break as well as loads of fun.
This year we’re going to a new venue close to Lichfield, similar to the Pioneer Centre where we went before, but a bit more modern.
What will it be like? It will be a great mix – outdoor activities for adventurous types of all ages, indoor crafts and activities for the less physically energetic. There’ll be a trip to the National Memorial Arboretum led by our very own Colonel Dominque Cairns! And all sorts of other things, such as an organised walk, as well as opportunities to worship, reflect and pray. Nor can we forget the Vicar’s challenge – always an eye-opener!
It’s a time to do what you feel like doing – as much or as little as you want, nothing is mandatory!
Talk to Bill Humphreys to book your places now! (His email is below)
If you want to catch a flavour of what a church weekend away is like look at the photos on our webpages:
