02. What's Happening

We have lots going on this month - we hope to have an electronic version of our monthly notice sheet to add to this page shortly, but here's a summary for now: 

Our first ever Messy Church  took place on Sunday 30th September 4.00pm.  Lots of people came along and we had fun sharing pizza, crafts and worship with Barnabas the lost sheep! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we're going to go Messy again - on Sunday 28th October at 4.00pm! We're thinking about Jesus, the Light of the World and we are promised baked potatoes and Flapjack from Carol's Kitchen, with light themed craft activities, and worship. Everyone is welcome - especially families. To find out more about Messy Church, ask Revd Fran or Carol Eastaugh or go to the Messy Church Website

Thank you everyone for your harvest donations:  We collected a bootload of goodies for Carecent at our morning service, and over £400 was raised through collections and donations at our Supper for WaterAid
