Dates for your Diary 2017
The Leadership Team are proposing to the Church Council that we organise several events to look forward to in 2017.These include Christian Aid Week, Harvest Festival, and Black History Month. Food and friendship will be key elements and we hope that we can make them special events to which to invite others. Here are some of the events for you to note in your diaries.
Christian Aid Week begins on 14th May Our proposals involve a Sunday breakfast and lunch on 14th May. We hope that the 9.00 and 10.30 services will join forces to organise a morning that begins with breakfast, welcomes a guest preacher from Christian Aid to a joint service, and then a church family lunch.
Following last year’s excellent Black History Month lunch, we hope Church Council will approve an expanded version on 21st to 22nd October. We are looking for people to help us make this special and more details will follow.
There will, of course, be many other things to look forward to including; an Easter holiday club event, summer holiday club, Holiday at Home and the 85th anniversary of Guiding groups. More details will follow in future Focus magazines. We look forward to seeing you there!
