Here is the updated weekly parish newsletter giving details of various services and events in the parish
The past week has seen the country as a whole face many problems (some still ongoing) due to the widespread disruption caused by the 'Beast from the East'. Whilst the media has sensationalised the event it has meant that many communities throughout Britain have suffered loss and hardship, however one thing it has done it brought those communities together. There have bee numerous reports of people giving up their time and offering their services to help those around them, from hotels and guest houses opening their doors for the homeless to taxi companies and 4x4 owners working through the night transporting carers and valuable supplies. Hopefully this work will continue and if nothing else this last week will serve to strengthen the bonds within our communities.
As per our previous blogs we are as always developing and expanding our calendar of events to not only highlight the work of the church but help bring our community together. We have a couple of events planned in the run up to Easter, there is the Agape Meal, this is being held on Maundy Thursday and we also have a Good Friday workshop (see details of both below). Please keep checking our Whats on page and Calendar for further information on upcoming events etc.
With the way that many people think of the church and religion we are always thinking of new ways to not only promote the work of the church but also try to engage with the community and show that church is not a 'stuffy place' where you just 'sing hymns and pray'. With this in mind we have started to put togeather a whole calendar of events for 2018. Please keep checking on our Whats On! page, Facebook and Twitter for more details of upcoming events and activities.
