Christian Aid Week 12 -18 May

We give thanks for a very successful coffee morning last Saturday at Christ Church, and it was lovely to see so many people there. Thank you to all who came along and also those who baked cakes and we expect to have raised around £206 plus donations. Our United Service on Sunday was a special occasion as members of the three churches came together for worship and to prepare for Christian Aid Week. David Blackmore was our guest speaker, and we very much appreciated his encouraging message.  As you may know from what he said he is embarking on a sponsored 70k cycle ride on 25 May and has so far raised over £1200. Some people said they would like to sponsor him and asked for his details, and these are at: https://fundraise.christianaid.org.uk/challenge-2024/davidd-70k-may .

Finally thank you to all those who went ‘house to house’ delivering and collecting envelopes and I hope it was a good experience for you and, like me, an opportunity both to raise money and renew friendships.
