Tots Summer Get Togethers
There is no Tots & Tinies during the summer holidays, but there will be an informal get-together every week at 10am. Please click on the image for more details.
Everyone welcome, but please note that nothing will be led or supervised - it's just a chance to meet up and play together. Feel free to bring a picnic too!
Holiday Club 2017 - The River
Welcome to the Ham Family
Welcome to Alec (our new curate), Leah, Oscar & Charlie Ham.
Please pray for Alec, as he starts his new role, and for the whole family as they settle into Hartford.
Holiday Club 2017
Holiday Club 2017 will be 29th August to 1st September. There are sign-up sheets available at the back of church, so please take a look and offer your help: your support, cake-baking, admin, teaching and general encouragement is most welcome and vital.
We are particularly in need of people to lead some of the groups, so please do consider if that's something you could help with.
Please would you collect the following items for this summer's holiday club craft ideas: cardboard tubes from inside kitchen rolls and 1 litre (tall) drinks cartons. There will be a collection box in the Church Extension. Thank you!
Famine has already been declared in parts of South Sudan, and Somalia is likely to experience famine this year. Parts of Kenya and Ethiopia are rapidly heading towards crisis stage. Extreme drought conditions, often worsened by conflict, have left millions on the brink of starvation and it will only get worse if we don’t act quickly.
If you would like to donate something towards Tearfund's East Africa Appeal, please use one of the purple envelopes and mark it 'Tearfund'. Thank you.
Help with reading in schools
We would love more church members to become involved in supporting our local schools, by joining our Pray Bake Read scheme. We currently have small teams of volunteers praying for four of our schools, going in to listen to children read and/or baking cakes for the children.
