Social and Outreach Events
calendar_todayFri 1st February 2019 - 8:25pm
As many of you know, after many years of service out Social Committee are taking a step back this year. They will still be running a number of Coffee Afternoons, for which the dates are in this magazine. I would like to thank all those who have been involved in the Social Committee for their dedication and hard work over so many years.
With the PCC I have agreed the following provisional dates for social and outreach events. The aim of these events first and foremost is to enable us to be “God in the Community” and to enable us to share special occasions with those who do not regularly come to church. Second to this is the fundraising element, which is important to support our financial needs as a church. However, my challenge to all of us is that we would bring one friend to at least one event in the next year. For our church will only grow, survive and then thrive, if we add to our number (Acts 2).
