We have been sending shoe boxes containing Christmas gifts to families in Eastern Europe for a number of years now. This year Link to Hope celebrates its 25th year of operation. Many thanks to everyone who filled a shoebox this year and to Jean and Peter Ashdown and Rosemary Moore who kindly organised the collection for us again.
- The Back Page
A new edition of the The Back Page is produced with the weekly Service Paper and keeps us aware of relevant ideas, news and events happening beyond our church premises. Here is the previous week's edition.
- Church magazine (Church News)
View the current edition of the church magazine - back copies of the church magazine may be found here.
This monthly publication varying from 16 to 28 pages of news, faith matters, announcements of events, listings, pastoral news, debates, photos and jokes is produced by an editorial group who rotate the task, and who may stamp their imprint on the content and format, in turn. The young people in the church sometimes edit an edition.
Everyone is invited to make contributions to Church News which should be with the editor by the second Sunday of the month.
Church News comes out towards the end of the month. Printed copies are made available in the vestibule for all members and friends, and for some, it forms the only contact they have with events in the church. Copies are also available in the Foyer for visitors to read. If you require a large print version, please let Tony Wenman know. Church members and friends are kindly asked to contribute £1 per copy to help meet printing costs. There is also the option to receive an e-copy instead of your printed copy and Tony Wenman will willingly add your name to his list of subscribers should you prefer to do that! (Note that this is the full version and not the edited version which appears on the website each month).
Church News is also published on the website a few days after it has been published in traditional format. Using the E-alert at the top of the web pages will allow you to know, by email, when the latest edition becomes available.
