Summer Fire

Posted in Uncategorized

Hurrah!  This Sunday is Summer Fire in the Vicarage garden.

There will be:
* a campfire (with a fire circle for safety)
* sausages cooked over the fire
* live music
* s’mores
* nice people to chat to
* lots of fun

All this for just £1 per person.  Unbeatable value.  
The fun starts at 5pm.  Come to church first at 4pm or go straight to the Vicarage for 5.  If you’re coming, please send us a Facebook message or sms/Whatsapp the church mobile on 07490 582750 so we can make sure there’s plenty of sausages and s’mores for everyone.

We’re Back

Keep an eye out all this week for updates on everything that’s coming.  In the meantime, have we mentioned that we’re looking for a genius Children’s and Families Worker?  Find out more here.

Book on now, give yourself another thing to look forward too!
