Dates for your Diary

Wednesday 31 October

Light Party! 

A Christian alternative to Halloween for families, involving travelling around all the churches in the village. If you would like to help organise this, or take part, please contact Karen Selby on 01943 600843 or Wendy Walker on 07842 717810


Saturday 10 November

We will be joined by Gordon Dey who will lead sessions probably both morning and afternoon. Gordon is a very engaging, entertaining speaker so this is a special opportunity for us to share some energising time together.

We will then build on his visit early in the New Year as we explore his course entitled ‘Jesus Shaped People’.

We will share lunch together and also enjoy a social in the evening at Salem church hall.

Further times and details will follow but this is not to be missed, so please do commit to joining in.
