Over the next few weeks each of our three churches will have it’s own Harvest Festival service, and all the churches will be decorated in celebration of this ancient festival. All the details of services are in the diary.
We particularly welcome children at these services and hope you will bring a gift of food which will be shared with those who are in need. Cans and packet foods are very practical and useful gifts:)
On Saturday 3rd October we have a chance for our three congregations to get together, pray together, exchange ideas and look to the future of our churches, at Burrswood, Groombridge.
Once in a while it is important to examine what we are doing and see if we could be doing it better. If you are a regular member of the church community come and tell us what you would like to be focussing on and if you feel you aren’t really part of things but would like to be, let us know what we could do to welcome you better.
This is the programme for the day:
10.30am Coffee and biscuits
11.30am Eucharist in Burrswood Chapel
12.15am Introduction to the afternoon by Clare Walker our facilitator.
1.30pm Group work around Healthy Churches
3.00pm Tea and cakes
Clare Walker is PCC Governor to Hever School and works for St Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy.
