It’s harvest time…

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:)

BurrswoodOn 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.
