…so from Sunday 24th July until Sunday 28th August inclusive there will be no 9.00am service. Our 9.15am Communion service and 11.00am service will continue as usual.
Services will be back to normal from 4th September.
Most of our regular activities will be taking a break too; check the church calendar to see what’s on.
Momentum is gathering!
• 100 leaders from nearly 60 churches across Hampshire joined us for lunch at the end of June to be envisioned for the Who Cares? Hampshire Mission in 2017.
• In July there was a similar meeting of church leaders in Bury St Edmunds to be envisioned for the Who Cares? Suffolk Mission also in 2017. The team in Norfolk are also preparing for their next mission in 2018.
The next key date for us here in Hampshire is Saturday 8th October when we have our Vision Night. We have produced this ‘trailer’ for you to use to inspire others from your church to come along and get caught up in this outreach campaign.
We would like to invite you to our Vision Night which will take place at the Aldworth School, Western Way, Basingstoke RG22 6HA on:
Saturday 8th October, 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00pm)
This invitation is open to all church members and especially those with a heart for outreach who will go back and enthuse the rest of the church family. We anticipate that tickets will go quickly so please book early.
On the evening we will be joined by Roy Crowne who leads HOPE Together which has motivated thousands of church to share the love of Christ with their communities in partnership with other local churches. We will also be joined by the Bishop of Basingstoke and a hearing special message from Rob Tervet who created and piloted the Who Cares? strategy in Norfolk in 2011. Worship will be led by local musicians.
We have invited local Christian charities to participate in an exhibition of the dozens of ways that they already demonstrate practical care and love for people in our communities. You will be able to browse their displays and speak to volunteers about their work. Who knows you may be inspired to offer practical or financial support to one or other of these organisations!
During the evening there will be an opportunity to give your support to the Who Cares? Hampshire mission. You will be able to give in a variety of ways but the most helpful is by standing order accompanied by a Gift Aid declaration.
