Music Marathon!

It’s taken a bit longer than it should have to post this, but “Thank You!” to everyone who took part in the music marathon last week. It was a terrific day, with 12 hours of non-stop music (well, actually, we heard about Christian Aid a few times… see below).
The day began with Capo 3, regular performers at The Ritz Acoustic Club, then Churchfield Voices from Church field School, with the final act, The Flying Ducks, taking to the stage at 7.45pm for a terrific finale set. We’ll post a full summary of everyone here very shortly, but, for now: again, huge thanks to everyone, and especially for helping us raise over £500 for Christian Aid. The work of Christian Aid is part of our society these days, but it is sobering to remind ourselves that CA began in 1945 as a response to the needs of refugees fleeing all kinds of devastation in post-war Europe. It seems that these same issues remain with us to this day. The music paused for a few times during the day to hear from Jenny Humphreys about this vital work.
Thank you for all you support. More to follow.

Sea Sunday: 10th July 2016

Sea Sunday: 10th July 2016

Sea Sunday is a special time for us to recognise and thank all seafarers who work under extremely difficult and dangerous circumstances. Loneliness, isolation, abandonment, limited contact with family and even shipwreck are just some of the conditions seafarers often face. The Mission to Seafarers is proud to have supported and cared for seafarers for the last 160 years and we are passionate about providing crucial and urgent support to the 1.5 million seafarers across the globe. Our Family Worship this Sunday will feature Sea Sunday.

#Paris

At the end of each service of Holy Communion, the Common Worship liturgy directs the minister to say, ‘Go in peace, to love and serve the Lord’, at which point the congregation reply, ‘In the name of Christ, amen.’ It is, if nothing else, the basis for a profound mission statement for all churches. But […]
