Old Gold

Thanks to all of you who donated broken gold to help us raise funds for Christ Church.  Ken Scott has collected it all up and sent it off to turn the gold into money for us.  We will receive £837.42 for it!  Quite a sum.  Well done everyone. 

Confirmations & Receptions

In June of this year I shall be celebrating the silver jubilee of my ordination to the priesthood. Bishop Kevin has agreed to come to Christ Church to conduct a service of confirmation and reception for anyone in the congregation who would like to be formally received into the church.  If you would be interested in joining a preparation class, add your name to the list on the table at the back of the church.  I will get back to you with possible dates for meetings.

Prayer

When she is with us on Sundays The Revd Liz Clelland will offer pastoral prayer in the Memorial Chapel after the Sung Eucharist to individuals who would like it.
