Harvest

This year’s harvest celebrations in the church will take place on Sunday, 13th September. The 10.30 morning service  will be a Harvest Thanksgiving.  The craft group will have used their new skills to decorate a window, donations received for the foodbank will be displayed.  At 4pm there will be a harvest Tea and Family Quiz (tickets are free but we need to know who is coming to provide adequate catering).

Fordingbridge Foodbank

Thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers the Trussell Trust will be opening a foodbank in the Rainbow Centre on Monday, 7th September.

Dedication

Approximately 160 church members and guests celebrated the renovations to our church on the afternoon of 7th June.  It was a happy occasion.  As part of the service people were invited to speak if they wished, several did and complimented us and wished the church well for the future.

The service was followed by a strawberry and cream tea and the weather joined in by providing a warm and sunny day.

Church reopening

The internal building work is almost complete, and we expect the church to be ready for use on Sunday 1st March for our usual Service at 10.30 a.m.. Please come to see what has been done. The church will also be open on Saturdays 7th and 14th March between 10 a.m. and 12 noon.

It’s all happening !

Work started on the 22nd September.  Our last service in the sanctuary was our Harvest Festival on the 14th.  Church services will continue in the room at the rear of the church for the 16 to 20 weeks that the sanctuary is a building site, as will other regular activities.  Our forecourt will be boarded off for the width of the church, but access will remain open on each side for users of the Rainbow Centre and the rear room.  The erection of scaffolding will mean that only pedestrian access is available for some weeks.

The big decision

A meeting of church members on Wednesday 13th August approved the acceptance of a tender to commence the work for Equipping for the Future (click on More About Us above).  There were no votes against, so we now have to put our shoulders to the plough and raise the balance of the funds required.  Essential work to cure the dampness affecting the walls needs to be completed before winter and it is hoped to start work on the whole project in mid-Septemeber.

Please pray for a successful outcome.
