Lent Group - Journey to the Cross
Everyone is welcome to join in our Lent Group which will be meeting five times in people's homes across the Benefice and think about Jesus' journey to the cross.  The aim is to discuss in depth some of the key events in Jesus' life, freely and to exchange ideas, as well as to have space for reflection and quiet meditation.  You are welcome to join in every session or just some.

The annual village fete is a fun family event which also helps support Christ Church.  

To make it a success we needs lots of volunteers - to create ideas for events and stalls, to help prepare for it, to contribute items to sell as well as  for the raffle and tombola and for the tea tent, as well as to run the stalls and help in the tea tent and to clear everything away.  If you think you will be able to help in any way or would like to find out more about ways in which you might be able to help please contact us.
