Tuesday 16 April - 'Vital Signs'  - a Bible Study Group led by Hilary Swift

Hilary Swift, the Benefice's Lay Reader, is leading a lively discussion group in the Barn at the Plough Inn looking at the seven miracles or 'signs' that St John writes about in his gospel. Signs that point to who that seemingly ordinary carpenter from an obscure town in a corner of the Roman Empire really was.

Does this man who walked the dusty streets of Palestine 2,000 years ago have any relevance to us today?

Can his words really bring life to us in modern Britain?

You don’t need to be a churchgoer to come along.  The more active the discussion the better. Why not give it a try? You can be sure of a friendly welcome. 
Join us for our next lively discussion in the Barn at the Plough Inn, Coldharbour on
Tuesday 16 April, starting at 8pm - there’s no need to book.  The following meeting is on Tuesday 21 May.  Many thanks to Becky for providing the venue.

If you would like more information, please contact us. or call the Parish office on 01306 737160.

Sunday 28 April - The Annual Parochial Church Meeting
The 'APCM' will be held in the John Venus Hall at 6.00pm.  This is a key meeting in the life of Christ Church, when the Church Wardens and members of the Parochial Church Council (PCC) are elected, when the accounts for the previous year are presented and (hopefully!) approved and when other matters relating to life of Christ Church, including its future development and the material state of the  Church and the JV Hall are discussed. 

Please do your best to come and contribute your suggestions about the future of our Church here in Coldharbour.

Saturday 18 May - The Coldharbour Fete 
Starting at 2.00pm, the annual village fete a fun family event which also helps support Christ Church.  

To make it a success, we needs lots of volunteers - 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 let us know.

Sunday 24 November - Visit by the Bishop of Dorking
Bishop Jo Bailey Wells will be coming to preach at our 210..00am Holy Communion service, and to meet with the congregation over coffee afterwards.  It would be really good to have a full church to greet her.
