Churches Together in Farnham

Dear friends:
 
As we move towards an end to lockdown restrictions, many of us will be wondering what life might look like.  Much has changed in the past year, but there remains one constant — Jesus.
 
We don’t know how society will emerge;  we’re not sure what the High Street might look like;  or how Churches will feel when face coverings are removed and we can sing again - but the subject of our affection never changes.  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
 
I pray that for you and yours, as we pivot yet again, as we consider who we can meet and how, that we will be encouraged by the steadfast love of the Lord and His unchanging ways.
 
Every Blessing,
                Guy
                (Guy Pritchard - Chair of Churches Together in Farnham)

Christian Aid Week Appeal

10th to 16th May 2021

 

This year, with current restrictions affecting street and door-to-door collections, Christian Aid Week is marked by an on-line appeal.  Attention is particularly drawn to the effect of climate changes on areas of Kenya, where drought and flood are causing real hardship.

In support of this year’s Christian Aid Week appeal, the Spire Church, with the help of ministers and members of other Farnham Churches, has produced a moving service, which focuses on the climate emergency which we are all facing. You can enjoy the service through this YOU-TUBE LINK.

The collection will focus on helping local communities to construct dams and catchments to collect water from rainfall and, at the same time, protect communities from flood.

Farnham Foodbank News

For much of the lockdown period and until mid-April 2021, Foodbank Centres in Farnham were closed, with food parcels instead delivered to homes.

On 14th April, Harriet Lanyon, Farnham Foodbank’s Project Manager announced that, from 19th April 2021, the two Farnham Centres will again open for people to come and collect their food parcels.  The centres are at:

Churches Together E-Newsletter

Following the sad passing of Mary Clarke the CTF Steering Committee has decided to cease this publication.  This CTF website will continue to provide a selection of notices, concentrating on those of wide interest to congregations across the town, or of interest to the general public.  Copies of past issues of the CTF E-Newsletter continue to be available for reference - please refer to the “CTF E-Newsletter Archive”.

Churches Together in Farnham A.G.M.
Wednesday 21st October 2020

The CTF Annual General Meeting was built around a “YouTube” video presenting reports on Christian activities serving the people of Farnham and activities arranged by or through CTF.  The video was introduced by Michael McDonnell, CTF Chair for the past year.

The other normal business of the A.G.M was dealt with through an on-line survey.  This elected Guy Pritchard (Farnham Vineyard Church) as CTF Chair for the coming year.

The results from the survey and the contributor’s activity reports are published as the A.G.M. Minutes (2020).  The video can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2HXyjGylg4 -

“Share Farnham” Initiative

On 12th May 2020, two Community Stores opened in Farnham to enable sharing and borrowing items to help adults and children to keep busy and active during the present COVID-19 restrictions. “SHARE FARNHAM” opened from that date with community stores at Farnham Maltings (Bridge Square) and Hale Community Centre (“The Bungalow”).

Stores are manned by volunteers.  Items are donated and include puzzles & board games, books, musical instruments, garden games, sheet music, craft items, DVDs, toys, exercise equipment and cookery equipment.  Donated and borrowed items are quarantined for 72 hours.

If you would like to help, or to donate items, or have any other queries, please call the Farnham Coronavirus Helpline 01252-745446.  For those shielding or self-isolating at home, the Helpline can assist with collection and delivery of donated or borrowed items.

“Share Farnham” is a joint initiative by the Farnham Maltings, Hale Community Centre, Farnham Town Council and the Farnham Herald.
