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)

Christmas Lunch 2021

As in 2020, sadly, following a meeting of the CTF Christmas Day Lunch co-ordinating team, it is concluded that it will not be safe to hold the lunch this year

On behalf of the team, Michael McDonnell advised that the decision is, of course, a reflection of the current Covid situation and the uncertain immediate future.

The decision is taken with huge regret and the team has advised all former guests and volunteer helpers.  We all hope and pray for the day when our lives may be Covid free and we can continue with the Annual Christmas lunch.  This has been held for many years until having to be cancelled in 2020.

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.
