One World Week

October 2005

The only event for One World Week this year was the United Service held at St.Andrew’s Church.  The theme was “Bridges and Promises” — looking at the year which included the “Make Poverty History” campaign.

We were welcomed by Rev.Andrew Tuck and the service, with a moderate size congregation, was led by Roy Graham.  The speaker was Sadie Blankley the chair of the local Christian Aid Group.  A drama “Planet Samaritan” was presented by a group from The Church of the Holy Family and there were presentations from Lucy Myers (All Hallow’s School) on the Make Poverty History Campaign, Fiona Booth and Stephanie Draper on the Farnham Fairtrade Action Network.

There was a retiring collection for the work of Christian Aid.  Our time together closed with a Bring-and-Share tea.
