Christmas Day 2018
Food, laughter, gentleness, peace & goodwill

A wonderful lunch took place on Christmas Day for approximately 60 Farnham residents who otherwise would have spent this festive day on their own.

2018 Xmas Day Lunch (2)

This year the celebration took place at a sparkling new venue, the recently refurbished Memorial Hall off West Street, where guests were treated to an excellent two-course meal including roast turkey with trimmings, Christmas pudding and wine.

The event was attended by both the Mayor of Farnham and Mayor of Waverley, who joined the carol singing and socialised with guests and volunteers. This annual celebration is made possible through the generosity and good will of our local community.  This year, support was received from Bourne Show, Hale Carnival, Morgan’s Butchers, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose.

Our chef was Lou Snape and the lunch was coordinated by Churches Together in Farnham.

CTF Annual General Meeting
18th October 2018
 

CTF holds its A.G.M. each autumn.  This year’s meeting took place on the evening of Thursday 18th October 2018 starting at 7:30 p.m and ending by 9:00 p.m, giving those attending a chance to meet each other afterwards over a glass of wine.

The main business of the meeting was to receive brief updates on the wide range of Christian activities that support our local community through the year, and to meet some of those involved.

The A.G.M. was held at St.Mark’s Church in Alma Lane, Upper Hale. The meeting agenda included:

  • The election of officers for the coming year;
  • A brief review of the main activities of CTF during the past year;
  • An opportunity for each of the many organisations associated with CTF to report on their activities; and
  • An opportunity for church leaders, particularly those new to the town, to share their thoughts.

You can download your copy of this year’s A.G.M Minutes from the following link.

“The Spire Church” in Farnham

 

On 2nd September, Farnham's new Spire Church held its inaugural service at Farnham Methodist Church in Farnham town centre.  The new church is a merger of Farnham United Reformed Church and the Methodist Church.

The name for the newly merged “Spire Church” was decided in May 2018, following nearly two years of detailed discussions.

For some time, The Spire Church will use both URC and Methodist church buildings, particularly during the planned major remodelling and refurbishment of the URC building.

Pilgrim Project.  The major work in the URC building is being undertaken as the “Pilgrim Project”.  Consulatation, planning and fund-raising for the project has been in progress since mid-2017 and the work will take place in a sequence of phases.
