CTF Annual General Meeting
18th October 2018
 

CTF holds its A.G.M. each autumn.  This year’s meeting is planned for 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 will be 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. will be held at St.Mark’s Church in Alma Lane, Upper Hale. The meeting agenda includes:

  • 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 Agenda 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.

Revd.Jacqueline Drake-Smith - new Vicar of Wrecclesham

At 7:30 p.m on the evening of Tuesday 13th March 2018 at St.Peter's Church, Beales Lane, Wrecclesham, the Revd.Jacqueline Drake-Smith will be instituted as the new Vicar of Wrecclesham Parish.  The Collation, Induction and Installation Service will be conducted by Bishop Andrew.  Everyone is welcome.

Revd.Drake-Smith

Revd. Drake-Smith comes from St.John The Evangelist Church in Merrow.  She was previously a churchwarden at St.Francis’ Church (Westborough Guildford), from where in 2012 she started two years of full-time training at Ripon College, coming to Merrow in 2014.

She was ordained 2015 and then served as the Assistant Curate in Merrow.

Jacqueline was born and educated in Guildford and has spent most of her life in the area.

Commenting on her move to Wrecclesham, Jacqueline said:

“I am delighted to be writing to you as your ‘nearly-there’ new Vicar.  From when I first stepped into St.Peter’s beautiful and warm space I knew there was something very special about the Spirit of this place, this parish.  I continued to come along and pray and, each time I visited, I felt greater sense of wanting to know more.  I look forward to sharing the joys and fun and the tougher not-so-fun times that inevitably come along on this winding road of faith.  I feel very grateful, and trust that we have some exciting times to come, when we can build on the great things already happening at St.Peter’s, build up our common life together – and do the best we can to flourish and grow and be a blessing for the community we serve and who bless us in return.”
