Latest News - 21st December 

Dear Friends

Well here we are just 4 days before Christmas! A big thank you and well done to everyone who has been involved in some way over the past few weeks at Church, it has been wonderful to see such a huge variety of Christmas events and such a wide range of people coming into the building. From Contemporary Carols and Carols by Candlelight we have already raised over £2000 for our two charities, Caring at Christmas and Tearfund.

Christmas Cards
There is a box in the Church foyer to put your Christmas Cards in, and please do look to check if there are any for you!

Nearly New Clothes Rail
Also, Pre school and toddlers would like to report that over the past term they have raised £105.46 for Emmanuel Hospice, from their nearly new children's clothes rail. Well done!

To keep you up to date, and to communicate a couple of small changes to our calendar, please see below what's going on at Christ Church in the next couple of weeks.
