Check the Calendar….
Apart from Sunday services there is nearly always something happening on the church premises (look at ‘church organisations’ and ‘community links’). In addition to regular groups that meet, there are also a lot of ‘casual / ad hoc bookings’ of the premises, so if you are planning to do anything, it is advisable to check the link below…….. it may save you a wasted journey!
Redecoration of the church
Please note that the long-awaited redecoration of the main church (plus porches and minister’s vestry) will begin earlier than anticipated. Scaffolding will be erected in the church from Monday 25th February and most of the re-painting should be completed in time for the music exams to start on 11th March. During this period (probably 2 Sundays at least) our morning services will take place in the church hall.
Sponsored Walk for Christian Aid
I know its not exactly an Immanuel event but worth advertising nonetheless…..
Walking the Wiltshire White Horses
Christian Aid is calling walkers to take part in a very special sponsored event starting on Saturday April 27th and finishing on Tuesday April 30th. The charity is hoping that, starting from Westbury, the walkers will visit Devizes, Broad Town, Pewsey and Alton Barnes, taking in at least seven of the county’s white horses en-route. The walks vary in length from 12 to 17 miles a day. Some walkers may only be able to walk for one of the days, or even part of a day (there will be opportunities to join and leave the route part-way); some hopefully will attempt all four!
Refreshments and a welcome will be provided by Christian Aid supporters along the route and volunteers from Swindon are being asked to provide refreshments, at Broad Town, at the end of day 2 (Sunday 28th April).
Supporters in Devizes thought up the idea of the walk, aiming to raise funds for Christian Aid Week 2019 – which is focussing on mothers in Sierra Leone who suffer from lack of medical support during childbirth. For more info on the theme: https://www.christianaid.org.uk/christian-aid-week
It is hoped that each walker will try to raise a target of £200 (including gift aid) in sponsorship.
To register for the walk please email Bristol@christian-aid.org or call the Bristol Office on 01454 415923.
And if you can help with the refreshments by making a cake or by coming to help at Broad Town please let George and Dorothy Kennedy know on 01793 772589.
How about it? – anyone interested from Immanuel?
