Diary Dates


Community Missioner

Graeme Russell will be commencing in post on Sunday 8th October. A few years ago the Christ Church Community Project obtained a grant from the Council's Changing Futures Fund to assess the needs of the local community through consultation with individuals and community groups. Graeme will be working to identify and prioritise these needs and, working with the church and voluntary and statutory agencies, will set up new projects/initiatives to address them.

We welcome Graeme and his wife, Jackie, to Christ Church and pray that God's blessing will be upon them as they move from Wales and settle into the commnity, and as Graeme beings his ministry with his. Please pray for them both.

We meet at the benches by the pond in Matchborough - refreshments and all necessary equipment is provided.
