Coronation Celebrations

Thank you to Jill G, Elaine S and everyone who helped make today’s celebration lunch such a success.

Thank you to those who helped set up the halls yesterday and for the display of photographs, to all who provided food and to the musicians.

It was lovely to share together.

Special events

Special events

On Saturday 10 September, many of us are attending the East Midlands Synod celebration to mark the 50th Anniversary of the formation of the United Reformed Church. (The URC was formed with the union of the Congregational Church in England and Wales with the Presbyterian Church in England. In 1981, most of the Churches of Christ in the UK also joined the union.)

On 2nd October, we have a special service followed by a congregational lunch as our own celebration of this milestone in the life of our denomination.

We have our Harvest Festival Service on 16th October and our Commitment for Life service on 30th October.
