Vision Launch Event

Drop in at the Beacon café on Saturday 18th September between 10 and 12 to find out the results of the Vision Survey and to see if you can be a part of going forward in our church.

It will have the feel of a ‘Freshers Fair’ with stands laid out so you can take your coffee and sit and chat at each stand. Maybe even sign up to help at one of our new events.

All to broaden what we offer as a one of the churches in the Lower Wye South Hub and hopefully appeal to more people so they can experience Christ in their lives.

Action for Children Garden Party

Keith & Margaret organised a very pleasant ‘CHURCH AFTERNOON GARDEN TEA PARTY’ on Saturday (21st August) and this was well attended in spite of a VERY WET MORNING preceding it …however, the weather cleared after lunch and we all (about 45 of us) sat down for a nice chat followed by scones, cakes and cups of tea! It stayed dry ALL afternoon!

At the conclusion a BUCKET COLLECTION was taken for ‘ACTION FOR CHILDREN’ and this raised £210!!
Many thanks to Keith and Margaret for their hospitality and for being able to enjoy their lovely garden!

Rev Andrew’s Wales Spartan Challenge

Amazing job! Andrew & Jonathan completed the Spartan Challenge in Chepstow today, 20th June. They managed the 10 km run and various strength & endurance tests. Great thanks to the many supporters who turned out to cheer on our “dynamic duo” – Andrew & John were so encouraged.

An absolutely wonderful  £6449 has been raised for Hope in Christ School, Zambia up until today, which will enable them to build a NEW school classroom and will help towards refurbishing the school kitchen & dining room. Along with all at Hope in Christ we give grateful thanks to God and to all of you who have so very kindly and generously supported this project. 

It’s not too late to sponsor them. You can still do so online using your credit/debit card through the link below

Action For Children

The committee is very pleased to report that the Christmas Appeal has just closed and the grand
total collected was….wait for it!!…. £1146.00! Our heartfelt thanks to all who helped us to raise
this magnificent total.
The need for help to families nationwide is as great, if not greater, than it was before the pandemic and this helps us to redress the balance due to our inability to hold any events over the past 9 months.
We hopefully plan to have a celebration of some kind when we can again hold functions…..more of this later.

Messy Church

Christmas Tree Festival

Our festival brought welcome light into the darkness of winter. Many people visited and enjoyed looking at the variety of tree decorations all based on the theme of ‘The Nativity’. You can still come in and see some of the trees which will be displayed all Advent. The white tree was made by Boys Brigade using recycled materials, and was based on scripture which says we should do no harm to our world.

Blue Christmas Service

The Good News this Advent is that God came to walk alongside us in the person of Jesus Christ. This special service on Thursday 5th December was made up of scripture, reflection, prayer & worship, concentrating on some of the challenging issues facing our world and ourselves, often highlighted at Christmas. Brian and Vera introduced each section, gave personal testimonies and led us in prayer, while Cliff connected the whole with an audio visual presentation and live music.
