NEWS AND EVENTS

 

SONIA and ANDY NUNN – After hosting and leading a fortnightly homegroup in their home for 9 years, the time has now come for them to bring this group to an end.   Their children are getting older and involved in more activities which clash with the meeting and wont be going to bed as early.   It is time for them to put the family first.  Thank you, so much Sonia and Andy for opening your home for fellowship and sharing God’s word for so long.  Also, thanks to Alicia and Alexander for putting up with rushed tea times and missing out on things because of the homegroup.  I am sure there will be life-long friendships among members of your group.    Geoff

 

BIBLES FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL LEAVERS –If you sponsored a Bible, please give your money to Margaret  (cheques to ‘Boughton Monchelsea PCC’ )

 

MISSION GRANTS 2015 -  If you were not in church, I am delighted to tell you that the Diocesan Mission Resources Group is awarding us a grant of £10,000 over three years towards the overall costs of the  training of our Youth Intern Luke McCarten.  It also affirms the faith of our PCC.     Geoff
