Lent Course and Ghanaian meal!

The following reminders come from Rev Linda Porter: We will be running a Lent Course again this year.  It will take place on a Tuesday evening from 7 0’clock at the Exchange, Brighstone, commencing 3rd March when we will enjoy a film evening together, ‘The Greatest Showman’, on which this year’s course is based. Thereafter, […]

Not another interregnum!

As most of you will be aware, Rev Clive is leaving us at the end of the month to take up a new post in Lincolnshire. We are all very sorry to be preparing to say goodbye, although we will of course be wishing him well in his new post. There will be a farewell […]

Friends Newsletter 2

We had 95 punters through the doors, and with ticket sales, donations for refreshments and private donations towards the cost of putting on the event meant that we raised just over […]
