Nomination forms for Churchwardens and PCC members are at the back of the churches. Please consider prayerfully whether you should stand for these important roles and come and reflect on all that has happened in our churches over the last year and what 2015/6 might have in store.

Life of Christ at Wintershall, Guildford

A message from Sandra Brooks: The  Life of Christ at Wintershall is wonderful opportunity to walk the journey our Lord took. Enjoy the beauty of the Wintershall Estate while you experience the biblical presentation of the life of Jesus. Running from 10am to 4pm, this is a promenade performance in three acts with a brief interval, takes you back in time to Palestine of Jesus’ day. Experience the emotions and events of the Biblical characters and the lasting story. It's a lovely day out where you take your picnic with you and just walk the walk with Jesus through each scene.


It is taking place this year daily from 23rd June to the 28th June; adults are £18.00 and children £9.00. I will place a list at the back of each church and if all who are interested  would put their names down I will contact them. If we have enough interest we could perhaps put on a  minibus or coach. If there are folk with difficulty with mobility I know that they do have 4-seater cabs which I have seen taking people around the site. Details are here>>.
