Churches in the Partnership

Christian Aid

Saturday, May 9th 2009, also marks the first anniversary of the launch of The Southern Edge Mission Partnership. The Anniversary Walk which takes in all our church buildings aims to strengthen our unity but more importantly offers an opportunity for mission. Why not invite some friends along, it’s a good way to talk along the route and give the dog some exercise! You can do as much or as little of the walk as you choose but do please join us. It’s also an opportunity to open your church for the day and invite in the community to have a look around and give them an opportunity for space and prayer.Whatever your involvement, do please pray for the work of the SEMP and all our churches. For itinerary see calendar below.
As part of the Anniversary Stroll there will be a stop at St John's at around 15:15. Please join them for a cup of tea to support Christian Aid. They will be ready with the kettle boiled :o)
