Marc Harst our Texan 'Youth & Families Worker' is in the building!!! What a great two years we have in store with this wonderful man...
Don't forget that our new service times begin this coming Sunday!!!
So, it's 9.30am at Loxwood for our All Age Service, and 11am at Alfold for our Traditional Holy Communion. (Plus as usual on the first Sunday of the month we have our 6.30pm Evensong at Alfold).
Our Church Away Day 2017 was epic AND HOT!!! Thank you Lord :-)
It was a joy to be with many churches across the diocese at the cathedral celebrating God and praying for Thy Kingdom Come
How about this for our baptismal font this morning? Looks more like a jacuzzi!
Come to Jesus for rest!!!
We had an awesome first wine tasting. Over 60 came along to taste three Italian wines, although unlike the Biblical wine miracle, we started with the most expensive! Despite that most people preferred the cheaper ones...
Work on the car park in Loxwood is almost complete :-)
A brilliant time was had by all at our first 2017 Men's Breakfast.
Make sure you join us for the next one :-)
Congratulations to David and Amber on their recent Confirmations
...and now for the compulsory sill photo!
Coming up to our 10th consecutive 4pm Informal Family Service. They've been a blessing, both with huge amounts of physical cake, and loads of spiritual food for us to feed off too :-)
For a laugh (at least for Rev Greg):
There's never enough time to visit everyone in the parish! We needed a new tactic. Why not call on The Stig? Pastoral visits have gone up 100% What a parish :-)
Transforming Church, Transforming Lives - today is Launch Sunday for the diocese - check out the video below:
It's official, we've launched our 4pm Sunday Informal Family Service. The Launch last Sunday on the 18th was fantastic, with so many more coming than expected. We ate loads of lovely cake. We sang some energetic songs about God being an awesome creator. We learned that God made us in his image as the pinnacle of his creative work, and made us to have a relationship with him. Please come along this Sunday...
Congratulations to Mal Simmonds and Eleanor lynn, who walked to and from 19 different churches on the Surrey Ride and Stride. In so doing they managed to raise over £400 for the beautiful church buildings we're blessed with - well done!
As of today our website www.alflox.org has gone live - tell all your friends, and have a look at all the exciting new things we're doing as a united parish...
