Bring your non perishable food donations for Jimmy's Night Shelter to our 10am Harvest Service, as we give back some of what we've been given! Harvest Lunch follows the service, bring a contribution and tuck in to a feast, with traditional music to complete the festivities. All are welcome, church-goers or not, to come along and help to continue the long standing tradition of celebrating the harvest.
At St Andrew's come and join in the Prayer Breakfast on Saturday 8:30am. Free breakfast and a chance to hear a Chaplain from Addenbrookes talk about 'Prayer at Times of Illness'.
On Saturday afternoon a prayer walk begins at St Andrew's at 2:30pm. We'll walk through the village remembering before God everything we see, arriving at St James, Wulfstan Way by about 3:30. After a stop there, we'll carry on to St John's, Hills Rd, where we can join the families at Messy Church for tea. 2.6 miles one way, add on a shorter route back for a 5 mile round trip walk with plenty of refreshment.
The other churches have many more activities over the weekend. Please see their websites for all the details.
The Church looks up at Ascension!! .... come and celebrate with wonderful music and a glass of fizz afterwards.
Cherry Hinton's Robin Greenwood (Head of Programme Delivery at Christian Aid) will speak during the church service and Pansi Katenga, who leads the work of Christian Aid in Malawi, will be our guest speaker after lunch. Lunch is free, but donations equal to the cost of your usual Sunday lunch requested. Lunch begins at noon, and everyone is welcome to come to the service, the lunch, or both!
On Good Friday morning the church will be full of Easter activities. Families welcome to drop in at any point between 10 and 12 to experience something of the Easter story, or just to chat over tea and hot cross buns. At noon there will be a big egg hunt in the churchyard (weather permitting!) This is a free event. Children must be accompanied by an adult!
Tonight we re-enact the events of the Last Supper through to the arrest of Jesus. The evening begins with a jolly bring and share supper in the main body of the church to which everyone is welcome. During supper there will be an opportunity to have your feet washed. After a break for after dinner tea/coffee, the service will resume at 7:30 with Communion, followed by the stripping of the altars. We will disperse, as Jesus' friends once did, in silence and fear. Yet some will stay on, keeping vigil till the end of this day at the candlelit side altar. Feel free to join at any point of the evening, and to leave.
