THIS MONTH'S  NEWS

Winter may be very much all around us, but there are  many opportunities to get out and meet together for social and fundraising events, fellowship and of course worship in the churches and communities of our Parish of Stour Downs. It’s certainly not a time to hibernate- do have a look at the diary and note all the many ways to bring some colour, warmth and joy to the grey month of February. There’s coffee mornings, Knit and Knatter, Fridays@3, First Fridays, Craft mornings and even a quiz night… Please do get in touch if you need a lift- and you're welcome to bring a friend or two. We do have a variety of services across our Parish led by a talented team of lay leaders, in addition to the Communion services. Again, have a look at the diary, and if you need a lift (especially as the weather can be a bit tricky this time of year), please get in touch.


Save the date!

Keep Saturday March 9th free as we celebrate the first birthday of the Stour Downs with a detective trail around all six of our wonderful churches to discover their hidden delights! There will be morning cake and coffee, lunches and afternoon teas around the parish, and "Pimms and Hymns" to crown the day at 5pm in Smeeth.

COMING SOON...! Breakfast Church on a Saturday morning from 9:15-10:45am. Family fun- craft, story, interactive prayer- and breakfast! Launches at Sellindge on 30th March. Catch it on tour around the six communities in the parish during 2019. Look out for details.  Email office@stourdowns.org.uk for further details

 Blessings

Chris
