'RIDE & STRIDE' FOR CHURCHES is on Saturday 14 September 2019.  Visit historic church buildings, see beautiful countryside, get some exercise and have fun.  Good for families too!  Ride+Stride is a sponsored walk or cycle ride, in which people all over England visit as many churches as they can/want to in one day, exploring the countryside from Cornwall to Northumberland.  Money raised helps to fund urgent repairs on these unique churches, chapels and meeting houses.  The event raises over £1 million pounds each year.  Check out the displays in the churches.  To sign up, go to: https://www.rideandstrideuk.org/

LOOKING AHEAD

Pre-Advent Retreat to Walsingham and Julian of Norwich: Monday 25th – Wednesday 27th November.  Please let Rev Jo know if you are interested in going.  At this stage we need to have some idea of numbers to make this viable.  Cost: around £150 which includes dinner, bed and breakfast.
