Thank you to the Hampden Ensemble for a dramatic and most enjoyable Spanish themed concert in July which raised a magnificent total of over £1600 for our fabric fund! It was a marvellous evening. The music was sumptuous, and the organisation and refreshments were wonderful as ever. Thank you to everyone involved for another triumph!
We have launched the fundraising appeal for our 2020 Vision project as we approach our 800th Anniversary next year. This is an exciting opportunity to preserve our church's heritage whilst making it feel much warmer, lighter and more comfortable for us all. Our plans are still developing. We need you to get involved by praying for our vision, supporting us in fundraising, and working alongside the dedicated team who are delivering the vision for our church as a place of meeting between God and his people. To find out more pick up a leaflet or look online at www.greathampden.org.uk/2020. To get involved please speak to one of the clergy, Tony, Val or Roger.
During our service a collection is often taken to support the life of this church. If you don’t already give regularly you can support us by contributing to the collection, or by using the new contactless donation box near the door as you enter or leave the church. The default gift amount on the contactless box is £5. To give regularly please take a Parish Giving Scheme leaflet from next to the box.
In the Autumn we will be helping people to explore, deepen and understand their faith better. We will be running short courses for adults and young people. These are for anyone who would like to deepen their faith and spiritual life, but are particularly appropriate for anyone who would like to explore confirmation or begin to take Holy Communion. Please speak to Deiniol, Nigel or Kevin if this is something you'd be interested in pursuing. We're expecting Bishop Alan to come to conduct confirmations on Sunday, February 2, 2020.
