2020 Vision

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.

Contactless Donations

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.

Deepening Faith and Confirmation Preparation

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.

Thank you from Nigel

A huge, huge thank you to you all for making last weekend so special. I have been completely overwhelmed by your cards, emails, gifts - and above all, your prayers. To see so many of you in the congregation at Eton College Chapel and to have the privilege of serving at the Eucharist there was amazing. Then to preside at my First Mass last Sunday was something else. I cannot put into words how blessed I felt. There are so many people I’d like to thank, but for now let me thank Deiniol for his excellent training, Jean for arranging the coach to Eton, and SEARCH for the fizz and canapés. To be part of such a loving and supportive church family means so much. May God richly bless each one of you. Nigel
