Help spruce up the Church Garden - Saturday 25 September

Calling all pruners, weeders, cutting backers... we'll be giving the Church Garden a tidy up, on Saturday 25 September - 9.30am-12pm (or whatever time you can manage that morning). If you're free to help, please let Mark Smith know. Thanks!

Family podcast

Joining the Dots is a podcast that draws on the wisdom of experts to help start the conversation in exploring the context of the child, so that the dots between home, church, community, school, and faith begin to join up. It’s September, so the first series will be looking at schools and the opportunities there are in helping students and staff encounter the good news in the classroom, playground, and staff room. 
Listen from here and also available on Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Audible and Podbean.
