CHURCH FAMILY WEEKEND AWAY (1)

We had a fantastic Soccer Aid Event last night with FUSION Youth (Red Team) playing against a willing team made up from members of the Church Family (Blue Team). It was a competitively fought match but the end score was 5:3 to FUSION Youth. 

Thank you to all the players - who were amazing and to the members of the Church Family who came out to support this event. Lots of money was raised for Unicef to help children around the world.

A BIG thank you to Shaun Brazier who was a fantastic referee and to Dave Olive who was the FUSION Manager. 

Here is to next years match! 

WELL DONE FUSION!!

Ukrainian Crisis Our Response: We Care Share a Bear campaign!

We want to give a BIG shout out and a great BIG thank you and well done to the Babies and Toddlers who come along to our weekly Tiny Tots Baby and Toddler group - they have been donating their Teddy bears to the Ukrainian refugee children.  Stephanie Britland (mum to Alice and Noah and daughter to David and Stephanie Ross) kindly put us in touch with the local 'wecareshareabear' project, the idea being that 'something that was loved by our children can be loved again by children who have lost everything.'         

Stephanie delivered some 40 bears to the lady organising the shipment of the soft toys - she was delighted. Please see the facebook screenshot below. 

From the youngest to the oldest we can all be part of something bigger than ourselves and share the love of Jesus in our broken world. 

Well done little ones, you are amazing, Love Alex X

PRAYING FOR UKRAINE 

When faced with a crisis like the conflict in Ukraine, it can be hard to know how to pray. But the desire to pray itself is a great place to start.


Please join us in Church* where we have set up a special prayer station for people to come and reflect and pray about the intensifying crisis in the Ukraine... 

*We will publish specific times and days when you can do this in due course - thank you for your patience... 

PRACTICAL WAYS TO HELP 

There are charities in the local area loading resources onto vans ready to drive to Poland to provide much needed support and relief to Ukrainian families. 

Below is a list of items needed. If you would like to contribute please drop items off at church this week Rupert is then going to kindly take them to the main coordinated drop off point at Castlepoint in Bournemouth.


Please drop items off in the Church porch, in the boxes marked for the Ukraine collection. 

Drop off times: 
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday mornings 9am-11am.
