An information booklet with the outline and vision for the Busbridge church reordering and the benefice wide music worship ministry will be distributed next Sunday, 25th November.  This is an exciting opportunity for the benefice to embrace a fresh dynamic for worship and service.  Intriguing? Do read the booklet.

This afternoon there is the very first drop-in Christmas Crafternoon happening in the Old Rectory from 2.00pm - 6.00pm. Open to all ages (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult), you can bring your own crafts if you’d like or dip into the crafts on offer. Strong rumours of tea and cake too. Do pop in you have a chance and bring out your creative side.

The next ladies’ film night is happening on Tuesday at 7.30 pm and we are now showing The Shack - not The Greatest Showman as previously advertised. It is helpful to know numbers for catering purposes so if you’d like to come along then please email (we’ll let you know the location by return email).

Speaking of all things cinematic, we have a lovely Christmas Marvellous Movie Matinee planned for 2.30pm on Saturday, 8th December at Busbridge Church. In this adaptation of the beloved children's tale by Dr. Seuss, the reclusive green Grinch decides to ruin Christmas for the cheery citizens of Whoville. This event follows after the Busbridge Junior School fair, so why not head over to the church whilst you’re feeling all Christmassy? Invite your friends along to this super afternoon!

The next Churches Together Prayer Breakfast is happening at 8.30am on Saturday, 24th November, in the Hambledon Church Room. All welcome to come along.

The next Squires Lunch will be on Sunday 25th November at 12.15pm. Squires will be doing special Christmas Lunch plus the normal lunch menu will be available as usual that day. We do hope you will be able to join us for an early start to the festive season. For more information please speak to Brian & Pat Oxborough.
