Sunday 2 December

Did you know that over the course of last week, more than 280 people used or visited the Old Rectory and Centre? It wasn’t even a busy 7 day period! Find out more about what’s happening in the Old Rectory as well as the future of our worship - in terms of music-worship  ministry and the invitation to offer your views on changes to the worship space in Busbridge Church - in the special brochure available in all services this weekend with a special prayer event for it on 4th December and a Q&A session on 9th December in Busbridge Church.

A wonderful new initiative is starting in the new year - Sing it out! This is a new choir which will meet in Busbridge a couple of Wednesdays a month (9.30am - 11.15am) to which you are welcome and encouraged to bring your children. Enthusiastic singers who don’t have young children also welcome! There will be toys and refreshments available. For more information, please go to

Help show God's love this Christmas by getting involved with the Christmas Besom hampers. If you would like to help pack and/or deliver hampers please contact Jo Cookes. Packing takes place on 13th December with deliveries on 15th and 16th December. 

Busbridge Church Centre has been turned into a giant Advent Calendar, with a new picture appearing in the window every day. Come along at any time to see what local groups and individuals have created.

Channel for Mission are delighted to introduce Guildford Besom as this Christmas’s Mission Partner. Come and hear members of Besom talk about their mission and the opportunities available to us all at the Church services on 9th December. Gift envelopes will be available in all services from next week.

The Alpha course starts on January 9th in the Old Rectory. Please be praying and thinking about who you could invite; invitation cards are available in all services.

Ladies of Busbridge&Hambledon - before you do a pre-Christmas clear out of your wardrobes...STOP! Or in the unlikely event that you get a Christmas present of the clothing variety that’s ‘not really you’...FEAR NOT! For in the New Year we will be having another Swap ‘til you Drop event, where you can swap those unwanted but perfectly lovely (but just not for you) items of clothing, scarves, shoes or jewellery for things that look just fab. It’ll cost you nothing and you’ll leave the evening even more glamorous than when you arrived. The date is yet to be confirmed but we’re thinking February. Start collecting your things now...
