Prior’s Field Prayer Space Event
Tom Starnes from Busbridge Contemporary/6.30 is also the Head of Religious Studies at Prior’s Field School. Tom is  keen  to set up a Prayer Space event at the school this term, but he'll need quite a lot of help to make it happen! He particularly needs someone who can take on the 'team leader' role. The prayer spaces website describes what this involves:
It is quite a big time there anyone at Busbridge who might be willing and able to do this?
Looking at dates sometime in June (probably not 1st week). If you’d like to get involved or would like to know more, please contact Tom at

On Thursday 3rd May, our very own Pat and Dudley Hilton will share with us their experiences of the beautiful and amazing Galapagos Islands. The isolation of these islands has allowed the preservation of unique indigenous creatures, some of them discovered by Charles Darwin!  Come along and meet the giant tortoise and see dramatic volcanic landscapes and more with Pat and Dudley’s photographic tour of the Galapagos! We meet in Busbridge Church Centre 8.00pm and there’ll be drinks and nibbles before the talk starts.  We very much look forward to seeing you!  All welcome!
