Church Cottage renovation update: Following the completion of decoration at Church Cottage, appliances have been moved and fitted into their final places. After some water issues during heavy rain we have now reached the significant milestone of being able to fit carpets and vinyl. It is feeling much more cosy and habitable now.

Our first Hambledon Ladies Breakfast for this year is on Saturday 9th February at West Surrey Golf Club. Tickets on sale at Hambledon Village Shop from 21st Jan - 5th Feb. We like to encourage and inspire each lady that comes along and there is always a delicious breakfast to eat! Our speaker this time is Annie Sneller and she will share with us how her faith permeates and gives to her in all her daily life and work. Do come - try us out if you haven‘t before- we’d love to see you (any queries, phone Jacqui Rook on 01428 684390).

Godalming-based ukulele band You Ukes will be performing in Busbridge Church at 2.00pm on Friday 18th January. There will be opportunities throughout the afternoon to sit back and listen, to sing along and even have a go at playing a ukulele yourself if you wish! This event is part of the Prime Time programme, but as ever – all are welcome to attend. It’s the ideal feel-good event to help banish the winter blues! Tickets are £3 per person which includes legendary Prime Time tea and cake. For further details or to book a place contact the Prime Time Team at the Church Office or email

A reminder that the Hambledon prayer breakfast is on Saturday 19th January in the Hambledon Church Room, all welcome.
