Sunday 26 May 2019

Thank you to everyone who gathered to worship and pray last Sunday when Simon was licensed as Area Dean. It was wonderful to share it as a church family and with Christians from several churches in the area, all of whom commented on the joy, warm welcome and committed faith in Christ that was so evident in those they met.

Latest news on Busbridge Church Reordering

The pews and pine flooring have been removed, and the contractor is due to start works on 3 June.  (3 pews are still looking for a home—contact liz.gorst@bhcgodalming if you are interested).  If you would like a quick look before the contractor starts, the church is open today from 11-11.30am.

We are hugely grateful to the Beatrice Laing Foundation for a donation towards the reordering of Busbridge Church.  Laing (as in the house builders) was founded by a Christian family who wanted their faith to be reflected in their attitude to wealth.

AND, please save the date for the re-opening celebration on Sunday 8 September, 10am.
