Busbridge Church reopening celebration, 8 September…!
This is a whole benefice service and there are no other morning services at Busbridge, and the 9am Heritage Service at Hambledon will start at the earlier time of 8.30am.  There will be great activities for all our young people during the service, along with an ice cream van and bouncy castles in the Old Rectory.  Lunch will follow the service.

Today we celebrate the reopening of the church after phase 1 of the reordering project.  Phase 2 will start shortly to deliver the improvements to the sound system, lighting and visual facilities.  The lastest TROT (The Re-Ordering Team) update  fully  explains what’s happened, what’s next and what’s needed!
