Alton Webteam: July 2015
August GAP Service
On Sunday 30th August we will be having our joint worship as the Greater Alton Project — that is all four churches of the Parish of the Resurrection and Alton Methodist Church. This time we shall join together at 10.30am at Beech Village Hall.
The service will be led by Revd Keith Underhill and Revd Andrew Micklefield. It will be a more informal act of worship with children included in the service and everyone is encouraged to come along. The service will be followed by a simple shared lunch. Sarah Neish has very kindly offered to make quiches for everyone and those attending are asked to bring any salad dishes/accompaniments or puddings. Drinks will also be provided.
It is always good to come together united in our faith and mission. I hope to see many there despite it being a busy weekend with the Jigsaw Festival taking place and the Civil War re-enactments.
With every blessing
Revd Andrew Micklefield
