Church Anniversary Picnic

Home » News » Church Anniversary

On the 15th July it is our Church Anniversary Sunday and a picnic at Hale Church is planned for after the morning service.

Those who wish to attend will need bring their picnic lunch with them to Hale Church ( GU9 0HJ0where they will be welcomed by friends from Hale and Rowledge. The picnic will take place on the grass at Hale Church followed by a walk (optional) to Farnham Park. There are swings and toilet facilities at Hale so it is a great location.

Of course these plans are weather dependent, and if it is wet there will be an indoor picnic in the hall at Alton along with some fun and games! It's hoped that if this happens Hale and Rowledge friends will come to Alton.

It would be helpful to have a rough guide of numbers so could you please let Jill in the office know if you will be there and also whether you will need a lift.
