Alton Webteam: November 2016
The church was packed on the morning of 27th November for the Gap service with worshippers from all the GAP churches.
The congregation learned about the work of 'Open the Book' which takes bible stories to Primary Schools in Alton and Holybourne. Currently two schools are visited and several more hope to get 'Open the Book'. The organisers, including Pam Jones, would love to hear from anyone who'd like to join the team.
There was also information about 'Compassion', an organisation that provides child sponsorship in developing countries.
The service was led by Revd. Andrew Micklefield with contributions from several others and Revd. Conrad Hicks gave a rousing and thought provoking sermon reminding everyone that our role in the world is to promote peace and not inward looking nationalistic views of those who are different.
