Alton Webteam: November 2015
As an exciting new venture, the GAP churches will be distributing mince pies to train staff and commuters at Alton Railway Station on Monday 14th December 2015.
Commuters will receive a small bag containing a mince pie with a printed napkin detailing the Christmas Services in all our churches and a Christmas greeting.
We estimate that we will need between 500 and 600 mince pies and are asking for donations. Pies should be taken to any of the GAP Churches by lunch time on Sunday 13th December.
If anyone would like to help bag them up on Sunday 13th December, or distribute them on Monday 14th December between 6.40 and 9.15 a.m. please contact Clare Allen — 01420 768641.
