Alton Webteam: June 2015
Evening service 5th July 2015.
As you may well be aware by now, the Own Arrangement Service that is shown on the Circuit Preaching plan here at church on 5th July is no longer applicable as we will be joining in with a town-wide ecumenical service held at the Harvest Church that evening at 6:30pm.
The preacher will be the Revd Andrew Micklefield.
After the success of the joint ecumenical service back in January to mark the Week of prayer for Christian Unity, it was felt that we should meet together more often for worship.
Unfortunately, this decision was made after our current preaching plan was made, so Keith will be unable to attend as he has an evening service that day at Frimley Green.
