What are we raising money for?
Two members of our church run a summer camp in Romania for between 40-50 children of the Lupeni & Uricani Orphanages. The children all have very different and very sad stories so the week long camp is a yearly retreat for the children to have fun together and learn more about Jesus. We as a church family are thrilled to be able to support this mission.
We hope you will come along to have lots of cake and lots of fun to support our youth and help us raise money for this cause.
Our presentations of the Easter story to year 5 and year 6 schoolchildren from local schools will be happening during the week of 3 to 7 April 2017.
All sorts of help is needed and, in particular, those gifted in drama for both male and female. If you are free and would like to take part, then please contact Wayne Adams or the church office.
