Our first year as a Partner Church with "All We Can" started with our Harvest Festival in September 2017. Throughout the past twelve months we have continued to hold fund-raising events for the "Chirp for Joy" initiative that helps some of the poorest families and communities in Zimbabwe. Our thanks to Cath, David and Jane for all their hard work.

Our final "Chirp for Joy" event of the year was a magnificent tea party held on Saturday 29th September.

Spearheaded by Eileen and a team of amazing volunteers, this event raised the fantastic amount of £1162.92.

The church hall was packed and there was a never ending supply of sandwiches, scones and cakes, tea and coffee.

As well as plenty to eat and drink, there was a raffle, a gift stall and the opportunity to buy cakes to take home.

Our grateful thanks to everyone who baked, helped to set up and clear up, made sandwiches, washed up, waited on tables , publicised the event and did all the other jobs necessary in making the tea party such a glorious event.

Our second year as a Partner Church with "All We Can" beings on Sunday 7th October 2018, when our focus will turn to "Rays of Hope" and solar panels helping to transform the lives of families and communities in Malawi.
