NEWS & EVENTS
Fund-raising gets under way
We were delighted to welcome a good number of people from across Dean Court and beyond to our Community Fun Day on
5 October, when we invited the community to help us raise money for the new church.
We enjoyed barbecue food, teas with a lovely selection of cakes, and fruit dipped into a chocolate fountain. There were activities for children, including football on the church games area. The Rocky Mountain Express went round the track collecting money for the church re-building. The amount raised so far from the day is a wonderful £1,000!
The following weekend twins Margaret and Rosemary gave a concert on the Paraguayan harp, supported by the Cumnor Community Choir. They raised £500 for the Rebuilding Project. Well done!
We are grateful to everyone who supported these events in many ways. Look out for more!

Christmas gifts for needy
At our informal carol service on 15 December we remembered God's great generosity to us in sending Jesus. We brought gifts for needy people, to go to the Community Emergency Food-bank and The Gatehouse.
