Learning about the Bible Society

On Sunday we heard from Ollie Durrant about the work of the Bible Society – in China, in Southern Sudan, in the Middle East, in British schools. The Bible Society is one of the organisations which we plan to support as a parish for the next few years. We hope to learn more about its important work of translating and distributing the Bible all over the world. Find out more about the Society.   During the service Vijay played the Indian harmonium and sang a Christian song in Hindi.

Walking round Dean Court

We ended our Summer Fellowship events last night (23 August) with a walk round part of Dean Court, led by Chris Scruby.  We followed some of the ancient boundary paths in this former agricultural area (named after Dean Court Farm) and looked at the old and newest housing.  Then over home-made apple juice and cake we heard more about the history, geography and demography of the area.
