Sunday morning services 26th September 2021
This will be our harvest celebration and this year our money collection that day will go to the work of the food larder.  If you want to give by bank transfer, please title the extra gift as Harvest.  If you want to bring food they ask for tins of fruit, vegetables, soup, fish and meat.  They also need packets of cereal, pasta and rice.
 
Volunteers needed
We have need of volunteers for a number of our ministries.  If you would like information about where you could help, please pick one or more of the information sheets on the tables in Christ Church.

Sunday Morning Services from now to the new year 

The PCC had a good meeting (August 2021) and one of the decisions we made for a variety of practical reasons was that the 9am and 11am services will remain at Christ Church for the remainder of this year at least.  I want to make it clear on behalf of the PCC that this in no way assumes that this will be the final destination of the 9am service.  The PCC committed itself to research, to consulting the wider congregation and most importantly to prayer.  The time, effort and prayer that is being put into this decision shows how important we think it is that we get the final decision right.  Thank you to those who have already talked to me, I am always happy to listen.  I hope in the autumn we will set aside a time for all our congregations to have an opportunity to meet together and ask any questions they want to.

Sunday Afternoon Service for Families 

You are invited to our Sunday afternoon service starting Sunday September 12th from 4.30pm to 5.45pm at St Andrews Church, Hampton Pier Avenue  CT6 8DY.  There will be time to learn together as a family, children’s activities, adult time to think, afternoon tea and much more. 

Please join us but if you need more information contact Anthony at vicar@parishofhernebay.org.uk or ring/text 07599 608041.  We hope you can join us for this fortnightly time together.  Dates will be available for the autumn on the 12th. 

Sunday at 7pm at Christ Church 

These services are usually a café style service where we sit around the tables at the back of church and have some input and an opportunity to discuss with others.  We look at topics, a Bible book, or a contemporary issue.   We seek in these services to allow a good opportunity for interaction and learning.  Refreshments served from 6.45pm.  

Occasionally on a Sunday evening we might have an informal breaking of bread, testimony service or Taizé style service.  

Our next service is on Sunday 5th September and then fortnightly afterwards.
