Letter from the Vicar

Dear Friends

What’s On at St. Paul’s Church?

St. Paul’s is an exciting church to be a part of as there’s always so much going on. In October we celebrated God’s goodness to us with two big harvest events – a harvest supper plus beetle drive and a harvest breakfast followed by a special service at which we were joined by a number of the local uniformed organisations (Rainbows, Brownies and Scouts). At the end of October we were joined by Nigel and Molly Watts from Precept Ministries who specialise in teaching ordinary people how to read the Bible for themselves. Over the coming months we have a large number of events including our annual Pantomime (November 24th at 7pm & November 25th at 2.30pm and 7pm) and the Christmas Market (2nd December, 10am to 2.30pm). Then it won’t be long before we’re celebrating Christ’s birth at our many Christmas services.

We run all these events to celebrate God’s goodness to us and to share the good news that Jesus is the Lord and Saviour of the world. We think these events and services are so great we want as many people as possible to know about them. So we have recently updated the church website – it’s now mobile friendly and will look best on a smart phone – and we’ve recently launched a new Facebook page. Our Facebook page is one of the best ways to keep in touch with what’s going on in the life of St. Paul’s, so if you’d like the latest news please ‘like’ and ‘follow’ our page at www.facebook.com/stpaulschurchcanfordheath. You can find our new website here:

One of the benefits of having a Facebook page is that it makes it so much easier for you to invite people to events at St. Paul’s (assuming you’re on Facebook of course). When you ‘like’ or ‘share’ one of our posts all your Facebook friends will get to see it too.

Whether you’re online, on Facebook or not, Christmas is one of the best opportunities to invite people to Church events and to share the good news about Jesus with those you know. What can you do this year to make the most of this God given opportunity?
