Refresh Praise
We will be gathering on Zoom again this coming Sunday evening, 28th February at 7pm when Rev Tom Coopey will be leading our time together. It will also be an opportunity to worship God, give thanks for all He is doing and pray together for our towns and communities.

Details for the Zoom meeting from Cherry Clarke.

Share the Easter Story and Support Fairtrade
The 2021 Fairtrade Real Easter Egg range has moved online as supermarkets have failed to make space for the UK's only egg which shares the Easter story.

All Real Easter Eggs come with an Easter story in the box. The stories range from simple guides to a 24-page activity book version with a prize competition worth £200. They provide an opportunity to share the joy of Easter with friends and family. The 2021 Original Real Easter Egg includes a new 24-page Easter story activity book. It features a rainbow design to remind us of the importance of working together, in amazing and inspiring ways, for the common good. It costs £4.50 and is delivered in multiples of six or as singles.

David Marshall, from The Meaningful Chocolate Company, a regular exhibitor at Christian Resources Exhibition, said: "We have supplied supermarkets since 2010. Last year, with Easter at the start of lockdown, the supermarkets had a disastrous time as people stayed away from high streets. This year, supermarket buyers were told to cut brands and this has included The Real Easter Egg. So if you are one of the 80,000 people who usually buy a Real Easter Egg from Tesco, Waitrose, ASDA or Morrisons then go online and order direct from www.realeasteregg.co.uk."
