New Wine United 22 and Luminosity

Report from Weymouth Beach Mission 2021
Thank you for letting us stay in the Baptist Church while we aimed to reach out to the holiday makers on the beach. We had a very encouraging week, better than we have had for a number of years. The glorious weather we had certainly helped but we felt the Lord's presence throughout. I have attached the report we have put together for your interest and encouragement.

World Café will be restarting from 30th September on Thursdays from 10.30-12 noon in St Aldhelm's Church front lounge, Spa Rd.
Please pass this information on to anyone you know who would like to meet up with others who were born outside of the UK and of any faith or none.
Volunteers are welcome any week - there is no rota. The principle requirement is a willingness to chat and consume coffee and tea!

Lots more information can be found on the website.

The Nest

The NestThe Nest Community Shop is being given the wonderful opportunity of opening a café at The Waverley in the heart of Westham.

We are looking for volunteers who would relish the chance to use their gifts of cooking, baking, serving, chatting or helping in any way to make this a successful venture.

If you think you could help and contribute then please contact Neil Hardisty for more details. We look forward to hearing from you

Harvest FestHarvest Celebration

Just for this month Refresh Praise will be slightly different. We are joining with God's Green Fingers, a church led project at Tumbledown Farm, and The Big Green Week at St Aldhelm's Church Centre for a family celebration of harvest. The afternoon will begin with a time of family worship at 3pm to give thanks for God's goodness and all the gifts that he gives us. 

This will be followed by games and activities and a market stall where you can bring excess produce that you have grown and bags and baskets will be made up so that members of the community, neighbours and those we know can be blessed. Drinks will be provided but if you would like to join in with a picnic, please bring your own

This will go ahead even if it's raining!
