Be Thou my vision

Christ Church Summer Camp 7 – 9 July.

Everyone is welcome to join some or all of our church camp weekend at the Scarisbrick guide camp site.

Once again we have tried hard to provide something for everyone. With family games and sport, separate children, youth and adult seminars on Saturday morning, cream tea, campfire sing a long, barbecue, we are praying for a fantastic weekend together.

In fact the only thing that could make it better would be if YOU come too!

We welcome back the wonderful Emily Stanford, this time with a colleague from YKids, and also have seminars from Peter Partington and Olly Elliott, associate minister at St Peter’s Harold Wood in Essex, all joining us to help us see God’s vision for ourselves, our church, and the world around us.

Some of our young people are also being baptised in the lake on the Saturday afternoon.  Full details of programme to follow but please book early to help us with catering.

Booking forms available in church or speak to Sarah, Jane Lake, Debs Raynor, Karen Roberts or Fiona Craig, and any offers of help over the weekend on in the run up will be very much appreciated.

Do you best to the Simon Guillebaud!

We are delighted to welcome Simon to the Ministry Centre on Tuesday, 4 July.

A missionary who has spent many years in Burundi, Simon is much in demand as a speaker and has a significant worldwide following through his dramatic blogs. He is also author of More Than Conquerors and Dangerously Alive.

Sharon’s book launch this Tuesday

Sharon Moughtin-Mumby, daughter of Ross and Jacqui, has published Diddy Disciples, worship and storytelling, with SPCK.  Endorsed by Archbishop Justin, it is being launched this Tuesday in London.

Giving to Christ Church
If you are considering supporting Christ Church through planned financial giving, please see one of the wardens (Jaime Craig, David Dennison, Jenny Rawcliffe and Ann Roberts,) who will advise you what to do. Alternatively, you may enquire at the parish office or speak with Neil Heyes, the PCC treasurer. 

Our charity number is 1129036. If you give cash in the offering, please consider using one of the blue envelopes at the back of church for one-off gifts.  It simply means that we can probably increase your offering by 25% through Gift Aid.  Please write your name – otherwise we cannot claim a tax refund. If you use these regularly, it would probably be easier to belong to the envelope scheme.  Contact Jen Ray (421671).

You may support our ministry financially by sending a text to 70070. Just text CCAX99 £aa, where aa is the amount to be given.
