Events: Past & Present

Thanksgiving Service

30th September 2018, 10am

In 2018 we celebrate our 80th Birthday!

To mark this wonderful event we’re having a special service of celebration – we’ll be inviting guests and a having a slice of cake! We’d love for you to join us.

We hope that lots of people who have been connected in some way with the church in the past, perhaps married or christened in the Church, been a member of the choir, or the Sunday school, the Stage Group or the Women’s Friendly (now Wednesday Friendly), will join us to celebrate the past, the present and look forward to the future of the church as it enters a new exciting phase of ministry.

We are looking forward to working in partnership with Emmanuel Parish, to encourage and connect people in the newer and ‘almost built’ housing estates that are growing in this part of the town.

It’s exciting to think that as we do this together we are continuing to explore ways to minister to and serve our local community just as our predecessors did in 1938.

The special Thanksgiving Service will start at 10am at the Good Shepherd Church on Park Road, and will last about 45 minutes. Following the service, there will be delicious cake and tea served from 11:00am in the church hall.

There is also an exhibition of archive material to enjoy with lots of articles and old photographs – like the one printed – will you find yourself in one of them or are you in this one?
