Diary Dates


Community Missioner

Graeme Russell has been appointed Community Missioner for Matchborough and he will soon be commencing in post. A few years the Christ Church Community Project obtained a grant from the Council's Changing Futures Fund to assess the needs of the local community through consultation with individuals and community groups. Graeme will be working to identify and prioritise these needs and, working with the church and voluntary and statutory agencies, will set up new projects/initiatives to address them.

We welcome Graeme and his wife, Jackie, to Christ Church and pray that God's blessing will be upon them as they move from Wales and settle into the commnity, and as Graeme beings his ministry with his. Please pray for them both.
