Notices – w/c 10th December 2017

Church Mission Plan Review

The Members’ Meeting in October received a report from the church elders of the work done so far on the review of the church Mission Plan.  It was agreed that this will be discussed at the next Members’ Meeting on 28th January and that the whole congregation be encouraged to think about and discuss the plan prior to that meeting.


Copies of the Mission Plan will be available after morning worship.  Please do take one, consider the Mission Plan and the questions in the introduction and come along to one of the open sessions to discuss the plan.

There will be opportunity during the coffee morning on Saturday 13th January 2018 to meet with others to discuss the Mission Plan. Please do come along to one of these meetings.


This is an immensely important piece of work that will have a huge impact on the work of Christ Church for years to come.  I encourage everyone to read the document and engage in the conversation about the mission of Christ Church.

Church Charity for 2018

We have supported 3 charities during 2016 and 2017, REAP, Hillingdon Refugee Support Group and U-Can Ask Angels. The money raised will be presented to these groups in early 2018.

Now, we have to look forward to 2018 to consider what charity or charities the members would like to support.

Suggestions please!!  Bring them to me during December so that we can get started for 2018. We will then have all the facts together for the members’ meeting!

Thank you for your support and help
