Say Hello to Hallow

(and Grimley & Holt too!)

latest news....

We are making plans for two important events: the joining together of our parish with our neighbours Hallow, Holt & Grimley into a single benefice - and the appointment of a new vicar to work in this new benefice.

 

Shortlisting of applicants will be early October and suitable candidates will be interviewed on 1st November.

 

Broadheath and Hallow will continue to manage their respective parishes under their own Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) with the help of the vicar - and people who have lay ministries will continue their work.

 

The new arrangements may mean some changes to service times but there will also be opportunity for lots of new activity.

 

Members of the various PCCs are working together to sort out the details of how the benefice will work and make arrangements for appointing the new incumbent.

Baptism books bonanza!

We are always delighted to welcome families to Christ Church to celebrate a baptism and welcome a child into Christ's church!

 

To help families with young children settle in we have created some Book Bags full of fun things to keep children occupied - a simple book on a Christian theme; an action figure to play with; crayons and a colouring book. These will be offered along with hymn books and service sheets and hopefully will help parents and children to enjoy the occasion.
