News


Many of you will remember with affection Canon Margaret Clarke who died peacefully on 14th September.

Margaret came from Wells, Somerset, trained in Bristol and began lay ministry in Wells in 1968. Margaret's long association with the Easthampstead began in 1974 when she was appointed Parish Deaconess, a lay role which ended with the ordination of Women. Margaret was ordained deacon in 1987. In recognition of her long service Margaret was made an Honorary Canon of Christ Church in 1990. She was ordained priest in 1994 and retired later that year. Since then Margaret has exercised a retirement ministry at Holy Trinity, Bracknell. Margaret died surrounded by her friends having received the Last Rites. Details of Margaret's funeral will announced when available.


UP AND COMING EVENTS


LEADING OUR CHURCH INTO GROWTH

A new course has started, a course to explore principles in church growth and to develop a plan to lead our church into growth.  There will be five more meetings for everyone. Nobody expects everybody to have all the answers right now. The course is a process, a journey that we are all taking together. By the end of it, our hope is that our church will have been transformed, so that the desire for growth becomes a natural part of what we do collectively and as individuals.
