Richard Beadon Lecture
Saturday 14 July, 2pm – 5.15pm. St James Church Thrapston
Join Bishop John for a special afternoon in July.
It’s an event especially designed to help all of us grow as disciples in the wider world, wherever we find ourselves.Over drinks and canapés, hosted by Bishop John, we will hear from Neil Hudson of the LICC (London Institute of Contemporary Christianity) – a most inspiring speaker. And it’s all free! Please book to let us know how many are coming – so we can make sure there are enough canapés!
NHCT Sponsored Ride and Stride
Saturday 8 September
It is time to get ready to 'Ride and Stride' again as all the churches in our benefice are planning to take part in the annual Ride and Stride day on Saturday 8th September. Churches will be open from 10.00 until 18.00.
Please do consider taking part in either manning the churches or visiting as many churches as you can (they are open all across the country for this one day). You can be sponsored for manning the church as well as for walking or riding between churches. (We had two children last year who rode ponies between Cogenhoe and Brafield rather than the more usual riding a bicycle!)
Money raised is split between our churches and Northamptonshire Historic Churches Trust, who in turn give grants back to churches towards repair bills (and our churches have been recipients of such grants)
We normally supply refreshments at the churches for our visitors. Brafield church is holding a coffee morning on the same day.
Please contact one of our parish organisers to get sponsor forms/ volunteer to man the churches:
