Churn Branch Fundraising Initiatives

The Churn MU have been very active with their fundraising in November, involving all generations.

Churn branch Toddle
On 2nd November we held a sponsored TODDLE around St. Michael’s Church, Blewbury. 7 babies and pre-school children from our benefice Pram Service took part and had a great time on a sunny Autumn afternoon. The local press and village photographer recorded the event for us. Every time the children circled the church they collected a “well-done” sticker and at the end were awarded a certificate. With the help of our benefice congregations and the families involved, we have collected £500 for AFIA.Churn branch Toddle

 

 

 

 

Churn branch Winter WarmerOn 26th November we organised a “Winter Warmer” lunch at Upton Village Hall to raise funds for MU overseas projects. Members prepared six different home-made soups – all delicious- served with crusty bread and warm mince pies. We had over 40 guests; MU members, church and village people, such a friendly mix enjoying the company and supporting the projects MU undertakes across the world. Pat Weeks came along with MUe and with lunch donations, raffle and a craft stall, £300 was raised.Churn branch Winter Warmer

Verse of the Day

“[The birth of Jesus foretold] In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.’” — Luke 1:26-28 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica. Powered by BibleGateway.com.
