Admission to communion - November 2007

In Sturry and District United Church, confirmation and reception into full membership of the church occurs after the age of 12. We welcome younger members of the church to share in the Holy Communion before they are confirmed, and after a short series of three short meetings to think about Jesus and about the sacrament we welcome them at a special celebratory all-age service of Holy Communion.

Cake sales and Lucky Dip for Christian Aid - May 2007

After the morning service on 20th May 2007, the Seekers and Super Seekers raised money for Christian Aid by selling cakes, selling cards, organising a raffle and a Copper Trail.

The copper trail started from the church porch and gradually extended the full length of the churchyard. Donations from kind neighbours enabled the Seekers copper trail to reach the entrance to the churchyard. More photos on the Christian Aid page.
