Miles for Refugees

Northchurch mum, Jennie D'Urban is taking part in Miles for Refugees. Her goal is to run 108 miles, the distance from Calais to London, to help the British Red Cross continue supporting refugees in the UK. This distance reflects part of a journey that a refugee may have taken to reach safety. Through Miles for Refugees, every mile Jenny clocks up during September will help to support some of the most vulnerable people in the UK. Please donate to this amazing cause and read more about Jenny's story here.

A tribute to Thokozani Poswa

As some of you may have already heard, Thokozani Poswa, the director of Phakamisa sadly died last month after contracting Covid-19. She had been director since November 2013. Those of you who were able to meet her during her trips to the UK will remember her infectious enthusiasm for Phakamisa and her wish to spread the love of God to all she met. She was so grateful to the supporters in this country and wanted to share the work of the project as widely as possible. So much so that she willingly travelled to the UK despite never having flown or even been outside of South Africa before her first trip to the UK. She didn’t however enjoy, or get used to, the lower temperatures in this country!

Bike 'n Hike - Saturday 12 September 2020

The Bike 'n Hike will be very different this year as you will see from the below poster. Most churches will not be open and there will be no, or very few, refreshments. No signing in and we must maintain social distancing. We are recommended to carry our own food and drink, though I think it may be possible to buy drinks at some public houses and use their facilities. We need to take our own hand sanitiser etc, as you will see from the poster. Brian and I intend to go out, although, depending on lockdowns etc, it may turn into a figure of eight so that we can pop home for a quick snack and back out again. Please do see what you think and we really hope to find you on the route somewhere doin
