Xplore 17th June – Gardens and Arts Weekend



On 16th / 17th June lots of Gardens were open in Henfield, some with exhibitions of Art, embroidery,  jewellery and other  crafts.

Other venues hosted musical performances or provided lunch / tea /coffee. 

 So the theme for our Xplore Service on the Sunday morning was “our God-given talents and gifts” and using them to the Glory of God.

Enjoy the pictures!

Our next Xplore will be on 15th July when we shall Xplore the prophet Amos and his plumbline.

Xplore is about rolling up our sleeves, getting stuck in and growing together in faith.

Come along and enjoy some ‘hands-on fun’ whatever your age!

Holy Communion, songs, stories, crafts, drinks and, of course, cake.
