Congratulations to Rev. Bernard Fidder!

Congratulations to Reverend Bernard Fidder on his calling to the joint pastorate of St Andrew’s URC, Canterbury and Sandwich URC. The ordination takes place in September 2018 and some of the Christ Church Congregation will be travelling to take part in the service, as well as looking forward to seeing both Bernard and Ada. Many of you will remember Ada from her work serving in the cafe on Tuesdays (inbetween her eco work, including Kent Amphibians Group), Bernard from his initial training year here and his Prayer days and other training events as the Spiritual Development Officer for WKESSA. Both Bernard and Ada have worked together through Dunamis, including arranging courses at Ashburnham Lodge.
We ask for many more blessings on them as they settle into their new life, new job and new home.

Join us here on New Years Eve! 10am, 6pm -midnight

We have our usual service at 10am and all are welcome. See later for times and details of the evening service.

Now is a good time of year to be looking at those things niggling at us and perhaps giving them up. It is very easy to make superficial resolutions to stop this or that, but sometimes it is our whole life that needs to go in a new direction.

Many people are seeking something and this is often spiritual – but in our rush to find some new meaning in an alternative way we can overlook the obvious – the God of all the Ages – who was and is and is to come.The miracles of the New Testament are not confined to the New Testament, but still seen here in Tonbridge. The stories of lives changed or or people healed (on Big Bridge & elsewhere) the Holy Spirit has never been more present and live.

Come and have a chat to us – or others in the building. Come and spend some of your New years Eve with River Church 6pm-9pm or with Pastor Charles 9pm-midnight and find out what God has planned for your life in 2018!
