The HuB@St Stephen’s Church Newport ….. AND GILBERDYKE!!
The church is currently TEMPORARILY closed, except for weddings/funerals/baptisms. It is a much loved church, but no longer has attendees on Sundays! Please do support the church financially in any way you can because it still has bills to pay and repairs to the building. It is well loved in the villages and used for family rites of passage.
We had a massive response to the Memory Christmas Tree in memory of Kai. Also, on New Year’s Eve, 28 people ventured out into the cold to light candles for loved ones lost in the past year.
The plan is to reopen in late June with new ways of being a ‘community HuB church’ :
- ‘BizkitsnBrew’ is a place for parents/carers and preschoolers to meet;
- there is a planned community choir; bookclub;
- regular children’s events and ideas for different more modern ways of “being church” , not on Sunday mornings!
I AM CURRENTLY SEEKING 7 PEOPLE WILLING TO TAKE A DAY EACH WEEK TO OPEN UP THE CHURCH AND LOCK IT DAILY ( 10-4) TO ALLOW PEOPLE TO COME IN AND JUST SIT AS THEY WISH. THE CHRUCH IS FOR THE PEOPLE!
