Community Iftar brings over 100 people to St. Matthew and St. Luke's


Thank you to everyone who came and helped make the Community Iftar on June 2nd such a success. Over 100 people from all across the town came together to share food and celebrate our common humanity. Speakers from the local Muslim community, as well as church representatives and representatives of the Hindu, Jewish and Humanist communities repeated the message "we are far more united than the things that divide us".

The Christmas Journey

It's still a while off, but we're already thinking about Christmas.

Last year we helped tell the Christmas story to over 700 6 and 7 year olds as they went on The Christmas Journey. This year we want to tell it to even more children and are asking for volunteers.

The Christmas Journey this year will be on 28/29th Nov, and 2nd-6th December. We don't expect people to be available for every single day. If you can only help for one morning on one day, we'd still love for you to volunteer. A lot of the new volunteers from last year are already looking forward to this year's journey.

If you, or someone you know, would like to help, or even if you just want to know more about what the Christmas Journey is, please contact Lissa on 01325 312134
