Our Benefice Project for 2017
Starfish Asia -
This year’s project revisits Starfish Asia, whom we supported in 2011, raising £4,000 (well over our projected target) to equip a school for brick kiln workers.
This time we are helping to furnish and supply three schools with desks and chairs, providing access to drinking water for all students, and providing uninterrupted power supply to ensure that classes have fans and lights even when the power fails.
The project closes at the end of November. To date over £2,800 has been given to Starfish Asia and some new desks and chairs are already being used.
You can find out much more information about the charity by looking at:

The Benefice Choir goes from strength to strength under the Musical Directorship of Ken Sherring, and their voices have been much appreciated at various Benefice Services.
Meetings are generally on the first Saturday of each month from 10:00am, and weekly on Saturdays leading up to a service or concert at which the choir is due to sing.
No auditions are held, although it is helpful if members can read music, and
Ken can often supply MIDI files for those who find them helpful.
