Newsletter

We hope you had a safe and peaceful Christmas.  Should you need help during the current lockdown, please contact Revd Mike, who will be able to help or advise on who to contact.  Keep safe and well.

Thank you so much for thinking of us here at CAP and for your generous donation of £200 towards our work here in Romsey.  It means so much when we receive support like this from other local churches.  God bless and thanks again. Jo, Christians Against Poverty

ISRAEL/PALESTINE APPEAL
Despite our inability to have the usual connection with other members of the fellowship, the church has been able to send £303.42 for the URC overseas work ‘Commitment for Life’. In addition, our Christmas Appeal for the planting of Olive Trees in Palestine ‘Keep Hope Alive’ has raised £811.25.  Thank you very much for that. We have received a few calendars and leaflets which explain how the money is spent. For anyone who would like copies please ask Geoff P.
