Fundraising for Kampi Update

Welcome news from Colin MacNeill on Newhaven’s fundraising efforts for Kampi:

We raised a total of £1,407 for the Kampi Child Care Centre from both the Ceilidh last night and the retirement offering at Church today. A wonderful sum of money from a very generous congregation. This will go towards Newhaven Church’s commitment to support the annual running costs of the Child Care Centre, and will mean that, for another year, disabled children in the Kampi area will be cared for, treated, schooled and given the same opportunities as their able bodied brothers and sisters.

Many thanks go to Colin and Jen for organising the Ceilidh and to all those who contributed to making the evening so enjoyable.

Newhaven Running Club

Newhaven Running Club is a group of like minded people of varying ages and capabilities, who join together most Sundays after worship.
This is an organic group that has grown from a few members chatting during coffee after church about a shared interest, and is open to anyone who has an interest in running and/or exercise.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to attend. Participation is optional, come along to watch, be our timekeeper or show us how it’s done…..
We meet in the church garden (after coffee) for a couple of warm up exercises then those who wish can go for a wee run around the parish.
Please note this is an informal group with no qualified teacher but we all share our ideas and experience.
Mostly it’s a great opportunity to get a little fitter or stronger whilst getting to know each other better and of course having fun together!

Hope to see you soon.
