Easter Art Exhibition

Newhaven Church Connections Café will be hosting an Easter art exhibition from the 2nd-30th April. We are looking for paintings, drawing, and photographs that illustrate the following themes: Hope, Resurrection, Redemption, and Faith. Items may be priced so sell, although they do not need to be. Items must be framed and must be labelled with the artist and category on the back. You are welcome to submit up to three items. Please contact Cassie.Abousamak@gmail.com if you wish to display your work in this exhibition.

Annual Stated Meeting Sunday 17th March 2019

The Annual Stated Meeting will take place directly after morning service on Sunday 17th March 2019. This year the format will differ slightly from previous years. The annual accounts will be received on the 17th but a separate meeting, to be fixed, will look at both the annual report of the church’s activities and vision for the future.

Copies of the accounts are now available from the church foyer.
