We are delighted our long-term mission partner and friend Ian Harvey as our guest speaker at St Helen’s tomorrow at 10am.  He will also be at Kids Worship at 3.30pm.

Ian heads up the Congo Children’s Trust and the Kimbilio Project supporting incredibly vulnerable children in Lubumbashi – the second largest city in the DR Congo. We’ve been partners with Ian in this work for over 15 years and he will be sharing the progress made since Richard and Linda visited in 2019, including the opening of the school which we generously supported.  He will also share the plans for a new, purpose-built day centre.  Bring your wallets and purses because there will be a stall selling Congolese goods and an opportunity to donate to the project.




If you can’t join us in church, please join us online.  Click here or on the image above for the YouTube link.


Join us at Kids Worship – 3.30pm in St Helen’s Church. Fun, informal worship with songs, stories and craft. Especially suitable for primary age children and smaller siblings, but all are welcome. Before the service we have refreshments and craft activities in the Chancel.

Come to our next Messy Church on Sunday June 25th. An hour of crafts and games based on the Bible followed by a short, informal worship session with a story and fun action songs, then join us for a free family picnic tea all together.
