Our church premises were transformed from 25th to 27th October 2013 into a celebration of God's creation and the creativity of people of all ages. Exhibits were drawn together from local schools, congregations and clubs as well as various individuals and groups within the church under the theme 'All things praise him'. The Festival concluded with a service on Sunday evening led by Revd Paul Bedford and Mrs Gill Bailey, preceded by tea and cakes.

We praise you,
God of Seed and Flower
And we bless each other
That the beauty of this world
And the love that created it
Might be expressed though our lives
And be a blessing to others
Now and always
Amen

Celebrating 322 Years of Christian Witness in Fareham

The "Fareham's Got Talent" concert choreographed by organist and choir master Dennis Mason on Friday evening 11th October 2013 set the scene for a weekend of celebrations to mark the three hundred and twenty second anniversary of Christian witness in our church.

On Sunday morning, the Revd John Johansen-Berg enthralled children and adults alike with the antics of puppets, Badger, Owl, Duck and Fox to explore deeper Christian principles, hard work, wisdom, happiness, and friendship - after which, over eighty plus diners enjoyed a sumptuous three course Fellowship lunch, prepared most professionally (and apparently effortlessly) by the Moore family. A lovely time of fellowship and togetherness to round off our thanksgiving celebrations.
