On Sunday 28th June 2015, Fareham URC Junior Church's Anniversary will be celebrated in style, with the service being led by puppets - thanks to the Praizin' Hands Puppet Group from Cornerstone URC, Hythe. They visited us two years and we loved each other so much they're coming back again!

The Praizin' Hands group was set up in 2003 as part of the 1st Hythe Girls' Brigade. Originally formed for the older girls within the company, interest has grown and there are now three puppet teams reaching out into the community.

Puppets are non-threatening, making them an ideal tool to share God's love with people of all ages. Praizin' Hands use professional puppets and all puppeteers attend weekly training.

Coming soon... Fareham URC Art and Flower Festival 26-28 June 2015

Local clubs, schools and pre-schools will be displaying some of their work, and local churches will be presenting flower displays on the theme 'There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven' (Ecclesiastes 3).

The festival opens from 9.00am to 5.00pm on Friday 26 June and Saturday 27 June, and 1.00pm to 4.00pm on Sunday 28 June. Entrance is free .

Refreshments will be served throughout the festival including tea, coffee, cakes and cookie, and soup and rolls at lunchtime.

On Sunday 28 June, the festival will close with a Strawberry Cream Tea at 4.00pm and a Songs of Praise evening service at 6.00pm. After the service, you are invited to take home some of the flowers, either to keep yourself or share with friends and family.

Any money donated during the festival will be split between the church's two charities - the Jeel al Amal school in Bethany, and Portsmouth Churches Housing Association.
