Handel at Fareham URC

HallelujahHallelujah

We invite you to a special act of worship at Fareham URC on Sunday evening 6 September 2015 at 6pm.

A service based on six excerpts from Handel’s “Messiah” will be sung by the choir.

There will be congregational singing and Holy Communion to which all are welcome.

What links snooker, singing, sketching, sharing and seasonal food? Read on…

Thirty-five members of Fareham URC came together for an “Informal Church Meeting” on 11 August 2015, 6.00 – 8.30pm....

No minutes or agenda, but food, fellowship and a deepening of faith.

A bring-and-share supper was followed by a first optional workshop. On offer were a discussion on a book or film that had moved you, or, in another room, a study of the welcome, or otherwise, that was given to communion in Corinth. In the meantime a small group braved the weather and pruned the church garden.

A second workshop offered memorable church buildings one had visited, a free expression art table or “Sing a new song to the Lord” in the church.

All the while, games – board and other – “Table Talk” discussion starter cards, a wordsearch and quiz were all available.
We drew it all together with an act of worship.
