meeting on Tuesday 17th October 2017 at Wessex Christian Fellowship Hall, Wessex Close, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 3NP at 7.30pm. At this meeting I will share the vision, give you an opportunity to ask questions and discuss what you would like from this event and how you would like to b:involved.

The Salvation Army Church in Basingstoke are celebrating the installation of their new Officer Lieut Rob Westwood-Payne.
Rob, pictured beside his wife Gail, was installed by Major Ian Hudson, the Divisional Mission Enabler, into his leadership role on Sunday 23rd July. Rob announced that his mission is to Win Souls, Grow Saints and Serve those who Suffer. We welcome Rob and Gail into the town and look forward to enjoying fellowship together.
WHO CARES? HAMPSHIRE
In the summer of 2017, 59 churches across Hampshire brought Who Cares? to their communities to show that not only do we care but also that Jesus cares. Churches began by listening and asking the simple question ‘What Hurts You The most?’.
The churches involved are now responding with compassion, tailoring the normal activities and ministries of the church to meet local people’s needs in an effective and realistic way.
roadshow at St Leonard's Church Centre, Oakley on Saturday 4th November between 10 am and noon
Freedom in Christ Ministry: STRATEGY FOR DISCIPLESHIP
WARDROBES & RINGS
Wardrobes & Rings is a brand new three person theatre production that will transport you back to Oxford in 1963, to the Eagle & Child pub, where legendary authors J.R.R. Tolkien and his great friend C.S. Lewis meet for what turns out to be the very last time. With great humour, wit, and fascinating stories, these remarkable lives are explored in this memorable piece of theatre. After the success of the 2016 one man theatre production ‘An evening with CS Lewis’, actor David Payne returns to the UK in September with Marc Whitmore for a limited run of Church performances.
Everyone is invited to our OneChurch Prayer Breakfasts, where you can meet, enjoy fellowship and pray with other local Christians. The dates and venues for the upcoming Prayer Breakfasts are:
