2018 Foodbank Annual Report for The Three Rivers Group
A very big Thank You for the significant amount of donations received from yourselves.
The villages comprising the Three Rivers Group donated 1208 kg of food and other goods.
One way in which we can show God's love in the world is to show care for the world He created. In Isleham a small group has started to think about Ecological issues. Are there others who would be interested? Worlington church has already received a bronze and silver Eco Church award and we are thinking about a visit to learn more.

Is God calling you to something?
There are a few things around which it might be good for our churches to be involved with. If anyone would like to take a more active part in prayer, reading the bible, working with young people, thinking about church growth, visiting baptism families, thinking about our faith, and many other things, then please contact David if this is something God might be nudging you towards.
