This summery August month we raised £100 to support a charity called HOST UK, which finds host families for international students visiting Great Britain. HOST UK promotes international friendship and understanding by arranging for international students studying in the UK to spend a day, weekend or Christmas in a British home. A good turnout saw a near full house discussing topics such as the ongoing olympics with the opening ceremony being much discussed. The recent passing away to peace of our long standing member Bernard Wheeler who died early this week after a very short illness was on many peoples mind. Our thoughts are with his family and he will be remembered by many.
Whitacre Congregation is a vibrant mix of young and old who enjoy meeting for Sunday worship. Do come and join us.
