16 Jul The Archbishop of Canterbury’s Visit to the Guildford Diocese 24th-27th September 2021
In late September, Archbishop Justin Welby will be visiting the Guildford Diocese. The Archbishop will be attending various events to which any members of our congregations are invited. There are two different main events. One is for church members, and a second is for us to invite guests who may be interested, to hear a message about faith in Jesus Christ, so please read carefully.
An Evening with Justin Welby – Friday 24th September at 8.00 pm
All church members are invited to come to an event at the Lakeside Centre, Camberley. Archbishop Justin will speak on the future of the local church and take part in an extended Q&A session. This will be a time of encouragement, support and thanksgiving for all that parishes have been doing during the pandemic. This event is aimed first and foremost at existing church members.
You can book direct HERE.
If you book, can you please let the Church Office know if you are willing to offer anybody a lift or if you would like to attend and require a lift.
The Big Questions Event – Saturday 25th September at 5.30 pm
The Archbishop will be visiting each deanery for a Big Questions Event, to which we can invite guests who we feel may like to hear about the Christian faith in a ‘non-churchy’ way. This is a time of great opportunity as people emerge from a pandemic which has shaken the foundations of our worldly security, as people wrestle with uncertainty, perhaps they are asking big questions and increasingly open to faith. The Archbishop will spend most of his time responding to questions, which he does with candour and humour, and it is hoped that this will engage the audience and encourage them to explore the source of his hope, faith in Jesus Christ. No question will be ‘off limits’.
The Big Questions event for the Emly Deanery will be held at Esher Church of England High School.
You can book a place HERE.
Once again, if you book, can you please let the Church Office know if you are willing to offer anybody a lift or if you would like to attend and require a lift.
An Evening for Young People with the Archbishop of Canterbury and Guvna B – Sunday 26th September at 7.00 pm
There is also the opportunity for young people from schools and churches across the diocese to question Justin Welby and hear him speak on how to make the most of your life. The event will take place at Christ’s College, Guildford.
Register direct HERE. If you or your young person is interested then let Sarah our Youth Minister know – firstname.lastname@example.org
