Away Day: Daws Heath 2015, Othona 2013 & 2011
Christ Church frequently goes away for a good lunch and to learn from a guest speaker.
In 2015 we went to St. Michael's in the Daws Heath, where Rev Peter Ball ask us the question 'A missionary Church?'
In previous years we have gone to the Othona Community near Bradwell-on-Sea.
In 2013 Rev John Proctor lets us through Acts 16 discovering insights in Paul's relationship with the church in Philippi.
In 2011 the Rev Dr. Janet Tollington, surveyed the Old Testament with us.
The final Communion service was in the ancient Chapel of St Peter's on the Wall, built by St. Cedd in 654AD.
