October Open Synod – shared projects

Our recent Open Synod meeting at Virginia Water was extremely interesting. Not only did we have a first chance to meet their new Vicar, Revd Simon Vibert, but we also heard about a great variety of lay run projects, from Ottershaw’s CAMEO at Brook Hall to Egham’s involvement in the Manor Farm Day Centre, from Lyne’s growing children’s and school work to Englefield Green’s new informal service with bring&share lunch, and from Virginia Water’s Mission 52 (a new believer for every day of the year!) to Thorpe’s Winter Wonderland engaging the whole village in a Church event, and to Addlestone’s community outreach via their HeBrews Café and holiday “school” lunches. If any of these sound interesting to you, feel free to contact us and we’ll put you in contact with the people involved, facilitating further sharing where possible.
