Storytelling in June - Marion Leeper will be visiting us again on Sunday 24th June. Children and their parents should meet in the church at 10.30am for the start of the service, and head through to the church hall during the first hymn for this creative and interactive event.

Tue 26 June. 7.30pm in the church. Christ’s Pieces Residents’ Association AGM. James Palmer, Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough will speak on ‘What is the solution to the traffic congestion in Cambridge?’

Open Gardens Afternoon - Sat 7 July. Five gardens in Emmanuel Road, Parker Street, Victoria Street, Orchard Street and New Square will be open to the public on the afternoon of 7th July. That includes the church garden. Tickets for the Open Garden event cost £5 and the ticket office will be at the church, where also teas will be available. Profits will go to Jimmy’s, the local homeless charity on East Road. If you’d like to help, either with preparing the church garden for the event and/or helping on the day, please speak to Susanna Brown.

Summer tea parties. Every summer we organise a few tea parties in the homes (or gardens) of church members. These are opportunities for people to gather informally and get to know each other better. Many thanks to those who have offered to host tea parties on July and September. Would anyone like to host a tea party on a Saturday during August? Please contact Brendan Boyle [javascript protected email address] or 01480 387883 if you might be interested.

Forthcoming church services. Our 10.30am and 6.30pm services will continue up to the end of July. It’s worth remembering that if you miss a service, you can read our minister Andrew Brown’s address on his blog at http://andrewjbrown.blogspot.com/ . During August, however, our minister will be on holiday and only a 10.30am will be held.
On 5th August, Michael Allured from Golders Green Unitarians will lead our worship.
On 12th August, Chris Carr visits us from Hull Unitarians.
On 19th August, two of our church members Sue Tombs and Dipak Panchal are organising the service, and they’d like members and friends of the congregation to tell them what are their favourite hymns and prayers, and the reasons behind their choices. They are planning a ‘truly inclusive’ service.
26th August - We don’t yet have details of the service on 26th August but will let you know asap.
2nd September. Our morning service will be led by Joan Cook, who is the currently President of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, to which our church is affiliated.
