Remembrance Sunday (8th Nov) and Armistice (Wed 11th Nov) in Congresbury and Banwell:

As you will appreciate things are going to need to be a little different this year.

There will be a Remembrance Sunday Service in both Villages on Remembrance Sunday:

  • Congresbury at 10.30am
  • Banwell at 3.00pm

Unfortunately, we are not able to have the usual parade by members of the community and by the Uniformed Organisations, and the service will need to be limited to a very small number of invited participants. But we will be Livestreaming both services through the New Creation Facebook Page and also the Love Banwell and Love Congresbury pages.

You can access the Services by watching LIVE via the Facebook pages

Congresbury at 10.30am: –

Armistice Day – Wednesday 11th Nov at 11.00am:

  • Congresbury – we will be livestreaming a short service from outside the War Memorial Hall. Unfortunately, we cannot invite people to join us as this is subject to ‘the rule of six’. We will be gathering at 10.45 and will be livestreaming to both the New Creation and Love Congresbury Facebook Pages.

Giving to the LOCAL Marcus Rashford Initiative through Love Congresbury and Love Banwell:

In various parts of the country local Cafes, Pubs, Shops and other Food Outlets are offering children who would otherwise rely on Free School Meals the opportunity to get a simple free meal through their establishment.

After being approached by some local business owners, Love Banwell and Love Congresbury would like to offer their support towards this initiative.  As Half-term is upon us this coming week we will be working hard with those who have already approached us to make this possible and also try to liaise with key people at our local Primary schools especially to try and get the word out to those families they know are particularly vulnerable and would benefit most.

Initially, Beth Ashton-Hilton (New Creation Treasurer along with Bob Mitchell) is happy to manage small financial gifts towards supporting this project which we are calling the “Local Marcus Rashford Initiative.”  If you wish to give a small donation to this fund such as £2, £3 or £5 then details of how to do this are given below.  Being part of Love Banwell and Love Congresbury and therefore an existing Charity behind it means we can also claim the Gift Aid on donations if you are a taxpayer.

Once we have got through Half-term, we hope to then develop more established links between local businesses, the schools and others in order to prepare with a little more time for Christmas unless wider circumstances change.

Further details will be posted on the website www.newcreationchurches.org.uk, along with the New Creation, Love Banwell and Love Congresbury Facebook pages as we develop the scheme and co-operations with other local organisations so please look out for updates.
