In the autumn of 2008 we applied to be a placement for a student from All Nations College in Ware. This college prepares and trains people who feel that God is calling them to go “To the ends of the earth” for him. We were delighted when Sharon Jones was placed with us for two years.
Over those two years Sharon made such a difference to the life of the church here in Great Ashby. She threw herself into all sorts of church activities. She preached, led worship, joined us in our Alpha course, she taught in our childrens’ groups, got alongside individuals to share the gospel with them, she ate, laughed, cried and prayed with us.
We have a regular Fairtrade Stall usually on the first Sunday in the month. Items can be purchased on the day or ordered in advance. The Church also uses fairtrade tea and coffee. For further info about fairtrade visit the Fairtrade Foundation website.
