Thank you to all of you who have made angels. We have now passed a quarter of the target of five hundred and with two months to go I am sure we will meet it. I am hoping some of you who have not been able to make angels will be able to help to distribute them at late night shopping and through December.

C S Lewis’ epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, will be shown at Coads Green Chapel on Sunday 7th October at 2:00 pm – please note the change of time.
For those people who are attending the ‘Not a Tame Lion’ evenings at Coads Green Chapel, this is an ideal opportunity to see the whole film. For those who just enjoy C S Lewis’ grappling of the Christian faith in an alternative and exciting way, or have not seen it before, then come along and join us on Sunday 7th October at 2:00 pm. I can assure you that you do not have to climb through the back of an old wardrobe in order to see this magical film!
