Please note that the concert by Aeris Brass that was planned for this evening, Tuesday 20 December, has been cancelled by the band. They are most apologetic for this change.

Sit down for breakfast, stand up for farmers!
As Martin Luther King famously said, ‘before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world’. Despite our dependence on farmers and workers for the foods, drinks and products that we love, about 795 million people are undernourished globally. The people who grow the food we take for granted can’t always feed their own families. We can support farmers and workers to put food on the table for their families by harnessing the power of a Fairtrade breakfast.
When people are paid a fairer price, they can have more control over their lives when times are hard, and worry less about how they will feed their families. Whether it’s the extra cash in their pockets or being able to expand their farms to grow more food to eat, Fairtrade means many farmers and workers are able to fulfil a basic human need – to put enough food on the table for the people they care about, all year round. During Fairtrade Fortnight, let’s wake others up to the challenges facing farmers and workers.
Will you help us get as many people as possible to purchase Fairtrade products during Fairtrade Fortnight?

You may have taken advantage of our excellent Coffee Shop at Ferryhill Church over the years. It is open every morning (Monday to Saturday) of the year with a break over Christmas. The Coffee Shop provides an excellent space to catch up with friends over a cuppa or to get a bite to eat.
The Coffee Shop is made possible because of teams of volunteers who are on duty once a fortnight. You do not need to be a church member to be involved in one of these teams. If you are interested and would like to find out more about joining one of the teams, please contact Edna Sainsbury on 01224 572477.
