Sponsored sleepout

Can you give one night of your life to change nights for others next winter? Since November hundreds of people in Essex and East London have found warmth, food and shelter in church halls and other projects supported by our church. Could you get sponsors (anything from £10 to £1000 - every penny helps) and sleep outside for one night to help support this work next winter? Sleepout Fri 12th - Sat 13th April in the grounds of Walsingham House at Abbotswick. Please click here for more details. Full details at

Charity football match

If you are 16-27 and want to be part of a Lourdes fundraiser, the charity football match details are at 13th July, Dagenham. Last year the youth beat the leaders 6-2; can the leaders regain their pride in 2019?! Spectators are very welcome.
