Fellowship & Social – Tuesday, July 16th, 7:00 pm @ St. John’s United, Middleton

St. John’s United (Middleton) is hosting a fellowship and social time on July 16 for the 7 churches in our “cluster”.

At a recent small group meeting at Kingston United came a desire to maintain some contact between our various congregations in our sub-region. From the meeting, came a hope that such events would be a regular occurrence with each of the 7 congregations hosting an food and fellowship evening. perhaps on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. St. John’s volunteered to host the first such event as detailed above. It is expected that each church will send at least 3-5 people to the event.  People from Berwick to Digby are specifically invited.
