  • March 2013 - 80 people from 3 Counties Church took on the challenge of Live to Give between 2nd and 29th March. They lived on a very limited budget in order to experience firsthand something of what it is like to live on very little. The path was fun but also steep and unpredictable as people shared experiences about road kill, eco balls, and cycling school runs. Much was learnt by participants about spending money more wisely and empathising with those permanently on low incomes. An amazing £13,000 was raised for Haslemere Food Bank, 3 Counties Money Advice, Guildford YMCA and Tearfund’s Eagles project in Malawi.
  • November 2013 - Trevor Roff, our Open Doors Church representative reported on how Open Doors' had influenced the vote against sending arms to Syria in August after chemical attack.  The congregation gathered around 3 lighted candle stations to pray for Syria. In particular that food, aid, blankets and bibles would get through to Syrians, especially Christians, through the Open Doors co-workers. For people like Hanna, a Christian in Damascus who works in a school. She comforted several children through Psalm 91, which reminds us that God will protect us from the "terrors of the night". That the save Syria petition would be signed by hundreds of thousands of people in the free world. Over 100 individuals from 3Counties church have signed the petition. It now has over 300,000 signatures in total, which will be presented to the U.N. in New York in December 2013. Please pray that it will have maximum impact on the delegates there.
  • October 2013 - During our Harvest service items were collected for the Haslemere Food Bank which provides emergency food parcels to local people in need. The congregation also donated £2954.05 to our Tearfund Connected Church in Beka and other linked villages across Malawi. Kidzone collected £84.60 in little money boxes they had made.
