Guildford URC, Portsmouth Road enjoyed a wonderful weekend away at Dunford House, Midhurst, Sussex in late September. Thirty members stayed for the full weekend with families joining for a ‘fun’ day on the Saturday. The weather and food were good, the surroundings beautiful and everyone enjoyed a time of great fellowship.
The weekend was entitled “Seeking the Future of our Congregation” and was very ably led by Rev’d. Dr. Susan Durber, past Principal of Westminster College, Cambridge. As a former member of the Church, Susan was very aware of Portsmouth Road’s history and was able to tell members what they needed to hear. Worship surrounded all the activities during the weekend.
Emma Shaw, Children & Families Worker, led activities for the children and all-age worship on the Saturday. Susan challenged the Church to know who they are, who the Church’s neighbours are and what the vocation of Guildford URC is.
