04/03/2020 Quiz Lunch - Our annual quiz lunch was a success again, with a full complement of 5 teams of 4. We enjoyed cottage pie with red cabbage, cheese and pancakes (for Shrove Tuesday) before settling down to a testing quiz consisting of an ice-breaker and 5 subject rounds. Heckling was kept to a minimum due to the quiz-mistress's strict hold on the proceedings, having learnt from previous years that compassion and leniency get you nowhere!Thanks to the cooks, Shirley and Maggie, and to the kitchen assistants. 250Ä was raised for Restos du Coeur. This year the Ash Wednesday service was held before the Quiz Lunch at 11am and this proved to be a success, with more people attending. Due to the distance travelled by many in our congregation, it is difficult to get a good attendance two days' running, so this was felt to be a good compromise.
23/01/2020 Christian Unity service - The annual service of Christian unity, organised by the ecumenical group representing the churches of St RaphaŽl and Frťjus, took place on Thursday evening, 23 January, at the French Protestant church. The church was full, with Christians from the Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican and Protestant churches taking part. The music was led by our own choir who did a great job, and our Chaplain, Tom Wilson, was part of the clerical team leading the service.
06/01/2020 Ladies Who Lunch - We are starting a new venture to cater for the many single women we have in the congregation, some of whom may not feel able to eat out on their own, and this will take the form of a monthly lunch club using venues in the St RaphaŽl area. However, this is open to all women in the church, regardless of status, with the aim of giving us all the opportunity to socialise together. If you would like to be kept informed of dates and venues please use the contact section of this website. Details will be posted every month on the "Dairy - social" pages of this website.
