It is that time of year again and the BART singers will be starting rehearsals on Thursday 5th October at 7.30 pm in the Geoffrey Grimes room for our Advent season of services and concerts. If you think you can’t sing, if have always wanted to sing but have never had the nerve, this is your chance, we specialise in you. We are always looking for new members and welcome Christians, Agnostics and Atheists.

BART Women’s Fellowshipwomen

The speaker at BART Women’s Fellowship in October, was Maggie Mitchell. Taking as her title “From tiny seeds…….”, Maggie spoke very movingly  about the work of the charity Starfish Malawi. Maggie is a Trustee and Director of Starfish Malawi with special responsibility for the Sponsorship Programme. Maggie informed us about how the charity started and  how she became involved, and then described all aspects  of the current ministry and  most recent developments. We were able to make a  donation of £75.00 towards the work of Starfish Malawi at the end of the meeting.

Our speaker at the next meeting to be held at 2.00pm, in Ryarsh Church Hall, on Thursday, November 2nd

will be Amanda Susini.  Amanda is a Port Officer at Dover and will be speaking about her daily life and work in a very challenging environment
