Humber Bridge Cross
Our churches are quite widely used by different community groups. Bringing the church and community groups close together sometimes has unexpected results. Walk Well (a health promotion scheme) use St Michael’s as a base every Tuesday morning. This is how some of them spotted the fact that some members of St Michael’s were taking part in the annual sponsored walk across the Humber Bridge for Christian Aid Week. Instead of just a few people the group from this parish became a coach load, and at least £1000 extra was raised for Christian Aid as a result. This year the last two places on the coach were taken up by people who’d come to last week’s First Sunday Thing, heard this story and decided to join in.
