GIFT Summer Term

Posted by GIFT admin on Mar 18, 2013 in GIFT

GIFT will resume for the Summer Term on Tuesday 9th April at 7pm in Ettington Church and we hope to see you all again then. There will be a blog on the Cadbury World trip after Easter, along with the rest of the Summer Term dates. In the meantime, the GIFT leaders would like to wish all GIFT-ers and their families a lovely Easter. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” [John 3:16]
