Cove Parish Party

Cove Parish Party

This summer in Cove Parish we celebrate the significant anniversaries of both of our church buildings, Christ Church’s has its 90th Anniversary and St. John’s Church its 180th Anniversary. So on Sunday 9th June we are having Cove Parish Party to celebrate this DOUBLE Birthday, which will be the center point of our celebrations and fund raising. 

The Bishop of Dorking will be at our 9am and 10:30am services, which will be followed by a fun afternoon with BBQ and family entertainment at Christ Church for everyone in the Parish.
