On Sunday 31st October, a team of runners from St Giles and St John the Baptist Church will be competing in the Lincoln 10k.  The route passes through the parishes, and it will make getting to church on Sunday morning tricky for some.  If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, so seven of us have entered the race and hope to be finished in time for a 4 pm Sunday Eucharist instead of the usual 10 am one.   We’re hoping to raise a few hundred pounds to support the work we do in our parishes with families and young people.  We are also intending to give some away to the National Estate Churches Network.   St Giles and St John the Baptist are typical estate parishes with all the challenges and diversity that brings.  We’ve been collaborating on a number of projects over the last year and have loved praying together and getting to know each other.  Now we’re running together too.  So if you want to encourage us please donate online here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/stgilesandstjohns

And if you’re in Lincoln on the day, give us a wave and a cheer.
