Ride and Stride

The Challenge

Walk, Cycle, or Run the Team – all 9 churches of the Stroud Team.

A circular route so you can start where you want.

Do this by yourself, with family, friends, neighbours or strangers.

Why are we doing this?

You’ll have your own reasons – fun, exercise, interest…

We’re also raising money for Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust and our local churches – 50% to GHCT and 50% to the Stroud Team

How to get started

First step – get some sponsors. There will be plenty of people within the church taking part so look for sponsors amongst friends far and wide and your local communities.

The best way to do this is to start a JustGiving page as part of the GHCT Ride and Stride Event.

Alongside this, you can download and print a paper sponsorship form.

Click the button above and click ‘Become a Fundraiser

They have some instructions from last year here.

Whose taking part already?

These people are taking part already. If you want to join them then feel free to get in touch with them. If you don’t have contact details then get in touch with Jodie in the office and she will help.

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
