On Sunday 12th May Cornerstone Uckfield celebrated the second anniversary of our official joining as one church from two. We welcomed, as our worship leader and preacher, the Rev'd Nicola Furley-Smith the Moderator of the Southern Synod of the United Reformed Church. She encouraged us to persevere in the work we are doing and look for the future things that God is preparing even when the going gets tough and things do not seem fruitful.
After the service members and friends, who were able, had a Bring-and-Share meal together in the church hall. There was plenty to go round and more besides. It was a pleasure to have this time for table fellowship and a natural way for the church to celebrate together.

The lunches that have been held since Wednesday 31st July have been a greatly enjoyable with the opportunity to make some new friends. The children enjoyed taking part in the games and activities before the meal. It would be tremendous to see anyone intrested next week on Wednesday 21st August.
The Church Picnic held on 4th of August at King's Standing was throughly enjoyable, with friends from Crowborough United joining us. The weather was very pleasant and good fun was had with the garden games, with some of us enjoying a lovely stroll around Ashdown Forest.
This year we won the Church Garden Competition .... Again!
A big Thank You to Linda for all her hard work
Many friends and family members joined us at the Beetle Drive held on Saturday 17th of August. The evening was great fun even with some dubious beetles drawn.
