Christian Aid Strawberry Cream Tea

Thank you to everyone who supported Christian Aid by attending or helping at the Strawberry Cream Tea on Saturday 31st in Little Gaddesden. We are delighted to say that we raised £638 on the day. This means that Little Gaddesden has raised over £2,200 for Christian Aid in 2021.

Evening Worship in August
