About Emmaus: Video screening Sunday 22nd May

Many of us will recall Tomasz, the Polish man who appeared one day and ended up living in the churchyard hedge for several months. After supporting and caring for him, we were eventually able to get him into an Emmaus community where he remains, getting the support and care he needs as he turns his life around.

In part, it is because of Tomasz that we have decided to support Emmaus as our charity for this year. There are a number of exciting events and concerts in the coming months to raise as much money as we can for this amazing charity and their work.

Will and Stephen Boffey had the privilege of visiting Emmaus in St Albans and have made a short film about their work and the approach they take.

This will be screened in the Transept after the 9.30 am service next week so do come along and join us to watch if you possibly can.
