Back in December 1993 the four Chrisitian churches (Anglican, Baptist, Catholic and Methodists) in the village of Haddenham held a special service during which a covenant (a set of promises) was established.
It was a service that acknowledged our differences and celebrated the unique contribution brought by each tradition. But it was also a service that acknowledged that there was more that united us than divided us.
That unity was acknowledged in a series of promises to support one another and to work together wherever possible, to bring the good news of God's love by serving our village.
The covenant, which emphasises our close collaboration under the banner of 'Churches Together in Haddenham', has been renewed each year since. Not even a pandemic could stop us this year, even if it looks a little different and needs to be conducted online.
The Churches Together in Haddenham Renewal of Covenant Service 2021 has been pre-recorded and will be broadcast on the Baptist church Facebook page at 12.00 noon on Sunday 24th January.
If that timing does not work well for you, the Service is available on Youtube — see here.
