Beat the Street
is a new community initiative being set up by Sport England and Public Health Dorset. Participants have a card, which collects points when they walk from one beat box to another, like urban orienteering! It's a great opportunity to get out and about, enjoy God's amazing creation, to use it as a prayer walk, to go on your own, with a friend or as a home group. The possibilities are endless!
The game begins on Wednesday 3rd October and goes on until Wednesday 14th November. Participants will need to collect a card and register it online. Cards can be collected from ASDA, the library, Morrisons. There are other collection points, which can be found on the website or on the Beat the Street Weymouth and Portland Facebook page. I also have some at the Parish Office at St Aldhelm's.
When you register the card online, you will be asked to choose a team. The Refresh team can be found under Community and Workplace.
Here is a link with more information, which should help, and will answer other questions.
If you want more information please get in touch with Cherry Clarke Tel 07514 114680 or email.

Temporary Volunteer Resource Assistant
21+ churches in the Weymouth area took part in Christian Aid Week 2018, raising over £000 through church services and house-to-house collections to tackle poverty around the world.
Christian Aid is motivated by faith in Christ and a deeply held conviction that each and every person on earth is a treasured child of God with infinite worth –if you share this vision read on…
