Ride and Stride

Each September we take part in the national sponsored 'Ride and Stride' in aid of church repairs, organised in this area by the Friends of Essex Churches Trust.

You can see Edwin talking about the event in this video.

Some years the church has a group of cyclists raising money for our building, and some years walkers join a group from different congregations on a walk that takes in lots of Newham's church buildings. Every year the Memorial church is open to visitors for this event.

On 14 September 2013 a team of nine cyclists rode over 30 miles around some rural Essex churches on a rather wet day to raise money for the final phase of building repairs. Half the money raised went to our building fund, and half to the Friends of Essex Churches Trust, which has made several generous grants towards our building repairs so far. 

An ecumenical group of 'striders' around Newham churches  dropped in at Memorial during the morning, seeing the work of Bridges in action. 

There are photos of this event in different years in the photo gallery.
