Paris to Geneva – By bike? in January? Over the Jura Mountains…? You’ve got to be… St Margaret’s Church Vicar…!

St Margaret’s church is a vibrant family church in the heart of Olton Solihull. But there are some gaps in our congregation! Although we have many young families and smaller children we have fewer teenagers and young people. We want to build what we can offer for teenagers and young people by getting a weekly youth group going where they can enjoy fellowship together and continue to grow in faith. My friend Thomas and I will be cycling for more than 350 miles between Paris and Geneva over the course of four days. Our route will take us over the Jura mountains for the last 50 miles or so where we may have to change to snow spike tyres. Obviously we maintain the right to take appropriate actions when we are out, and to amend our plans in the case of extreme weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. The money raised will be designated for youth work but not restricted. This means that the church can put the money into general church funds if the intended use can’t happen for any reason. We would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers. https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers…
