Friends of Foxhill

FRIENDS OF FOXHILL EVENTS 2019.

Thank you for supporting the work of Foxhill House in so many different ways. There is a sense of gathering excitement as the work flourishes, but all the more need for a circle of people who are praying in an informed and regular way. Thank you all for doing this.

As we look into 2019 we would like to invite you to the following specific Friends’ events:
