The Town Criterium is annual afternoon of cycle races around a 1.2km closed-roads course in St Helier.
The track forms a heart-shape which interlocks with
the heart-shaped district of St Paul’s Church.
We are committed to loving and serving our town. As an expression of our support for the organisers of this successful and superb sporting event, we hand out cookies to the crowds, provide refreshments for the marshalls and officials, and pray.
In doing so we hope to enhance the already tangible community spirit, and display the radically generous character of God.
The 2013 Criterium will be on Sunday 26 May.
St Paul’s Church will be reaching out between 11am and 6pm.
