Cream Tea

On Saturday 11th June we held an afternoon cream for the fellowship and local community to celebrate the queens 90th birthday. A rain filled start threatened to mar the afternoon of food, music over the years (as well as some patriotic tunes)  quizzes and good conversation. However, God made the clouds disappear mid afternoon resulting in a gathering that was well attended and enjoyed by all. 

Summer BBQ

 

Rain definitely did not stop play at this years summer BBQ. The afternoon started brightly with both bright sunshine which gave way to a showery afternoon followed by a downpour of rain forcing us all inside. Not put off by the weather a good turnout saw several neighbours join us in the hall for food, indoor games good conversations and music- the weather bringing a different atmosphere and many conversations and opportunities to simply say hello. God really blessed the afternoon through the poor weather!

 

Harvest thanksgiving

 

Our harvest thanksgiving service was (as usual) an informal service which included harvest related craft activities as we thanked God for how He meets all of our needs. As in previous years, our Harvest gifts will be donated to Mill Grove, a Christian family and children's centre and home. The service was followed by a fellowship lunch.

 

Bonfire night

 

Last night bridge- building bonfire night (4th November)- was once again a well supported and successful evening with many families joining in the fun of making guys, enjoying sparklers, glow sticks and plenty of hot food (jacket potatoes, sausages an d baked beans followed by toffee apples). 

 

Our prayer as we opened our doors to our local community is that God will bless and use our bridge-building events and both touch the lives of those who do not yet know him and build up our fellowship though our social gatherings.

 

Carol Service

 

We praise God for this years Carol Service which was well attended by both the fellowship and some of our neighbours who we have not met before. We pray that the message, welcome and conversations will have enabled God to reveal the truth of Christmas.
