These services have now restarted. At the first service the children thought about how Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever. They enjoyed decorating biscuits with a smiley face and of course eating them if they didn’t want to take them home!
Services will continue every first and Third Sunday of the month.
The first Sunday in October will be the Harvest Thanksgiving which will be at the earlier time of 10.30am when there will be a combined service with the 10.00am congregation to give thanks for the bounty of goodness provided by God, followed by a bring and share lunch with activities for the children.
Sunday Lunch Club
September 8th saw the Sunday Lunch Club meet for their bring and share meal. An increasing number of people are finding this a delightful way to enjoy a Sunday lunch once a month. This time 34 people sat down to share a spread that included cold meats, sausage rolls, quiche as well as lasagne and curry plus various salads and bread. Afterwards there was a great selection of sweets, always popular. This time there were trifles, a jelly dish which had whipped up evaporated milk, that was a blast from the past!, ginger cake, cheesecakes, and fresh raspberries and cream, and more! There was enough of everything for seconds!
Avril and Sandra are marvellous at coordinating this meal which is open to anyone who finds themselves in need of a bit of company and some good food once a month.
The next Lunch is on October 13th so if this is for you just give one of them a ring, Avril on 269 7467 or Sandra on 260 6144.
For those who tried to guess how many matchsticks were used to construct the model of the church the answer was 5005. A young lad from Merton Avenue won the prize. Congratulations to him.
Ride and Stride
This took place on Saturday 14th September when Terry Farmer, Mick Streetley, Theresa Morgan and her family all took part cycling to various churches in the area to raise funds for Leicestershire Historic Churches. Half the money they raise will come back to our own church. They were very lucky with the weather! Terry and Mick managed to visit twenty one churches.
Ladies Friendship Circle
We started the first meeting of the new year with a delightful talk by Jennie Fox.
Jennie spoke to us about her collection of antique beaded purses. She brought some examples to show us. They were beautiful. We were told the approximate dates of when they were made, the type of beading and value.
It was a very interesting evening enjoyed by all.
