The team look forward to seeing you as often as you can—on offer are coffee, biscuits, toasted teacake, stall with a good stock of items as well books to browse. Our selection of large 1000-piece jigsaws has been moving along well. so come and see if there is one to take your fancy! Whether it be for when dark nights are upon us, or else something to take away with us whilst on summer holidays, having a jigsaw on the go is something many of us find relaxing, challenging, and fun. Come and have a look, we have a good variety to tempt you! Church Bookstall is also readily available, and the Traidcraft cupboard has a small range of goods to tempt you. Every Saturday - 10.00a.m. through to mid-day. Saturday Coffee meets until the summer break. Saturday Coffee started many years ago now, as a means of providing an opportunity for the busy church of the time to meet for Coffee, sit and have a chat, find a seat if you could (it was generally packed out!), and buy from a stall which always had on it jars of marmalade made by Edith Swinglehurst, wife of our then Minister, Rev. Peter Swinglehurst. The place buzzed. Bernard and Irene Kirkbride were the main organisers and they worked extremely hard to ensure Saturday Coffee generated good income for the church, and so it did. Over the years the team has changed, the marmalade makers came and went, the ‘clientele’ lessened little by little as time went by, but Saturday Coffee remains one of the great areas of outreach into the community. Seeking to generate good income for the church continues, and you may be interested to learn that over the twelve-months period from last September the sum of £1807.63p has been handed to Church Funds from Saturday Coffee. Well done everyone—Team and Customers alike!
Prayer for the day
For our Friday Tots Group settled into its new term, may the fun, help, and care offered by our team to young parents and their little ones, or to grandparents and carers bringing toddlers along, may the buzz of activity, chatter, play and refreshments, as well as the noise of singing and playing instruments, all contribute to fun-filled mornings each Friday.
