We held a 'Pitstop Prayer Station' as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. It was aimed particularly at the hundreds of drivers who pass our door every morning and evening on their way to or from work.
There were prayers with bacon butties between 7am - 8.30am, and prayers with coffee and cake between 5pm - 6.30pm in the evening.
This wasn't any 'holy huddle'... it's hard to look beatific with ketchup or dadies source dripping down your chin...but it was somewhere to find some much needed space on the daily commute.
We were delighted to host the British Methodist Youth Choir recently, who gave a concert to a packed church. The majority of the music performed was written by the choir's Musical Director, Heidi Cottrell. The choir has produced two CDs, available from their website. You can also preview two of the songs on YouTube:
We held a Family Light party on 31st October as an alternative to Halloween. There were no ghouls or ghosties but there were still traditional games like apple bobbing as well as craft and refreshments.
