Good Friday at 2pm Stainer’s Crucifixion - Come & Sing (or just listen) at Abbey Lane Chapel, Saffron Walden, CB10 1AG, followed by light refreshments. All welcome
Many thanks to everyone who
took part in Choir for a Day on Saturday 6 April, and also to all those
"behind the scenes". Special
thanks to Mark, whose finger tips must have been smoking at the end with all
the notes he played! We had a lot of
fun during the day and all of the hard work paid off - we raised £859 for the
Church Building Fund. Thank you to
everyone who supported this venture.
We are very
happy that the British Georgian Music Society are
coming to put on a free concert for us on Saturday 20 July. We will be selling tickets to benefit our
Church Redevelopment Fund. The
children are extremely talented and it should be a great concert. However, to keep their costs down we would
like to be able to provide them with accommodation. The lead family will be put up in the Manse
so we need 10 households to be able to take 1 adult and 2 children plus 7
that can take 1 child with 1-2 parents (large room). This will be for 3 nights (Thurs 18/7 - Sat
20/7). They return on Sunday 21/7. They will spend a day visiting London so are
likely to just need the overnight stays and maybe breakfast. Please contact Lynn in the Church Office if
you are able to help.Traidcraft has now
restructured its buying and selling procedures, and this has resulted in some
items being out of stock for several weeks.
We are now almost back to normal and expect ginger cookies just after
Easter. In the meantime we have chewy
oat cookies and chocolate chip cookies along with our
usual range of teas, coffees, sugars and condiments. Easter eggs are available, but once these
are gone there will not be an opportunity to buy more.
and Creative Activities suitable for all will be open in our church
10.00am to 1.00pm Monday to Thursday this week, and then 12noon to 3.00pm on Good
Friday. The bookstall will also be
open, and of course there will be coffee on Thursday morning too. Do call in and have a look.
The next WiLos
Lunch will be on Sunday 28 April – put it in your diary now!
Jigfest Do you have any old
jigsaws hanging around? Graham is hoping
to run a 'Jigfest' in early 2020. We
need jigsaws and people who like making them up. Especially welcome are vintage, wooden and
children's jigsaws. Speak to Graham if
you can help, or if you know a housebound person who would be able to put
together a number of puzzles. Further
details to follow.
