Welcome to edition 16 of 2021! As always the newsletter contains a wide range of items – definitely something for everyone.
A sub-group of our eco-group invites us all to think creatively about our churchyard - it is a wonderful resource, packed with people every day. Please do consider ideas and feed them back to David Mayers, Sallie Bancroft or myself.
We also welcome the return of the Treacle Market in a scaled down version on Sunday (25th) and David encourages us all to support this, and our local traders generally.
Sallie gives us a review of the Lent book, “Living his Story” and Tricia continues her review of “Listening for the Heartbeat of God”, following up on people’s initial feedback.
There is a wonderful report from Rachel on the nightshelter and how it has worked this year, and information also from Rachel on progress on our AV project.
Page 6 contains details of our Annual Church Meeting to be held on 9th May: we do encourage as many of you as possible to attend church that morning – whether live or by Zoom, to participate in this meeting.
In addition, I have included some recipes included in our septcentenary recipe book of 1978: one from Cynthia Cole and another from Tricia Atherton. Who’d have thought either of them was old enough to have been cooking then?! In addition is a fascinating recipe for a “Bible Cake” – the ingredients for which are cryptically embedded in Bible verses. Please do make it, someone, and let us know what it tastes like!
Among these serious items are the usual humorous cartoons, pictures or comments – just to keep you reading (and smiling). I hope you enjoy the edition and – as always – do keep the articles, etc. coming.
