The Sunday School hosted a pancake breakfast on Palm Sunday, 14th April. £307 was being raised for the Foundations project.
On Saturday 6th April a group of volunteers from the church, got up early to hide approximately 100 eggs and a few carrots around Cockle Row. The sun was shining and very much a welcome sight after the wild weather we had all week. While those volunteers were out getting cold, another group were busy in The Walter Nelson Hall preparing tea, coffee and a wonderful spread of home-baked goodies for the families who were going to visit.
At 10:30 am the doors of the Walter Nelson Hall were opened and the egg hunters were invited inside. After a quick cup of tea and a short set of instructions the fun began. It wasn’t long before happy, smiling children were returning to the hall with handfuls of little coloured eggs. After some refreshments, there was a count to see who had collected the most eggs. There were prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd along with six special carrots. The children who did not find the prize-winning carrots did not leave empty handed. Pockets were filled with lollipops and sweets and everyone got to keep their newly discovered eggs.
The Humble Folk came to The Walter Nelson Hall to play their very first full concert. The evening had been organised by the Outreach Committee (previously known as the Events Committee) and there was a full house. A good night was had by everyone and the Outreach Committee hope that people will support them for future events.
On the 1st March a group of very enthusiastic ‘InBetweeners’ went to Dundonald IceBowl for a friendly ten-pin bowling competition. The women’s team let the men’s team win. A good night was had by all and it was finished off with coffee, over the road, in Blue Chigaco.
On the 23rd February the Outreach Committee (formally known as the Events Committee) hosted a coffee and children’s craft morning. This is the first time the committee had ran such a crafts day and it was difficult to know what to expect. Reassuringly children showed up along with plenty of parents and grandparents – the morning was deemed a success. Although the morning was not a fundraising morning there was £135 raised from donations which helped cover costs and will go toward the next outreach event. Money left over at the end of the year will be donated to the Mission Committee who will nominate a cause to benefit.
