Pancakes, bread and songs

We’ve had great fun at Edward Bear Club and GLOW this week.





At Edward Bear Club, we had lots of singing this week & then heard a story about Jesus going into the desert. We made craft of a good that we found tempting – Pizza.

And at Glow, after enjoying some tasty pancakes with chocolate & ice cream we heard about the period of Lent. We made our own delicious fresh bread & had pancake races.


We’d love to see you next time.

Sunday Celebration 3rd March



Sunday’s service, after a buffet breakfast, focused around the story of Jesus being tempted by the Devil in the wilderness (desert).  During the service we had our “thank you” prayers suggested by the congregation, followed by Celtic circle prayers! We all enjoyed an illustrated story about the events in the desert. Whilst the children made “pizzas” choosing from all their favorite foods and thinking about Lent and giving up something, the adults listened to a reflection on temptation and what “wilderness” may look like to each of us and why we might be tempted?

The next Sunday Celebration will be 9:00 for breakfast; service starting 9:30, Sunday April 7th 2019, at St Mark’s Church Shavington – come and join us!

Edward Bear Returns!

We had a great time at Edward Bear Club on Monday 25th February.  It was great to meet everyone and we learned all about the Lost Sheep and made some sheep of our own.

We meet every Monday morning 9am-10:30am during term time at All Saint’s Hall.

Parish New Year Meal

Our annual All Saints & St Mark’s Parish Meal happened to fall on 25th January this year – so we couldn’t resist a “Burns Night” theme”. 52 Parishioners sat down to a wonderful meal of Cock-a-leekie soup followed by Haggis, Neaps and Tatties (with Melon and Beef or Vegetarian casseroles also on offer), all cooked by our talented volunteers.

The Haggis was paraded around All Saints Church Hall for all to admire, to the tunes of a Scottish Piper, before the “Ode to the Haggis” was read and the traditional Toast raised.

Whilst we were digesting the main course everyone joined in singing some well-known (and some less well known….) Scottish songs, to work up a further appetite for the wonderful array of tempting Sweets and Cheese which rounded the meal off.

A great night was had by all, many thanks to everyone who worked so hard preparing the food and clearing everything away afterwards.
