Celebrate In Style
The Jan 2017 panto is 'Aladdin...!' With a great script, dazzaling costumes, impressive set, plenty of laughs... and a wonderful cast of local faces, this is set to be an amazing show to suit all ages!
This years script has been written by village local and funny man Gavyn Lugsden, who also Directs the show and appears as Widow Twanky! Gavyn said 'with a much richer budget than previous years, this is going to be an unmissable performance. Not only does the pantomime include all the ingredients you'd expect, there are also some added extras, including an amazing flying carpet scene, an hilarious laundry slap-stick routine and some new visual effects'.
The Rev Jenny Spouge made a welcome return to us for our October Cafe Service, when we had a lively and interesting discussion on healing and the importance of treating people holistically. On the third October Sunday, we were all moved by Melvyn Corby's sermon urging us to hold fast to the Word of God, the key to the spread of the Gospel. Our new minister, Nigel Bibbings, led the Communion Service on the fourth Sunday. The theme of his service was 'God's unconditional love which is available to all'. He urged us to stay on track and be faithful to God throughout our lives, reminding us that He will be faithful to us whether or not we are successful. As usual when there is a fi fth Sunday in the month, we and the Edlesborough Methodist Church congregation joined our friends in the Salvation Army at their morning service.
It was a typically joyful occasion with a characteristically warm welcome and a very meaningful sermon on God's amazing grace.
The Saturday Cafe Community programme started again on the second Saturday in October and was a very pleasant event with a number of new visitors.
