22 July 2019 — Saturday Cafe continues and is going to until the end of the year :-) We have our rota for the Wednesday sessions starting on 4 September and to run for 6 months. Publicity to follow. Tonight we have an extraordinary Church Council to seek money from the Church fellowship to get WiFi in the church and allow us to buy storage cupboards and a new sign.
6 July 2019 — Saturday Cafe starts today — check it out
29 June 2019 — today is leafleting day see the leaflet we are distributing today here
We have decided to...
Next step — meet to to reflect on what we have learned from our conversations help at the open morning
Here is the lovely sign to let people know of the open morning...
Next stop Open morning on SATURDAY 4 May 10:00-12:00
Summary is done!
The results show we have a great opportunity to offer...
1) An open, welcoming, friendly place
It's clear that many people want a place to meet one another. Whether for conversation, support, nourishment, relaxation or just to get to know one another, we need a place that is easy to drop into and where we can stay for as long as we want. A place that is informal and relaxed, where it is easy to talk and to be heard — whatever your age.
2) An interesting, stimulating place
A larger space can be thought-provoking as well as welcoming. Big walls can showcase artistic talent, be a source of information and signpost support, engage with the mind as well as the heart. Our community is rich with diverse experience — what could we learn from one another if only we met regularly?
3) A place to do things together
Doing things together is fun! From watching a film to attending a fitness class, time together is enlivening, life-affirming and joyous. People who do things together grow closer as they discover the things they share. Doing things with others gets our own lives into perspective and gives us a wider vision of the world and our place in it.
Now the leaflets are out in the village with drop off points at the Spar and Post Office, we await responses...The collection boxes will be gathered 31 March/1 April and we can then start analysing the feedback to find out what the village thinks we can use a redeveloped building for.
Here is our lovely leaflet with its questionnaire in the middle

...and (part of) the tired but victorious team who today completed the leafleting of the whole village (note glorious cake)
Plans are afoot!
Here is a summary of what we discussed on 13 February 2019:
Following an extraordinary Church Council on 5 February 2019 a small group of us will be trying to discern where the church fellowship want to go with their mission and hence their future building plans.
We meet for the first time on 13 February at 8:30pm at the Village Hall and we'll be working through the suggestion on the Church Build website
