Socially Distanced Hallowe’en

With Covid-19 still disrupting our plans, we won’t be able to be on the green again this Hallowe’en serving hot chocolate and sweets. It’s going to be very different for a lot of us this year, and some people may not be as comfortable opening their doors to Trick or Treaters as in previous years. To help with that, we’ve produced some posters which you can put in your windows or on your doors.

Join in The Big Quiz Night

Join us on Saturday 16th November as we join with churches across the UK in hosting Tearfund’s The Big Quiz Night.  In 2018, 500 churches and 23,000 people took part in the quiz, and this year we want to be a part of making it even bigger.

Entry is £4 per person or £20 for a team of six, and includes a free hot drink and doughnut. Other refreshments are available to buy on the night, or bring your own. Get your neighbours, friends and family together to form a team and let’s have some healthy competition! Who will be the winner?

Join our Facebook Event for the latest updates, and email claire.parklandscc@gmail.com to reserve your space.

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is coming

Starting from this coming Thursday (30th May) and for the following eleven days we will be joining with churches across the world in praying Thy Kingdom Come. We will be sharing the theme of the day via our Facebook page, so please get involved and #Pledge2Pray your thoughts and prayers as part of this global prayer movement.

Whether you have joined in Thy Kingdom Come before or not, we invite you to take part this year – along with churches from over 65 different denominations in 114 countries around the world.

Why not come on down to our weekly gathering at The Radio Wing at 11am on Sunday morning and pick up a prayer journal, or download the Thy Kingdom Come daily prayer app from either the App Store or the Play Store.

Follow the Easter trail

Following on from the popularity of our Advent Calendar windows back in December, this week we’re launching Easter Egg trails in both Flowerdown and Parklands.

From 14-20 April, take a walk and find the Easter eggs displayed in the windows of the houses on the maps. Each egg contains a word (or two) for you to collect and work out a Bible verse.

You can download PDFs of the maps here:

Bring your answers to the Parklands Pop-Up Cafe Easter Special on 20 April, 10am-noon at The Radio Wing, to claim a prize.

Gifts for Mum are back!

The weekend before Mother’s Day, get organised and bring the children along to The Radio Wing to make handmade cards and crafts for the special woman in their lives. We recognise that Motherhood takes lots of forms – so come and make something for your mother, grandmother, auntie, carer, or anyone else you want to say “thank you” to.

Come on down to The Radio Wing on Saturday 3 March from 3-5pm. This is a free event, and free drinks and cakes will also be available. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
