Cafe shares some autumn colour

It may have been chilly and grey outside, but today (October 12th) in The Radio Wing there were the burnt oranges and reds of autumn as kids of all ages tried their hands at leaf-related crafts at the October Parklands Pop-Up Cafe.

Those who weren’t feeling crafty enjoyed some fantastic home made cake and Fairtrade teas and coffees. If you couldn’t make it to this month’s cafe, the next Parklands Pop-Up Cafe is on Saturday 16th November, 10am-noon in The Radio Wing.

First Parklands film night

With the church about to begin looking at the story of Moses in its Sunday Gatherings, we are putting on the first Parklands Family Film Night to get together and watch the 1998 Dreamworks classic, The Prince of Egypt.

Come on down to The Radio Wing on Friday 6th September for a free night of entertainment, with hot drinks and popcorn provided. The doors open at 6.15pm, with the feature presentation starting at 6.30pm.

Getting crafty for the dads

Join us at The Radio Wing on Saturday 15 June from 10am to Noon for the March Parklands Pop Up Cafe. This is a space for people from the community to get to know each other over a cuppa. There’ll also be cakes and cookies available as well as some Father’s Day Craft activities for children.

‘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:

Easter is Coming

We’re now less than two weeks away from Easter (as you’ve probably guessed if you’ve got kids on school holidays now), and we’re counting down until the time we remember Jesus’ death and celebrate His resurrection.

On Saturday 20 April at 10am we have our regular monthly Parklands Pop-Up Cafe… but with a difference. As well as our usual cakes and drinks, we’ll have a family-friendly scavenger hunt and hot cross buns!

Then on Sunday 21 April at 11am, join us as we celebrate the Good News of Easter. We’ll start out our morning with bacon rolls, followed by a short service with activities for children.

Both events are held at The Radio Wing.

Pop in for Pop-Up Cafe Mother’s Day
