Coffee Morning 14th May

Posted by on Mar 22, 2016 in Articles, Events | 0 comments

To provide scholarships for poor tea estate students in Sri Lanka ‘Put the kettle on’ and ‘Let’s have a cuppa’ are familiar expressions in our households. We import teas from China, India, Kenya, Sri Lanka and other countries and blend them to suit our taste. Tea was first introduced to Sri Lanka in 1867 by James Taylor, a British planter who arrived there in that year. Other planters followed from all over the UK and tea cultivation became established. Some estates still bear the names of English counties, namely Dorset, Devon and Somerset. Some English planters built their houses in Tudor...

Church on Show – The Great Yorkshire Show

Posted by on Mar 22, 2016 in Can You Help?, Events | 0 comments

I am writing to invite you to be a steward at the Church on Show stand at The Great Yorkshire Show this year which runs from 12th -14th July. The stand is a creative prayer space and is always a blessing to be involved with, as all kinds of people with lots of faith and none wander in and take time to spend with God. We are looking for stewards to help cover the six sessions across the three days, morning (8.30am – 1pm) or afternoon (12.30pm – 5pm) on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. If you are interested in helping at one or more sessions please let me know as soon as possible, indicating...

Saturday April 30th, 3.00 pm at St John’s Church Hall Bilton. Worshipping God is a must for all Christians and it takes many forms as we all know. So it is that at Songs of Praise we enjoy ourselves, singing heartily, listening carefully, and sharing with each other moments and memories of importance. For those who cannot often get to Sunday worship, coming to Songs of Praise is an important means of still being part of the worshipping community of St John’s and St Luke’s Together, and it helps maintain long-held friendships for those who cannot meet up often. Join us as we praise God and...

Water Aid Coffee Morning

Posted by on Jan 26, 2016 in Events | 0 comments

Saturday, March 12 10.00am – 12.00noon Pollution – we have all seen in the papers or on TV recently the floods and polluted water. The water certainly did not look very pleasant and I imagine the smell wasn’t either. Imagine if you had to wash in and even drink similarly polluted water. Sadly many still have to, knowing that there is a high risk of infection. There are still villages in many parts of the world without a water pump and therefore no chance of clean water.There may be one in a nearby village but that can take many hours each day to collect. With your help, we can...
