Dabble Day

Do you fancy having ago at something you may not have tried before? On Saturday 16th June from 10.00 a.m. to about 2.30 p.m. we are holding a Dabble Day in the Church Hall. There will be 4 guided activities to choose from - Flower arranging (make an arrangement in a tea cup or beaker): Weaving (make a small picture with various wools); Stitched cards ( create a card with the embroidery on paper method); Artificial flowers (make carnations and roses from paper). No experience is needed; you will be guided every step of the way and will (hopefully!) have something to take home to treasure. You will be able to choose 2 of the activities but places at each session will be limited to 6 people, so we can only accommodate 24 people at one go. You will be asked to number the activities in your order of preference and will be given your first 2 choices if at all possible, but we may have to go to the 3rd or 4th choice if places are full. The cost of the day is £7.50 to include tea/coffee on arrival, lunch and the 2 activities. Booking is essential and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis - so get in early!

 

If you would prefer to attend just one session and do one activity, that is fine. The cost for each element - activities and lunch - is £2.50, so you just pay for what you attend.

 

Easter Celebrations

Festival of Crosses

During Passiontide and Holy Week we held a Festival of Crosses at St. Saviour's to examine what meaning the cross has for people. We were overwhelmed by the number and variety of crosses which appeared. A selection is below.
