We’re looking forward to our next Family Tea, which will take place on Sunday, 8 October from 5pm.
We hope that you’ll be able to join us.
On Sunday, 6 March, we’ll once again be celebrating Mother’s Day with a tea, to which all are warmly invited, at 5pm.
This popular fixture in our annual calendar is always well attended, with a good supply of food and ‘bottomless’ cups of tea on offer. Our suggestion is to arrive early to get a good seat.
Following the tea, we’ll enjoy a brief time of singing and a short talk from the Bible and our time together is usually over by 6:30pm.
As a change, we’d arranged the tables differently to how we normally have them set out and opted to effectively have two long tables down the main hall (each four tables long). Not only did this seem to create more space, it also made it easier for people to talk to each other, rather than everyone being on separate ‘islands’. Continue reading “Family Tea – 11 October 2015”
We looking forward to our next family tea, which is coming up this weekend, on Sunday afternoon at 5pm.
With a good spread of food on offer (including scones!), it’s a great opportunity to catch up with friends over a tasty tea.
Once everyone has finished, we’ll probably have some singing and Alan will close the evening off with a short talk over the tea table.
We hope that you’ll be able to join with us and look forward to seeing you.
We had around 70 people along for our second Family Tea of the year, following the good turnout at Mother’s Day.
It was good to welcome both old friends along and also to meet those who were joining us for the first time.
Following a filling tea of sandwiches and cakes followed by jelly and ice cream, David Hedges chaired the evening which begun with the singing of a few of the Sunday Club favourites.
Afterwards, we were very pleased that Ken Ward from Cherith, who used to meet with us in Maidenhead, was able to come and speak for a few minutes.
Ken brought his walking boots with him and used them as a visual aid to talk about the two paths mentioned in Matthew 7:14. He spoke about two different tracks up Snowdon and the fact that there were two paths that we could take in our lives.
In a powerful address, he pointed out that Parkside wasn’t just about coming along to enjoy a nice tea, but that we were keen to point people towards the Lord Jesus and share with them what He had done for us.
Our next Family Service is on November 6th at the usual time of 11.30am.
