Family Tea – 8 October 2017

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.

Upcoming Mother’s Day Tea -27 February 2016

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.

Family Tea – 11 October 2015

Oct Family TeaWe had an excellent turnout for our October tea this evening at Parkside, with over fifty people coming along.

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’.

Farewell tea for Elizabeth Pearce – 26 January 2014

After being with us at Parkside for over 50 years, Elizabeth is moving to be closer to her son, Nigel.

We arranged a small tea to bid her farewell and David Angell gave a short speech recounting some of her moments while she has been with us at Parkside.

He also presented her with a card and some vouchers for her to spend on something for her new house.

We’ll miss her at Parkside, but we know she’ll be back to visit us again soon.

Below are a few photos from the afternoon:

Family Tea – 14th October 2012

With many of our regular number away, we were delighted to have a large number of visitors for our Family Tea this afternoon.

We had around 70 people present to enjoy a mixture of sandwiches and cakes, culminating in the traditional jelly and ice cream.

Alan chaired the evening and, after tea, some of the children from Sunday Club came to the front to help him run through the Ten Commandments, a subject that they’ve been learning about recently on Sunday mornings.

They also enjoyed singing some of the choruses from Sunday Club, before Daniel Rudge came to speak over the tea table.

In a short, powerful message he told the story (from Numbers 20) of Moses striking the rock in the wilderness to bring forth water finishing with linking to 1 Corinthians 4:10 – ‘that rock was Christ’.

With the new ‘The Link Coffee Bar’, the upcoming baptism, the planned Light Night and the forthcoming Christmas activities we’re really looking forward to the weeks ahead.

Our next regular Family Service is on 18th November at 11.30am.
