'Sing for Joy'
have rested their voices over the summer period
and will be back for more singing on
Friday 19th October 2018
 
'Sing for Joy'
If you have ever longed for a bit of "me" time or have ever wanted to sing in a group but never had the opportunity or confidence, then this group is for you! Led by Kate Woolf, they come together just for fun and the love of singing. No auditions, no need to read music ¬ just bags of enthusiasm and a willingness to sing with others.
There'll be a chance for a cup of tea and a chat at the end too, so do come along and give it a try ¬ singing has such a hugely positive impact on mood, body and soul!
For more details, contact
Kate Woolf (01954-200975) or
Susan Meah (01954-781258).

Mini-Jaffas
meet again on
2nd, 9th, 16th & 30th
October 2018
Mini-Jaffas
Mini-Jaffas is for parents with pre-school children. Mini-Jaffas meet in All Saints' Church Longstanton at 10.30am, for a short informal time of worship followed by craft activities, related to the theme and refreshments. This is an excellent way of introducing young children to worship, as well as being a good way of meeting other parents within the local community. Those who have had their children baptised will find this a great way of keeping their baptismal promises. Just turn up and you will be guaranteed a warm welcome at either venue.

for
All Saints' Church Longstanton
The Friends 'Events Team'

Do you like a party? Do you want to further the work of the church in Longstanton? Then come and join the Events Team and help to plan and organize a calendar of social and fundraising events for All Saints'. Any money raised will go to the re­ordering project but it is not all about money.

This is a chance to get to know each other better and bring in those who, at the moment, are outside our church family. There are already lots of ideas floating around including a weekly tea party or coffee morning in the church and a Charity Fashion Show scheduled for October/November.

If you are interested, please call Sue Gamon on 01954 782371 or email sgcoutures64@gmail.com for more information.

What is
 "OPEN
 THE
 BOOK"?
What is "OPEN THE BOOK"?
OPEN THE BOOK is a project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible, presented chronologically, during the school year.All the stories for the first year are taken from "The Lion Storyteller" written by Bob Hartman.

There are a further two years of themed material for schools who wish to continue after the first year.OPEN THE BOOK fulfils both OFSTED and Church Schools inspection requirements for Collective Worship, and has been successfully used in a multi-faith context.We are delighted to have been invited to take the project into Hatton Park School and we hope that the team delivering the programme as well as the children really enjoy the presentations.

The first term has gone really well and the children are responding very positively.Do keep praying for the project, and for the whole school as it goes through a time of change in the coming year.

Mustard Seed

This is a coffee shop with a difference! It is not a church event, and is open to everyone. Families with young children are also welcome, and we will make toys available. Come and have a chat over coffee/tea (served in individual pots) and home­made cake. Hot chocolate may also be available.
Depending on the week, we also sell:

7 locally grown produce (as available)
7 home­made crafts (usually the 1st Thursday of the month)
7 2nd hand books (for donations)

Volunteer help is always welcome ­ just come along and offer your services. Do let us know if you have any ideas on how we might broaden the appeal. We aim to create a "community hub" where friendship and community can be deepened.
For people selling their own produce and crafts we would ask for a minimum 10% commission.
Volunteer help always welcome - telephone 230329.
