We went with Adam, Anna & Abi to celebrate Adam & Anna’s birthdays.
Isla was laid to rest last Friday (27-july) and we had the Celebration Party in Argents Mead.
Attended a great talk at Hinckley Methodist Church yesterday.
“Lest we Forget” Greg Drozdz told us the story of the annual Poppy Appeal and how it started. He also spoke on some of the names on the War Memorials in the Church.
The following was take from a leaflet give out in Hinckley after the Good Friday Walk of Witness
THE VINE CHRISTIAN BOOK AND COFFEE SHOP
With the closure of The Sycamore Tree in Nuneaton, The Vine is now the only Christian Resource Centre between Coventry and Leicester, and hereabouts. We would love you to call in and see what we have to offer.
Monday to Friday 9am til 4pm though early closing is at 2pm on Thursdays, and Saturdays are from 9am until 3pm.
We are tucked away off Regent Street Hinckley, next to The Church in The Borough, Hinckley URC. No more than a minute off the beaten track. We are easy to access and a warm welcome awaits. Why not call in for a coffee or a cuppa and a light lunch and to browse when you are next in Town?
We have the best selection in Town of greetings cards ‘with a text‘ for all occasions.
We support local crafters and have lots of speciality gifts on show.
We are Fairtrade and have a wide range of products available.
We order and supply Christian music, books, Church Resources, Bibles, etc for all ages and for children in particular. We love both Church and personal orders.
We are a listening ear for many. A prayer support for some.
We hold advertised workshops and host a weekly knitting group.
We serve excellent food and drinks.
We have a facebook page.Web site Facebook link
We always have room for new volunteers of all ages. Please speak to Katherine. Many ﬁnd this Service a real personal blessing.
We would appreciate more people joining us as ‘Friends of The Vine‘. Please ask.
We are always in need of your patronage. All Christian Book and Coffee Shops across the country need the support of the local congregations as their core business if they are to sun/ive and thrive during the economic downturns and the great want of Christian Witness. We trust that you will regard us as worthy of yours and come and see us.
Good Friday 2016
A large group of Christians started out at St Peter’s and made their way to the Market Place.
Stopping to sing and pray outside the recently closed Co-op on Castle St and by Bell Entry.
A very large group of us worshiped in the bright sunshine, gathered around the Cross.
The Church Lads and Church girls Marching band of Hinckley & Atherstone played for us to sing along.
Tributes to Jane Gibbs (who has recently died) and Malcolm Clarke (who is about to retire from active preaching) were made before we finished up at the URC in the Borough for hot drinks and Hot Cross Buns to chat with all our friends from other Churches.
