Secret Angels

 

24th March 2018 - - 2.30 to 5.00

Join Saltmine Theatre Company’s Secret Angels, as they embark on a mission, a secret mission, from … Well, that’s classified. Jordan is eleven. She’s had a bad day, she keeps getting things wrong and she feels a bit invisible.

Her HOPElevels are seriously low. But this is before Micky and Gabby come crashing into her room.

These secret agents with a twist know the solution, and introduce Jordan to the Book of Hope.

Jordan’s room comes alive with planets and stars, shepherds and kings, and a bewildered innkeeper who just can’t sleep.

But what difference can this story make?

Where Adventure Begins - Faith in the family (Epsom)

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm

All Saints Community Hall, Fulford Road, West Ewell, Epsom, Surrey, KT19 9QZ

Description

Family is far from simple... Brace yourselves as bold church leaders plunge headlong into the dizzy world of young discipleship.

Gasp as perplexed parents hang on for the white-knuckle ride of the teenage years. Thrill in amazement as overworked, relentlessly positive Youth Worker, Ryan, negotiates a string of minor disasters on the famous camping trip to Wales.

And what of Winston the cat’s role in family prayers?

Meet Jake, Jasmine and Ellie as they re-live their childhood and teenage experiences of Christian faith at home and at church. Nobody knows how it will turn out, but everyone’s agreed that we need to keep together on the adventure of faith. In a brilliantly entertaining show – real, touching, hilarious –

Riding Lights create an unmissable piece of theatre to deepen our understanding of ‘family’.

Book on line to register in advance or pay on the door.

No tickets will be sent out in advance. Pricing £10 each

********************

Epsom Chamber Choir will be singing the music of JS Bach, his forebears and others who influenced him, performing under

guest conductor Jack Apperley, in the wonderful setting of St Martin of Tours Church, Epsom.

Two of Johann Sebastian Bach’s finest and most dramatic motets will be at the heart of the concert: ‘Komm, Jesu Komm’ and ‘Jesu Meine Freude’.

Also being performed are works by three other Bachs (Johannes, Johann Christoph and Johann Michael),

and music by two further composers who influenced the great man: Heinrich Schütz and Johann Kuhnau.

This concert delivers a unique perspective that pays tribute to the music of the men on whose shoulders JS Bach stands.

JS’s own influence continues, and the choir will also sing a 20th century re-imagining of a Bach chorale

 by Norwegian composer Knut Nystedt.

Needed Volunteer cooks for the St Barnabas Church - Monday drop in:

St Barnabas  provide approximately 30 weeks of dinners during the year, and feed between 25-30 people each week. 

We do not meet on Bank Holidays, during August and we have a number of outings for which a meal is not required. 

Our volunteer cooks provide the main dish which is usually delivered around 5-5.30pm.  At present we have six cooks so this works out at about 5 times a year. 

Our number of cooks has gone down these last few years due to illness, moving away etc., so we are hoping to find some replacements so the cooks will not have to cook so often.  

The cooks choose their own meals.  At present we are given a variety of dishes including chicken pies, curries, shepherds pie, mince and pasta, sausages and roast beef. 

 We can provide black plastic trays to cook the dinner in,  and  provide vegetables and whatever else is needed to go with the main dish, plus  puddings and cheese.

 We are of course willing to cover the cost of the meal as required.

If the meals need to be collected this can be arranged.

If you feel you could only provide one or two meals a year this would be appreciated. 

Naturally the more cooks we have the less number of weeks the cooks would be asked to cook.

I have been arranging these meals for four years (I took over from a lady who had done it for six years!). 

A  list for the year is prepared hence everyone knows well in advance when they are cooking - but nothing is set in stone - dates can be altered.

Looking forward to hearing from you. 

 And please do be in touch with any questions before making a decision.

Thank you so much for your time.
