Another great Community Carol Service, with guest readers, fun sketches, songs and carols and a talk by Jess about Christmas movies (who knew there was so much in them?). And the festive finger food with mulled wine to follow. Big thanks to everyone who worked hard to make it happen and thanks to all who contributed. There's more to come at Brunswick this Christmas, including our Christingle service next Sunday.
Last Friday, Brunswick Church, S4B, Arawak Housing, Manchester College and the Women's Footprints group teamed up to put on a Festive Community Ball to remember. With live music from the Royal Northern College of Music and a jazz band and a set from our resident DJ Simon, we were soaking up the festive atmosphere. Dressed up to the nines we were given the red carpet treatment and with fantastic food, fun and laughter there was no better way to start the season.
For those of you who came, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. For those of you who didn't manage to make it, click here for lots more good stuff happening in the next two weeks to celebrate Christmas. We hope you'll be able to join us.
It's almost December – first week of Advent this Sunday – so time to announce our events for Christmas this year. Full details here. If it's been a while or if you've never really checked out what Christmas is actually all about, there is some good news for you to hear. Come along and celebrate with us this year.
Women's Footprints had a workshop in planting and caring for various plants. They are house plants and succulents with compost hand mixed by the group, moss and stone toppings for decorations and top tips to look after them – i.e. don’t water them!!
Some photos from an amazing event today where our Women's Footprints group hosted ladies from a Women's Institute from Youlgreave in the Peak District. Lots more local people came along to add to the welcome and fun. Bollywood dancing, arts and crafts, and of course lots of amazing food. Thanks to all whose hard work made the day such a success.
Photos from our Big Cook this evening. Over 200 meals prepared for our guests coming to the Winter Night Shelter each Monday night from November through to January. All will be frozen ready for reheating week by week. All ingredients, apart from the meat, were DONATED by Bookers Ardwick. Big Thanks to them and to everyone who helped. Who know onions could be so much fun?
