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?
In an exciting partnership with Manchester Archives at Central Library, Positive Steps is looking for people 50+ years old to come to Brunswick Church and share their stories on film of life in our community. Interview dates are:

Women's Footprints celebrated its first anniversary on 9th October 2018. What better way to do it than to support one of our women to run the group?
Our first year has been a journey that was meant to be. Lots of sharing, caring, learning tears and laughter. Lots and lots of laughter.
Many thanks to all that have and continue to support Women's Footprints.
The Celebration event at Brunswick church was a lot of fun. We gathered to celebrate all that goes in the our building, the volunteers who make it happen, and 25 years of Simon as our vicar. There was food (lots of it: thank you Mo and the ladies from 'Women's Footprints'), fun and fizz, and tunes from DJ Lee. It was that to see so many people coming together to enjoy each other's company and celebrate what a great community we have. As Simon said afterwards: "There's nothing quite like it when God's people party!"
