What's on in the week

Enjoy spending time with us...

One of the signs that we are a friendly and welcoming church family is that we have a lot of mid-week activities.  We invite you to join us at one or more of the following.  For details of our children and families, and youth activities, please see Children and Youth.

 

4U Community Café

The 4U Community Café is open on Thursdays from 9.00am to 1.00pm.  You can find us in St. David's Church Hall on Eastern Avenue South, NN2 7QB.  If you haven't been inside our building before, the hall door is the one in the car park.  The Café provides a central hub for local residents and offers good quality food and drink as well as a safe environment for families and people of all ages to meet.  The Café is a not-for-profit project run by local volunteers and is part of a nationwide project called 'The Real Junk Food Project'.  We reclaim food from the local supermarkets that would otherwise go to waste.  The Café operates a 'pay as you feel' policy which means that you can come and eat good healthy food for a donation of your choice.  We serve a cooked breakfast and a varied menu of hot dinners.

If you are interested in volunteering in our Café or want to find out more about us, please contact Cheryll Lowe (07916264317)

Mothers' Union

The Mothers' Union ​is an international Christian charity which aims to demonstrate the Christian faith in action by prayer, campaigns, projects, promotion of a stable family life and is made up of members across the world.

Mothers' Union was founded in 1876 by Mary Sumner, the wife of the vicar at Old Arlesford in Hampshire.  Sixteen years later, on 26th April 1892, the first meeting of the Kingsthorpe branch of the Mothers' Union was held in the infant school in Kingsthorpe Village.  Its members have been involved in many projects over the years encompassing the Church and the Deanery.  Although the times have changed we are still involved with the life of the church and wider community.  The branch continues to thrive and includes members from all three churches in the parish - St David, St John the Baptist and St Mark.

We are a very active branch and aim to be an active presence and support all the three churches activities.  Our aim as a branch is to provide friendship, fellowship and fun, supporting each other in times of adversity as well as joy and following the aims and objectives of Mothers' Union.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month, starting at 2 pm, at St David's Church.  Prayer meetings are held once a month usually on the third Tuesday in the afternoon at 3 pm at a member's house.  This can vary depending on the time  of the year and we do not meet in January but continue our personal prayers at home.

For information on our current programme please contact Jane Serbyn (07896981011).  For more information on the Mothers' Union, please follow this LINK.

 Please see the Church Calendar on the main What's on page for our next meeting.
