GAP Travelling meal - Breakfast on Saturday 30th April 8am in Alton Methodist Church.
It will soon be time to sign up for the Breakfast we are hosting this year. We will be offering a full cooked breakfast after cereal and toast etc. or there will be yogurts and fruit for those who prefer a lighter start to the day. It will be served in the hall from 8am and all friends from the GAP churches are welcome.
Help needed for other events!!
I seem to have quite a lot of catering on my plate these days (forgive the pun!) so I would be very pleased to receive any offers of help in the kitchen!
I especially highlight the following:
The Annual Church Meeting - Sunday 20thMarch — tea is served after the meeting at 4pm and donations of cakes, scones etc. are welcome along with help to clear up and serve.
Wednesday 23rd March — help needed for simple tea and coffee after the production of "Impossible God" with Mark Topping (approx 8.30pm) This is a wonderful production and having seen it last year at Fleet I could really recommend it.
The GAP Breakfast on 30th April - help is needed setting tables, serving the food and clearing up.
Lunch Club -if you are at a loose end on Tuesdays we can always do with help at the Lunch Club- 2nd and 4th Tuesdays. It does not need to be long — an hour peeling vegetables or an hour clearing up or stay for the whole time! With Holidays coming up extra help is always welcome!
Bravefront Strawberry Tea — Tuesday 7th June at 6pm -7.30pm This year our church has agreed to run this event and I would be grateful for offers of scones, cakes etc. to go with the strawberries and cream. Naturally we also need people to serve and clear up and of course to eat the goodies!
Please speak to me if you are able to help with any of these.
