Everyone who hears the words of Jesus and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. (Matthew 7.24-25)

Bread Making!

Tuesdays: 14, 28 August 2018 

Mondays: 10 Sep, 22 Oct, 19 Nov, 17 Dec and 21 Jan.

From 10.30am to around 2pm, at Holy Spirit Church Hall.

Want to join us in making  bread, a light lunch and sharing time together? Speak with Rosemary, Mike, Julie or Norma or click here to email us.

Pictured below, with facilitator Peter, is our team who went to Somewhere Else church in Liverpool, to explore what fun bread making can be. We prepared and kneaded our bread, helped by Peter, Cindy and 13 year old Jess. While the bread was proving, we had a cuppa and a time of sharing together led by Revd Ian. After the bread was baked, 26 of us shared a lunch of bread and soup,  delicious! We left and shared bread buns with strangers in Liverpool, to bless them. Want to know more about bread making here in Greenside Parish? Talk to Rosemary, Mike, Norma, Julie or Georgia May.
