Fifth Sunday event - Phoenix Praise Band, Sunday 31st March
Following our Christmas Games and Nibbles social evening in December, our next "5th Sunday of the month" event was a song-learning session with Phoenix Praise band. We learnt some new Easter songs and then sang them as part of a short worship service led by Phoenix. Everyone then enjoyed tea/coffee and cakes.
Children's Crafts for Mothering Sunday
We hosted free children's craft activities on the Saturday afternoon to make butterfly-themed gifts for Mothering Sunday, with afternoon tea provided for the adults. Over 80 people attended this very successful event and some beautiful gifts were made. The next craft day will probably be during Advent for Christmas. Check back here or follow our Facebook page to keep informed.
Quiz Night - 16th February
Our quiz night was very popular and raised £491.50 in aid of this year's Circuit charity, Hospice at Home. The pie and peas were delicious, as was the wide selection of homemade puddings. There was a Fairtrade raffle for a hamper and other Fairtrade goodies. The 8 quiz teams all did brilliantly. Thank you to everyone who made it such an enjoyable event.
As part of Egremont town's Winter Wonderland and Christmas Lights Switch-on, we again provided a variety of craft activities for accompanied children with an Advent or Christmas theme. All activities were free of charge and refreshments were also provided.
Christmas Coffee Morning
Our annual Christmas fundraiser with various stalls and popular homemade lunches and refreshments raised £985 for church funds. Thank you to everyone who came.
One World Week event - Wednesday 10th October
Organised by Churches Together in Egremont and District, this event celebrated One World Week with a talk on "Medical Adventures in Africa" by Dr. Claire Summers of St. Bees. A delicious African meal was provided before the talk, and donations were collected for the Indonesia Earthquake appeal.
Harvest Celebrations - Sunday September 23rd
Our morning service included a food collection for the Foodbank while we considered our church's mission. In the evening we held a special praise service with Phoenix Praise band followed by a bring and share supper. This was enjoyed by friends from across our Mission Community including St Bees and Cleator.
Christian Aid Big Brekkie - Saturday 19th May

Our solemn Lent Cross was transformed with flowers on Easter Day to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
Moving Mountains Mission 8th-11th March
Our ecumenical mission events were very well received including a Mothers' Day afternoon tea with children's crafts and nail painting, and a talk on one of our member's rock-climbing expeditions with quiz and food.
Our annual circuit memorial service on 5th November was an opportunity to remember people no longer with us and to give thanks for their lives. "A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam. And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so blessed to have seen it." (Author unknown)
5 Year Celebration
On the weekend of 21st/22nd October 2017, we celebrated 5 years since the opening of The Meeting Place. On Saturday we held a community event with free food and drink and children's activities, and several of our usergroups demonstrated their activities. On Sunday morning, Keith Hudson and the Phoenix Praise Band led an inspiring worship service. This was followed by our first ever church-family Sunday lunch out.
