October 2011 (2)

The Thursday after the Harvest celebrations, we held a harvest meal. Entitled "Five Crops and Choruses", the format was similar to the "Five courses and Carols" event held before Christmas each year, but hymns and songs appropriate to the season were sung.

Some of the recipes were obtained from the internet. This sweet slice was called Harvest slice. The recipe stated that each slice would feed 6, so we made one per table, however, each slice would have easily fed at least 12.

During the month, there were the usual variety of events:

Bible Fellowships.

Mens' breakfast, which will continue through the winter.

Ladies' meeting.

Overseas Sunday.

Planning meeting to examine our programme for next year.

We also hosted a concert by the Jubal Gospel Choir, organised by the Sheffield and District Organists and Choirmasters Association on Saturday 15th.

At the end of the month, on Monday 31st, we held our "Festival of Light".

A variety of seasonal food was eaten.

And craft activities were available.

The visitors had a good time, and were able to avoid the more antisocial elements of the evening.
