Worship Band News

After many years of great use, the church piano is broken beyond realistic repair.
We are currently using one which unfortunately is also faulty
To help in the purchase of a new one, any donations would be very gratefully received.
If, after donations, additional fund-raising is necessary, it will take place after the South Africa rebuild trip.

Rainbow Centre news

Our Churches supporting the Rainbow Centre would like to offer breakfast to some of their clients on Saturday mornings, 8-9.30am. This will be somewhere in the town centre (yet to be decided)

To do this we need people and help and ideas….

Please come along to a (one off) meeting on February 27th 7pm at Westborough. Tea, coffee and sticky buns will be served.

or if you can’t make that but want to be involved in some way then speak to Mark Haynes or Lesley Usher

After unprecedented requests for food parcels – the Rainbow sheds are bare!!  Would it be possible for your church to have a Rainbow food donation box?  The idea is that when doing your normal shopping trip you buy 1 or 2 extra items for the box.  These are often items on special offer.  If there is someone within your church who would be happy to coordinate this and contact me, I could arrange delivery/collections and answer any other questions you may have.  The Rainbow Centre is always grateful for your continued support in these difficult times!  Many thanks.

Riding Lights Theatre Company presents “Goose Chase”

Monday 23rd December: 2pm

Burniston & Cloughton Village Hall (YO13 0HJ)

Tickets: £5 / £20 (family ticket)

from Burniston Post Office / 01723 870484

In the depth of a Russian winter, what on earth could make frail old Baboushka cross hundreds of miles of snow on foot?

And why is she armed only with a feather duster and a set of Russian dolls?

Perhaps it’s the whispers of revolution, fuelled by Igor the oppressed singer and stablehand. Or is it the birth of a harmless baby, the one that’s got king Herod in a really foul temper. Whatever the reason, the closer Baboushka gets to the end of her mission, the more it seems the only person she can trust is, well, a goose… because not everyone racing to find the baby is bringing gifts.

Goose Chase is a startling reworking of the famous Russian folk story, served up richly spiced with traditional songs and carols. Touring from 19th of November to 23rd of December 2013, Riding Lights tells the tale with a characteristic blend of riotous humour, mystery, and magical glimpses into the heart of the first Christmas.

Goose Chase lasts one hour, and is recommended for age 5 and up.
