Afternoon Tea on Sunday 12th November
3.30-5pm in the Pathfinder CofE Primary School Hall
Every half term, Pathfinder Church Northstowe host an afternoon tea that not only brings together those from across the Northstowe Church Network (those involved in Little Explorers
, etc) but also our friends, neighbours, and those involved in other community groups. It is a joy to see those of all religious and non religious backgrounds simply spending time together. Often, we'll serve a seasonal treat - pancakes, hot cross buns - or scones and cakes.
For many, this is simply a time to "hang out" and be. The tables have board games and colouring. The baby and toddler area is set up. And news is shared on the rolling screen.
Around the room, there will also be various activity and reflection stations. Some of these might be Prayer Stations or Exploration Stations from the recent Sunday Gathering
series, or linked to an upcoming festival. Others will simply be for fun.
We always set up a "side chapel" as a quiet place where anyone can pause and reflect. And we offer a simple poetic spoken communion service as an option, while other activities continue.
One of the main features of the Afternoon Teas, however, are the workshops. And this half term, Northstowe Arts will be running a Lantern Making workshop, ready to Light Up Longest Night.
This workshop is aimed at those ages 7 and above,. but we will also have paper-bag lanterns on hand that those of any age can decorate more easily.
