What: Afternoon of food, drink, activities and films for all ages.
When: Sunday September 17th, 10am til 3pm.
Where: Eyre Chapel, Newbold Chesterfield.
Who: Everyone welcome!

On Sunday September 17th 2017, we are once again holding a ‘Parish Day’ where all members of our parish, along with their friends and family, are invited to join us after the Liturgy for an afternoon of food, drink, activities and more. There will be a marquee set up so the weather will not stop us! The Divine Liturgy will be served at 10:00am (earlier than normal) followed by food and drink reflecting the diversity of our parish. This year:

  • Discover more about St Cuthbert with films and a treasure hunt for all the family.
  • Sample food and drink reflecting the diversity of our parish.
  • Try Capoeira – a popular martial-art/dance from Brazil.
  • Make arts and crafts to take home

Plus: Face-painting, piñata, Orthodox library and whatever else we can fit in!

If you have a special dish or some food from your hometown that you would like to share, please bring it along – the food will be blessed after the Liturgy. Any food or drink (wines, fruit juices etc.) you would like to bring along are very welcome and will be appreciated.

After lunch, there will be activities for children and adults. There will also be a corner for Orthodox books available to borrow and read at home. The books will be from Fr Edwin and Dn Jonathan’s own collections.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join us. Bring your friends and family too!

If you are interested in helping us out, or just want to know more, contact:

Please make every effort to be present.  This day is an excellent opportunity to get to know people in our parish and locally and will help us to grow as a community.

Father Edwin’s Name Day, Saturday October 12th

Have a happy, blessed and restful(?) day, Father Edwin!  With much love from us all.

 

Troparion of St Edwin

Tone 4

Having accepted the true Faith, O righteous Edwin,/ thou wast found worthy to exchange thy worldly crown/ for the crown of martyrdom/ at the hands of the godless Mercians./ Inspired by thy example,/ we beseech thee to pray that we may have the courage to fight evil in any form/ that we too may receive the reward of eternal blessedness.
