Friends Newsletter

September 2017

There will be some exciting visitors at Cornerstone in the next few months.

The first is an author who is coming all the way from Canada. Sandra Marie Lewis has written a novel called Just Where You Stand which follows the ladies of three generations of her family starting down the road in 1840s’ Abingdon and finishing in 1990s’ Toronto. It deals with their Baptist roots and deep questions of faith among other things. Sandra will be here on 16th September 11-2pm to answer questions about her book and to sign copies. Do come in to meet her. I know she has been looking forward to this visit.

As you know from last month’s newsletter, on Saturday October 21st 3–4pm, for the usual St John’s Tea Party there will be special guests. The Flower of the Quern will be playing and St John’s would like to welcome members of all the Cornerstone Churches to join them for this special treat. 

September is the month we release the Christmas Menu and start taking bookings for our very popular lunches. Come in to pick up a booking form. As previous years, we expect some dates to be fully booked almost straightaway and others to have spaces right into November. So if you know you want to come on a particular day, you do need to consider booking early!

Make & Bake is back on 8th September and will be running every Friday, 9.30-11am, until the October half term and them again after until Christmas. We have some exciting stories, crafts and bakes planned. It’s just £2 per child; under 1’s are free.

This month’s Hot Meal Special will be Roast Dinner, we will confirm the full details later on in the month. As always it will be served at 12.30pm on the last Wednesday, 30th August. The Age UK Information stand is back this month, 10-12pm on the same day.  

God bless,
