June 2018

June is another busy month, we are looking forward to the Grove & Wantage Extravaganza on 16th, a new cook starting on 20th to cover Steph’s maternity leave and hopefully a new coffee machine.

Steph has been working at Cornerstone for four and a half years but has been involved on and off for much longer, in fact she will tell you that she helped put together shelving before Cornerstone opened nearly 23 years ago! We will definitely miss her while she is on maternity leave.

Our current coffee machine is now over 7 years old and we have needed to call out an engineer more regularly in the last year so we have decided that now is the time to replace it. We have been very blessed by donations in the last year, which paid for the new floor and put a significant amount towards the new coffee machine. The new machine will be an upgraded version of the machine we have currently and we will be using the same coffee and hot chocolate, so we are expecting there to be very little change in the drinks we serve.

We are looking forward to serving drinks and free cake again at the Grove & Wantage Extravaganza on 16th June. If you are free to help us man the stall, to set up or to clear away at the end of the day, it would be much appreciated. We will be there 7.50am to start the day with prayer, you would be welcome to join us then too.

Christian Aid week last month was a success again. Our breakfasts raised £54.06 and the full total for Grove was £1343.76, so that is a brilliant total. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

This month’s Hot Meal Special will be chicken and mushroom pie, served at 12.30pm on Wednesday 27th June 2018 .

Finally, don’t forget the AGM is on 18th June 2018. We will be opening at 7.30pm for refreshments first and starting at 8pm, look forward to seeing you there if not before.

God bless,

Sarah Shewring
