Gardening Day at Yew Lane


On Saturday 27th April we’re having another gardening day. With all the snow and poor gardening weather that we’ve had at the start of this year, we’ve got a fair bit of Spring tidying to do …. plus we’re relaying and filling the hedge at the back and planting new fruit trees and new planters.

There ‘ll be a soup lunch for anyone wanting to come so we hope to see you there.

The session will start at 10am with lunch around 12.30pm, feel free to come for a long or short a time as you want.


New Activities & Services for the Cross


We’re looking to improve facilities at Yew Lane in the next 12-18months. We hope this will include new kitchen facilities, a new activity room, with potential for creche space and new double glazing.

So the question now is: What new activities and services would you like to see the building being used for?

Here’s some suggestions from other people – but we’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts too, you can add your comments below.

  • Art therapy sessions
  • Dance therapy sessions
  • Gardening therapy sessions
  • Other therapeutic sessions
  • Counselling & support services
  • Adult education / learning
  • Sessions for adults with learning disabilities
  • Guided meditation
  • Relaxation classes

Quiet Day (Re arranged date)

January snow in Parson Cross park

The Quiet Day which was postponed from 18th January because of snow – will now take place on 2nd February.

It will still be led by Rev Judith Jessop and will be around the theme of “My God – Our image of God”

Do you see God as some stern old wo/man demanding our very best at all times on pains of punishment and withdrawal of love ….. or maybe as some kind of “Fairy” Godmother/father who just waits in the wings ready to grant your every wish. Or maybe you see God very differently …..

As how we see God shapes how we develop and grow in faith the question of what God is like is an important one for all believers.

Quiet Day – Our Image of God


GodThink about God …..   what images come into mind?

How we see God is really important when it comes to  deepening our faith and relationship with God. Our first  Quiet Day of 2013 this Saturday (18th January) led by Rev Judith Jessop will help you to explore your image of God.


As the forecast for this weekend is for significant amounts of snowfall it will be worth ringing Judith on Friday evening to check if the Quiet Day is running or not ….. she can be contacted on 0114 2313518
