Once again we're collecting filled Shoe Boxes for Operation Christmas Child. We
have Go Boxes available at 50p each which will save having to cover a shoe box.
Items to include are stationery, warm hat/gloves/scarf, hygiene items, cuddly toy (not
hand knitted) and something to play with. A donation of £5/box will help with
transport costs. If you can't fill a whole box, donations of any of the above can be
left in the Welcome Hall. Or you could sponsor a box for £10 and we'll fill it for you.
Last hand in date is Sunday 11th November. Any questions, ask Irene Morrison,
Chris Trufitt or Linda Seabrook.
The Triangle’ Christmas Open Evening
Dear all, a Xmas Open Evening will be held in the shop on Wednesday 7
between 7.00 pm and 9.30 pm. There is a poster advertising the event in the Welcome
Hall. Please pass on the message about this event to as many people as possible and
encourage them to come and support it. This year is particularly important because of
the ‘Plea from Traidcraft’ It’s a popular event every year, with lots of products for
Christmas presents, with special offers as well. The shop is usually well attended for
the event but we will always have room for more! Finally, if it’s a house group night, why
not bring the members here for the evening! Thank you for your support
THE HIDING PLACE
THE HIDING PLACE
The extraordinary life of Corrie Ten Boom in occupied Holland, told in music, dance and drama
St Christopher’s Church, Cove, 23rd, 24th, 26th & 27th October 2018 at 7pm
Tickets £10 / £7 from hidingplace2018 @ gmail.com and 07761 600384
Presented by Churches Together, www.parishofcove.org.uk
‘The Hiding Place’ is a musical collaboration between people from churches across Cove and beyond. It weaves music, dance and drama to explore the extraordinary life of Corrie Ten Boom before, during and after the Second World War. Corrie was a Christian watchmaker in Haarlem, Holland. With her family and resistance network she opposed the occupying forces by sheltering and supporting many Dutch Jews, risking everything for the sake of others. 'The Hiding Place' has a message of action, love, forgiveness, and reconciliation that has relevance to us today.
As with previous presentations ‘Life Lines’, ‘Throwaway Children’ and ‘Come to the Table’, ‘The Hiding Place’ is written and directed by Nicholas and Andrea Young and features music from a full choir and soloists alongside dance from members of a local ballet school. The production uses an eclectic collection of music ranging from classical, musicals and spirituals to comedy and gospel songs. Writers and composers include J.S. Bach, Graham Kendrick, Brian Howard, Ken Medema, Flanders & Swann, Mozart, and Stuart Townend, with a number of arrangements by Nigel Swinford of the New English Orchestra.
Please note that the subject matter covered may not be suitable for younger children.
Some of you may already be aware of the difficult situation at Traidcraft. Traidcraft plc, the Fairtrade pioneers whose church-based retailers have transformed shopping in the UK, subject to consultation, could cease trading by the end of 2018, after 40 years’ trading, unless a solution can be found in the coming month. This is a very sad position for this leading Fairtrade supplier who, as a Christian based supplier, has led many organisations in this country to support and promote Fairtrade. More information about the reasons for this situation arising can be found on their website: It has not been easy, and now Fairtrade is obviously becoming further squeezed by the economy, and the supermarkets. They ask for support as we approach this critical Christmas period, and we will be doing our best to do so through our own stocks here.
In turn, therefore, we ask that you might be willing to just spend that little more in order to support this Christian based organisation. Please contact us if you need further information, or of course contact Traidcraft direct. See for more details of the organization. Thank you. Paul Taylor, General Manager, ‘The Triangle’
