St Aidan's Film Night


How about spending a Saturday evening once a month in the company of other parishioners watching a film? Film night will be making a return to St Aidan's Parish Room again next month so all you have to do is to bring yourself, your friends, eats and drinks, sit back, relax and enjoy the film.  There is no charge for the event!


With the continuing success of the current arrangements, we have another special film night DOUBLE BILL starting at 5pm on Saturday 20th  October with a family film as chosen by our young people, followed by an older persons choice at 7pm - though still rated as a 12 and suitable for family so feel free to come along and stay for both films....bring a cushion and don't forget your popcorn!!


Next Showing - Saturday 24th November - 5pm & 7pm.  Films TBC




St Aidan’s Luncheon Club:


The next event for our Lunch Club will be a traditional 3 course Christmas Dinner prepared by St Aidans Kitchen Team.


In order to help the catering team plan for numbers we ask that you sign up for the next lunch which will be the last of the year. *Please note* This will be a ticket only event and there is a charge of £7 per person

The luncheon club meet on the last Friday of every month to serve a hearty home cooked meal in the parish room. This is an event that you can confidently bring your friends along to, not only is the food freshly cooked but the company is also great and lively! If you haven't been to one of these lunches before then you really don't know what you're missingThere is no charge for the regular lunches but the opportunity will be given in lieu to make a charitable donation to well known charities nominated on the day.

St Aidan’s Skills Demonstration:


As part of our ongoing Skills Programme with the Craft & Chatter group we are now offering a 6week course to learn some basic woodworking.  Places are strictly limited so please sign up as soon as possible to make sure you can get involved.


It is so encouraging to see people coming forward to share their skills, thanks to Melvyn Abrahams for running the first session of the basic woodwork course.  We have several more volunteers willing to share their skills. We will run a single wine tasting session before Christmas and if there is sufficient interest run further sessions in the New Year, and we will also run a number of sessions on relaxation techniques (including massage) and complimentary therapies in the New Year. Further information on how to sign up will follow. If you have skills you could share—please let us know, the variety of skills that people in our congregations have never ceases to amaze me—and you might be amazed what people would be interested to learn!


Next event - Thursday 1st November (Week 3)
