Outlook is the St Luke's newsletter that goes to each house in the parish three times a year, free of charge. Print copies are available from church - the Easter 2014 edition is available now. Scroll down to view it. Apologies that the photos look a bit "blocky" or fuzzy - we don't know why. To see them as intended, try downloading Outlook and viewing it in Acrobat.
Dads & Tods
Dads and offspring (age 0-4) meet on (usually) the third Saturday of each month (but not August) for play and story and song and fun. We usually get between 15 and 20 Dads (plus their toddlers and babies and the occasional grandpa). The remaining dates for 2014 are these: 26 April (yes, it's not a third Saturday - because of how Easter falls this year), 17 May, 21 June (special family party to include mummy and siblings and a bouncy castle), 19 July, 20 Sept, 18 Oct, 15 Nov and 20 Dec. It runs from 10 am till 11.30 am and there's a bacon butty as standard. Red sauce or brown? Cost - just £1 per family.
NEW! Richard Davis and a dozen or so men meet at a local pub on the first Tuesday of the month. We're at The Goose at Gamston again on Tues 3 April from 8 pm. Just turn up.
On 25 Nov some 47 men gathered at The Five Rivers on Gordon Road for a Curry Evening. NIGEL ADAMS from Hope Nottingham was the speaker.
In October 36 men attended a Full English breakfast at which Kevin Lindsey and Lyndon Sanders spoke about starting up their new business in the automotive industry. They brought along one of their products, a carbon-fibre car body weighing just 54 kg (8½ stone in old money).
Plans for 2014 will include a couple of breakfasts, a brewery trip, a curry night, and some exciting community projects - details to follow.
Prime Time at Church - 2 pm every other Thursday.
Fellowship on Foot
A group of walkers sets off from St Luke's at 9.30 am on the last Friday of the month. The walks are usually about five or six miles in Derbyshire and then end up in a tea room. Anyone with boots, waterproofs and a packed lunch will be most welcome. Further details from the Church Office.
