Lovely ladies cuddle the babies, whilst you eat your soup.

Where can new mums go, to have lunch where it’s warm and safe and you get to eat fresh soup and homemade cakes, while someone holds your baby? Too big an ask? Not at Wilsden Trinity! Every Monday lunch time, young mums come together and turn the giant quilt into a wriggling mass of cute babies with mums and helpers looking on!

During last Summer, a group of volunteers got together with Linda Storton to allocate jobs: from a prayer group to soup-servers, baby-holders to cake-makers and in September “Soupermums” was born. Posters and flyers flooded the village and Health Visitors and church members encouraged new mums to come along. It started slowly and quietly and is now a thriving, chatty, happy NOISY group!

Here's what Zack who comes with his mummy has to say:

"We’ve been coming since I was tiny and I’m ALMOST walking now! We like to come and meet new friends and I love all the attention I get from the helpers. I especially like the song we sing (I’m a bit of a star with the actions!) Mummy likes to eat her lunch in peace and gets to chat to all the other mummies and every week, she gets a prayer or poem to put in a book the Friends and Heroes children made for us. Me and Mummy are getting baptised there soon, not sure if that involves soup too but my new church friends at Wilsden Trinity are very excited about it!"

Anyway don’t take my word for it - here’s what Abi, one of the other mums, has to say about SOUPERMUMS!.......................

“Soupermums is such a giggle, not only do you get to eat yummy soup & cake in peace(for a change) while the babies play under the watchful eye of trusted helpers, you get to meet other mums from the local community & share advice & stories about your own parenting journey. Monday is definitely the new Friday with Soupermums becoming the highlight of my week :)”

Pancakes and Poems at Thornton

Pancakes and Poems, what a great evening we had on 13th February (Shrove Tuesday), in aid of 2nd Mile Project.

People were invited to come along for tea/supper and enjoy a variety of pancakes both savoury and sweet.

The selection was most tempting with fillings such as chilli. chicken and avocado, mushroom or cheese and onion. The sweet fillings were too many to mention, but my favourite was fresh fruits with ice cream – yum, yum.

Throughout the evening, many people had brought poems to read to everyone. The genre of this was amazing with funny, romantic, knowledgeable and even a little bit naughty.

It was good to be together with laughter and smiles all round. A special thank you to everyone who came and all who helped.

Virtual Worship - 14 June 2020

Call to worship (based on Psalm 100)Shout with joy to the Lord
Worship the Lord with gladness.
Know that the Lord is God
It is God who made us, and we are God’sEnter God’s gates with thanksgiving
Come into God’s courts with praise Give thanks to God and praise God’s holy name.
The Lord is good God’s love endures for ever. Amen.
PrayerLord God, you made us, and we are yours, we are your people, the sheep of your pasture. As we focus on you this morning, and acknowledge that your presence makes the place in which we do this (wherever it is) a holy space, touch our hearts afresh with your love, that our lips may praise you and our lives serve you in all things. Amen.

You might like to sing, or reflect on the words of, Hymn StF 363, which begins, “My Jesus, my Saviour, Lord there is none like you. All of my days I want to praise the wonders of your mighty love”.

Read Romans 5:1-8First silently to yourself, then, if you can, out loud, from the Message Bible. I love the way…
