We are a congregation hosting a street party celebration to honour our Queen’s magnificent 70 years reign. We will send out invitations to the neighbouring community, including all age organisations to join us. We had great success with our Diamond Jubilee Street Party (which was broadcast on BBC TV) and it is our wish to do the same 10 years on. The area surrounding our church property is very diverse. While we have families able to meet financial commitments and living comfortable and happy lives, there are also families living on the breadline and relying on foodbanks, one parent families, families experiencing drug and alcohol dependence etc., and it is our wish to have everyone coming together to enjoy neighbourly hospitality and a hand of friendship. What better way to celebrate our Queen’s life on the throne. We will have baking / art / table decorating competitions, a D.J., a buffet provided by members of the church, homebaking, children’s activities and community singing of songs from the past 70 years (words pre-printed) plus much more!! We look forward with great anticipation to this event and know that it will be A M A Z I N G. In the evening we will be lighting a beacon in the grounds of the church and serving hot drinks and hot peas etc.
