Souper Bowl was back with a bang and was a massive success.  We had 9 entries of delicious soups.  While each year we get a variety of new soups we also experience another first this year, we had a tie for the winning soup or soups in this case.  Even though Father Lance wanted a fight for first place, the chefs of all the soups decided that both the names should go on the trophy as each were deserving of the prize of having their names immortalized on the trophy.  So a big congratulations to Deacon Fred and Jud with their Squash Almighty Soup and Reverend Mark with his Minestrone Soup on winning this years Souper Bowl.


 The 2023 Bazaar was a huge success.  A big thank you to Gillian Matthewman for being this years convener.  As the saying goes many hands make light loads and that is truly how this event happens each year.  So thank to everybody who helped out and attended this year's bazaar.  We hope to have it again next year and see you all there.

Christmas Bazaar 2022

The Christmas Bazaar was a huge success and you will have to take my word for it as I'm still remembering I need to take pictures.  I have just a couple from the day before with setup happening.  Thank you though to everybody who turned out both to help out and to support the church at the event.
