Trick or Treat

Love it or hate it, Parwich does “Trick or Treat” well, it is good-natured and friendly. Tonight there was a real buzz in the air, you could hear children’s voices full of excitement and their footsteps echoing up the path. Lots of effort had been put into the costumes and the enthusiasm of the children was matched by their readiness to say thank you.




Lots more photos – to enlarge just click on the photo. (more…)

Boots is home.

Marion & John F-S are extremely relieved that “Boots” has returned. Whilst they were away at the weekend  Boots, their cat went missing.

Janet B had been hunting high and low and so had lots of other kind people, so the F-S’s would like to let them know that all is well, and to say a big thank you for their help and concern.

Let There Be Light, a children’s event celebrating God’s creation, organised by Revd Andy Larkin, took place today in the Memorial Hall.  Thirty eight children attended and enjoyed activities including a shadow theatre, an ultra-violet light filled maze, decorating gingerbread people, producing a full size decorated image of themselves and a huge joint piece of art celebrating the creation story from the Bible.

The parents enjoyed the excellent cafe provided by Catering 4 Parwich. The only problem was how to get the huge painting into the church, when it was finished! As the children left, they were each given a light stick. To see all the photo’s check out the Peak Five facebook page. A video will be posted soon.

“Thank you all who worked so hard with the planning, organisation and delivery. Especially the parents who unexpectedly found themselves being helpers to cope with the number of children (you know who you are!). Thanks also to all of you who came and supported the event and helped to make it such a great morning. Revd Andy Larkin.”
