Moving Mountains, the full Crake Valley Programme

Hot off the press, the full Programme for Moving Mountains is now available.

From a Q & A session at NJoy, meeting youth from the John Ruskin School to an Open the Book Launch at the Primary School on Friday.  Things get off to a zippy start.  Great time to ask all the questions you always wanted answered in a friendly setting.

There are dinners, crafts for kids, prayer time, and even an evening at the pub at Penny Bridge in addition to our Fund raiser for the Coniston X112 which includes a way to eat and walk your way to fitness on Saturday.

Sunday there will be visiting pioneers at all the churches to talk about the whole experience of Moving Mountains.  A great week-end to be in Coniston!



Moving Mountains

Moving Mountains is coming to Coniston, Saturday, 10 March 2018

A couple of items to get you excited.  First, we’re raising money for the Coniston X112 which is a lifeline for individuals in this small rural village.  The bus runs all the way to Barrow and is helping us to launch a walk from 13:15 as follows:

  • 10 a.m. Reading Room, Coniston, children’s crafts, family activities, a raffle, cake stall and great coffee!
  • A soup lunch will be arranged for those heading off on the X112 for Torver at 13:15
  • Arrive at Torver and more cake and coffee to fortify you for the walk back home!

Have fun and enjoy doing something for the community at the same time!

Fresh Expressions Course, Mission Shaped Ministry

Beginning Monday 9 May, 7 p.m. at the Vicarage, we will begin the Mission Shaped Ministry flexi course designed specifically for the ecumenical work taking place in Coniston and Torver.  This is a first for the trainers coming to us and it is not to be missed!

More information can be found at the following link:  Mission shaped flexi-course

Richard Passmore the Fresh Expressions Enabler will be leading. Currently the course is planned to run on every 2nd Monday of the month.  There is a cost which we haven’t got details of at the present but we will know when Richard Passmore has the information from Fresh Expressions nationally.  The idea for the evening would be to start with puddings, so hopefully you will have eaten your evening meal with your family and you bring your pudding to the course.

This opportunity is open to all churches in Coniston, Torver and the Valley.
