25th September 2013

Hello Friends,

We meet next Sunday afternoon, 29th September, from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm in the ‘Lounge’ @ Emmanuel Church Centre, 43 Forest Road. Your hosts will be Aaron, Naomi, Helen and Jonathan It's rather late, but we are going to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival this Sunday.

Sunday 29th ~ 'Bring-&-Share' Meal ~ Everyone brings some food, puts it on the table, and shares it with everyone else. Some of you are able to prepare Chinese, Indian, Asian or European foods - some of us will bring something from the supermarket and heat it up when we arrive! Can anyone make Moon-Cakes? Try to be on time, so all the food is available soon after 2.30 pm.

Many students from overseas are arriving this week, and OPEN-HOUSE International Friendship Café welcomes overseas visitors to Loughborough (students, academics, employees, residents - married or single, children and adults) - those for whom the U.K. is a ‘foreign’ land - so do invite them to join us on Sunday.

May you all experience God’s wonderful blessing,

'Bring-and-Share' meals are very popular in the UK. We like inviting friends to a party or meal – and we all like going to meals and parties - but that can be expensive. So, we have 'Bring-and-Share' parties/meals where the host/hostess provides the venue and basics - and the guests provide everything else.

Whenever you are invited to a 'Bring-&-Share' party or meal, the idea is that every guest brings something to eat and drink - and it all goes on the table to be shared with everybody else. So, if everybody brings something different, then we all enjoy an interesting meal together. It usually works out well, so take whatever you would like to eat/drink. Bon appetite!
