25th February 2015

Hello Friends,

It was good to see so many of you last Sunday afternoon - wasn't the food delicious!
Tomorrow, Thursday 26th, there is a Free Lunchtime Concert at Emmanuel Church (refreshments at 12 noon, concert begins at 12.45 pm) - highly recommended!
This Saturday, 28th, we are visiting Nottingham Castle for a Day Out - Are you coming?    MEET outside Emmanuel Church at 8.50 am (don't be late!) and bring a Camera, Umbrella, and some food and drink (or you can visit the Castle Cafe).   Total cost including bus-fare and entry will be £16 (or a little less if you are a child/OAP or have a UK Students Card).   A really interesting 'fun' day for everybody - you might meet Robin Hood - and you can visit the City's shops afterwards.

We'll meet next Sunday afternoon (1st March) from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm in the ‘Lounge’ @ Emmanuel Church Centre, 43 Forest Road; your 'hosts' will be Guy, David, and Wendy ~ plus other volunteers! 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!

Do invite your overseas friends to join us on Sunday afternoons ~ we have travel books, games of skill, toys for the children, refreshments ~ and opportunities for making new friends, learn about different places, and practice your English.

As well as being the First Day of Meteorological Spring, this Sunday is also 'St David's Day' so I'm sure Prof. David will tell you more about that at OPEN-HOUSE! 
May you all experience God’s wonderful blessing,
