After almost 18 months of time out due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we are slowly starting to open up our social calendar and our Parish Groups are beginning to start up again. Throughout the year we offer a wide range of regular and one-off events so there is something to suit everyone, whether you prefer a social event, a musical evening, a family day, a parish bus trip, a lively discussion group or some quiet time to think and reflect. Regardless of which you may attend you will be very welcome at any of our events across all three churches.
If there is an event you would like to see – or even better think you can make happen – then please let us know!
Family Film Night
St Columba’s Christmas Market
As part of the fundraising and development plan at St Columba’s we will be hosting our first event next month, an Outdoor Christmas Market will be held on Saturday November 20th after the 5pm Mass – please see the additional items on the newsletter for further information on how you can support the event and offer any help in the organisation.
After the coffee morning on Thursday 28th October the Columba’s Crafters are holding an open session and inviting you to come along to a session to create and make items to be sold at the market and to share ideas, knitting patterns, hand made cards, Christmas Wreaths etc.
Parish Panto Trip
For the young and the young at heart in our parish we will be visiting the Northern Stage Theatre for their Christmas Pantomime this year on Sunday 12th December – The Sorcerer’s Apprentice so grab your magical marching mop and join us in this enchanting new production, a truly magical treat for the whole family that’s not to be missed this Christmas!

Christmas Carol Concert
I know it is a long way ahead but I am delighted we can resume our annual Christmas Carol Concert with the Ravenswood Singers at St Aidan’s on 18th December. I know how much we have enjoyed their time with us in previous years – won’t it be lovely to have some normal Christmas Celebrations! Tickets are now on sale at £7 per person (incl a glass of wine) – please see Tracey for tickets or email firstname.lastname@example.org
