DBC Building Fund
The church building
We meet in it every Sunday and throughout the week for services and many other activities, but unfortunately DBC's present church building is coming to the end of its useful life; it is also, praise God, getting too small! The time was ripe for the Building Project. In order to raise funds for the new building we will be organising many events over the next few years, and we'd love you to join us!
So far there have been two extremely enjoyable Murder Mystery Nights, a Beetle Drive, three Quiz Nights, a Popcorn & Candyfloss Party, an Art & Craft Fair, a successful 100-Days-Without-Chocolate challenge, a sponsored walk/run/ride/pram-push around Draycote Water, two Hardanger embroidery workshops, a Jukebox concert, a Remembrance event, two curry evenings, an Arabic food event, a Cream Tea, Shisha embroidery workshops, Christmas Craft Fairs, a Previously Loved Sale, freestyle embroidery workshops, Christmas embroidery workshops, a Chaplain's cruise with tea & cake, Virtual Reality games and goldwork embroidery.
- Friday 23rd November, 6.30pm – Cake competition at DMC
Be part of the Great DBC Bake Off, either by baking a cake or by tasting and judging them! Items can be entered into one of 3 categories:
1. Children up to age 13 (can enter anything)
2. Christmas (mince pies, yule logs, gingerbread etc.)
3. Savoury (includes breads and quiches)
Each category will then have a prize for:
a) Most Delicious
b) Most Decorative
Tea, coffee and baked items will be sold and all proceeds will go to our building fund. And remember – this is meant to be a bit of fun not a professional cake competition !!!
- Home-made vanilla, chocolate or orange fudge, £2 a bag (8 pieces)
Download the order form, send or give it to Martin & Ruth, and before you know it you've got a perfect gift (but we quite understand if you want to keep some for yourself, too).
From time to time limited edition or seasonal goodies may be available, such as hand-made toffee or Easter eggs.
- Hand-crocheted toys/mascots, loveys/blankies and bags made to order, prices £3-£16
Animals, mermaids, security blankets, even fruit – there seem to be no boundaries to what Linda can crochet. Great gifts for babies and toddlers to cuddle, or as decorative items for those who have outgrown the toddler stage (but you can still cuddle them when no-one is looking.) Patterns by One & Two Company.
More information on Linda's Crafts Facebook page or contact by email.
Alison bakes and decorates cakes to order. Please discuss your requirements with her so she can bake you the perfect cake!
- Photographic postcards from £1.50
Pete and Fleur take photographs wherever they go, of wildlife, buildings, scenery, anything that catches their eye; and the best get made into postcards that are perfect both for special occasions and to simply let someone know you are thinking of them!
