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, goldwork embroidery, a seed share and a Dutch baking workshop.
- Saturday 23rd March, 2-4pm – Dutch baking workshop, Russell Avenue, Dunchurch
Ilke teaches a Dutch baking workshop where you will learn to bake two types of cakes/cookies filled with Dutch almond paste: Gevulde Koek ("filled cookie") and Gevulde Speculaas ("filled spiced cake"). At the end you'll have six cookies to take away with you (if you haven't eaten them).
£20 – this includes all the ingredients, materials and equipment you'll need.
- Friday 29th March, 7pm – Wild West Murder Mystery for 10-24 players at DMC
Join the fun and play a part in the mystery – will you be the murderer, the victim, the detective, an innocent suspect…?
Suggested donation £10
- 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.

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!
