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, three Shisha embroidery workshops, Christmas Craft Fairs, a Previously Loved Sale, freestyle embroidery workshops and Christmas embroidery workshops.
- Saturday 18th March, 4.30-6pm – Tea and Cake on the Chaplain's Cruise at DBC
Michael & Barbara host an interactive time with tea and cake to hear about their latest Chaplaincy on a Saga Cruise. Please sign up on the list by the photocopier which will be available from Sunday 26th February, or by email.
£4 per person
- Saturday 20th May & 24th June (and possibly 15th July), 2-4pm – Embellished embroidery workshop at DBC
In this workshop we will use several types of thread to work a variety of stitches, adding texture and sparkle by means of beads and gems to create a wreath of greenery enclosing colourful flowers and a 3D butterfly. The finished project will be made into a card.
Scissors and 4" hoops will be available to use during the workshop, but do feel free to bring your own if you wish.
£10 including all materials; coffee & tea available.
- Home-made vanilla and chocolate 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 and loveys/blankies made to order, prices £7.50-£12
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.
- Personalised key-rings from £1.50
These make a delightful and personal gift. Each one is transparent and can feature any name or message you wish, but do bear in mind that the more characters (letters & spaces) you want, the smaller they will be.
There is a full-colour overview of available designs, and it may also be possible by special request to add your own picture for a small extra charge (provided, of course, that the picture doesn't infringe copyright law).
From previous experience, these key-rings will sell very easily to family and friends so, if you wish to, you can make a good contribution to the DBC Building Fund by offering them for sale.
