Around 60 people enjoyed fun, food and fellowship at Kingsthorpe Church of Christ on Saturday 24th October   

“This we have adopted the vision statement ‘Reach Up, Reach In, Reach Out’ and as a church we saw Family Week, among other things, as a wonderful opportunity to reach out to the families of our region,” said church member Sharon Tonscheck.

A Free Family Fun Day incorporating the theme Come to the Table Together was held in the church grounds from 10am -2pm.  Many of our Church family contributed to the preparation, the activities, music and meal of the event.

Around various tables, take-home craft creations were organized. These activities included making a ‘Handy Family Tree’ with family members’ hand cut-outs as the leaves; Bubble fun; ‘Our Family Rocks’ rock painting and making paper planes.

“Games and novelty events were planned for the morning, though the table activities along with the ever popular jumping castle and face painting seemed to take preference throughout the day,” said Sharon. 

For lunch everyone came together around outdoor tables for a sit down meal while enjoying the guitar music of Ben Lawson.

“Three choices of main course then sweets were lovingly prepared and served by members of our congregation,” she said.  

“Family Fun needn’t be costly. Feedback indicated quality not quantity proved true as those who came enjoyed a great day’s activities, a delicious meal and conversation around the table together.”
