Two of Spennymoor’s churches are teaming up for a weekend celebration giving local people the chance to try something new. St Paul’s church and its neighbour, Trinity Methodist church, are hosting a ‘Give it a Go’ day which organisers promise will have something for everyone of all ages. The free event on Saturday 29th June from 11am until 4pm, will feature a wide range of activities using the church buildings and their outside spaces. The activities will be spread across the two churches and the St Paul’s Centre and here’s just a taster of what people can expect across the day. Help create a giant outdoor art attack; there will be street style dancing for beginners; watch a flower demonstration and then have a go yourself; join a choir for the day; have a taster session on playing the organ or piano; try juggling or spinning plates in the circus skills session; there will be potting and planting for everyone in the gardening zone; learn how to be a better photographer and get the best out of an iPad; have a go at spinning wool; get creative with clay modelling, and help weave a section of a banner as a memento of the day. There will also be giant games and general crafts for everyone to enjoy. At 3pm everyone is invited to gather at St Paul’s church where people will be able to show off their new skills and see what others have been doing throughout the day. Inside St Paul’s church, visitors will be able to view an art display by Rosa Street primary school children who have been creating pictures with the title “I’m really good at…” The winning pictures from each year group will be announced during the showcase event. The Divine and Delicious café at the St Paul’s Centre will be selling light refreshments from 11am, and following the showcase event at 3pm, tea and cakes will be served at St Paul’s church. As part of the Give it a Go weekend, on Sunday 30th June at 10.30am there will be an open-air celebration service and picnic communion at St Paul’s church. People are asked to bring their own picnic chairs or a blanket. If it rains (but hopefully not!), the celebration will move inside the church. A full programme of activities will be available to pick up on the day, or log on to www.stpaulsspennymoor.co.uk to download a copy.
