Dalton Community Church – Photos

Community Advent Calendar

Advent is creeping nearer and so it won’t be long before our Community Advent Calendar is once again being shown in the windows of David Atkinson’s Car Sales showrooms(by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Atkinson).  This year the advent calendar will be based on letters of the alphabet. Twenty four Community groups are currently making their pictures-the photo shows members of the church’s prayer group putting the finishing touches to E is for Emmanuel which will be displayed on December 5th.

Christmas Shoe Boxes

Preparing the Christmas shoe boxes before packing

Our Christmas Shoe Boxes are now ready for collection along with some hand knitted blankets which will also go to Romania.  Members of Thursday Club look over the 32 boxes which have been filled this year using donations of items and money from both Church and Thursday Club members.  Many thanks to all who helped with this venture in any way.

 

Flashbacks … to times with Jesus

Flashbacks … to times with Jesus was held recently at Dalton Community Church with just over one hundred year 3 and year 4 children from George Romney, Our Lady of the Rosary and Dalton St Mary’s schools attending. They took part in a variety of crafts and experiences all based on events which happened in Jesus’ life.  The pictures show children from Dalton St Mary’s school.  An ecumenical team of helpers made the whole event run smoothly.

Prize Bingo

A very enjoyable Prize Bingo evening raised more than £200 for our refurbishment fund.  Many thanks to Freda for organising it for us.  Photos show some of those who attended.

Sunday Serenade

Sunday Serenade was a great success.  Pictures show Margaret Harrison at the piano with her husband Keith (who contributed some singing to the event), and Margaret at the organ.  She played a wide variety of music from classical to ABBA!  The other pictures show some of those who attended who enjoyed both the music and the afternoon tea style refreshments.

90th Birthday Girls

We celebrated two ninetieth birthdays at church today – in our usual way – with cake!! Pictured is Angie who organised the celebrations along with our Birthday Girls, Cath and Marion.

Cake Celebrations

We like our cake for celebrations (!) and today after morning worship we were celebrating that the Borough planning committee had passed our plans for the refurbishment of our Market Street premises.  Now we can look forward to having 21st century facilities not only for Sunday mornings but as an amenity used by the local community the whole week through.

Dalton Town Band

 

There was a great atmosphere at our Coffee and Carols on December 23rd.  First members of the training band of Dalton Town Band entertained us until more Band members appeared.  People especially enjoyed shaking bells or shaking their key rings to provide a bit of percussion in the chorus of Jingle Bells.

2017 Nativity

 

 

Our Nativity Service with the Cubs and Beavers was delightful-many thanks to them for coming and telling the story of Jesus’s birth.

Furness Churches United Choir

 

Furness Churches United Choir who gave a well received performance of the Christmas musical ‘While Shepherds Watched’ (by RogerJones) at the church on December 14th.  Almost £200 for the refurbishment fund was raised on the night through donations.  Thanks to all who supported this event in any way.
