Need something to do on Bank Holiday Monday?

On Monday 6th May the United Reformed Church, Mill Lane, Broxbourne, EN10 7BQ will be holding their May Market from 10.30 to 2.00. 

This annual event is a well-established and firm favourite with the local population, particularly for its warm welcome, its delicious refreshments and food and the quality of the plants on sale.

There is something for everyone: an extensive outdoor plant stall selling sturdy bedding plants, pretty perennials and decorative hanging baskets and, inside, an array of craft stalls, bric-a-brac treasures, pre-loved books and toys and some beautiful china and glass.  Plus homemade  jams, chutneys, cakes and pies. Our companionable cafe provides delicious refreshments and light lunches. 

….. and should you wish to hire a table top to sell for yourself, you might still be in time if you contact Mary Bite on 01992 467585 and pay her £12.

 

Most people in Broxbourne are fortunate enough never to have to experience homelessness, but for those who do it can be a very traumatic experience that is hard to escape from, damaging physical and emotional well-being.

From January 7th to March 3rd 2019, Churches Together across Broxbourne Borough hosted a Winter Night Shelter (WNS) pilot, with the intention of creating an ongoing WNS should the pilot prove successful and the demand sufficient. It ran with support from Housing Justice and with Broxbourne Council.

During the eight week duration of the pilot, guests were referred to the project by Broxbourne Council, and offered an evening meal, overnight accommodation and breakfast in a circuit of seven local churches, each of which was open on a different night of the week.

The project was staffed by volunteers from the local churches and wider community (there was no requirement to be a Christian to either attend or volunteer). It was overseen by a Core Steering Group, with each venue being organised by one or more Venue Coordinators. All volunteers have been trained.

The contact for our church is Natasha Appiah. Thank you Natasha for all your work at Elim Church!

Mothers and Toddlers Group.

A place where pre-school children and their carers can come and find friendship and fun in a safe environment .....

Carers keep an eye on their children as they race around the hall on bikes, or jump on the trampoline, or play with smaller toys. There are things to make and do and refreshments too! 

We meet in term-time on Wednesday afternoons, 1.30 to 3.00 and cost £1 per week per family.

 

No need to book a place, just turn up.
