We had a picnic lunch in the Walled Garden in Bangor before heading off on our walk.
We walked through Stricklands Glen, and along the coast towards Pickie.
Back to the Walled Garden to enjoy a seat in the sun.
After a lovely day in Bangor we went back to the church for a barbecue.
A relaxing end to a lovely day out, sitting in the sun on the church patio.
This qualification is for anyone in the church who handles food.
We are hoping to do the training online in the Minor Hall, and the approximate cost will be £35. Anyone interested (whether you have completed it before or not), please contact Moyra as soon as possible and we will try to arrange a date and time to suit everyone.
Saturday 31 October
The ‘Light the Night’ outdoor concert and fireworks, in the halls and grounds of St Andrew’s, took place this year on Halloween night, Saturday 31st October. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this event happen ... the volunteers who put up the marquees, prepared food, acted as stewards; the band who played all evening; the face painters, balloon artists and comic characters; the fireworks expert; the police and ambulance services; and everyone who came and made the evening so much fun. While this is a free event, this year we gave people the opportunity to make a donation to the refugee crisis through the TEAR Fund charity, and are delighted to have raised over £560 for this worthy cause.
The calm before the storm... The ever popular bouncy castle... Barbecue cooks hard at work...
The band set the tone for a fun evening, the face painters were kept busy, and there were a few surprise guests.
Lots of people came in fancy dress - and not just the children! There were plenty of hot dogs, burgers and tea to be enjoyed before the fireworks lit up the darkness.
Many donated generously to the current refugee crisis through Tear Fund. Thank you all for a total of £560 to bring some relief to the refugees.

If you would like to start a prayer triplet, just think of two friends with whom you could imagine yourself praying, and ask them – or by asking us to try to arrange a triplet for you. For more information, pick up the leaflet in the vestibule, or speak to Linda McGarrell.
