Easter service and parade at Hackleton

Reverend Beverley with some of the children from year 6 Hackleton Primary School and their amazing Easter bonnets and accessories

Reverend Beverley has been working hard building links with the schools in the benefice. She has been taking special lessons in the school and taking part in assemblies, including the Easter service held in the school, which focussed on a drama performed by the children in year 5.

This was followed by the Easter bonnet parade where all the children parade in a bonnet and/or accessories they have made at home. Reverend Beverley shared the difficult job of picking the winners from each class alongside Mrs Burns, the Head Teacher and senior members (Year 6) of the school council, Adam Rimmer and Ellie Pilling.

Toilet Twinning Lent Campaign

 Flushed with success!

The Living Brook Benefice has raised a total to date of £311.30 for our Lent toilet twinning campaign, which means we have enough to buy FIVE new toilets which will be built in Burundi. Thanks to everyone who has saved their pennies during Lent. Some parishioners have followed Revd Beverley's lead in twinning the toilet in The Vicarage and have twinned their toilets at home too. 
We also know that our campaign has influenced other groups too, Hackleton cubs are saving their pennies during April and hope to be able to twin another toilet. In addition all the toilets in Middlesex University Library are now also being twinned, due to awareness of our campaign.

Just because our Lent campaign is over, this doesn't mean you have to stop collecting your pennies for this fantastic project. To announce the end of our Lent campaign, however, a prize of a T-shirt and an Easter egg were awarded to Toby who had managed to collect the most pennies.

Easter news

Easter news

Easter in the Living Brook Benefice has brought all our churches together at this most special time with services that have brought to life the Easter story. Services that have reflected the bittersweet moments of Jesus' last few days on Earth and the impact it had on those closest to Him then and for us here today.
The various services and activities throughout the Benefice, has been a time of fellowship and a chance to worship together with all the members of the benefice.

Below are a couple of photos taken on the Good Friday walk and breakfast. Our thanks to all those at Quinton who worked so hard to put on such a fabulous breakfast.
