We are looking forward to trying out new things in Bishop Auckland and Hamsterley.
The village post office in Hamsterley closed a while back and the residents now rely on a weekly visit from a mobile post office. As there is no village meeting point the church is running a drop in once a month when the post office visits. The 'Toast Office', will open from 10-12 to meet with local people.
On June 7, Churches Together in Hamsterley have a joint service to mark the anniversary of the covenant signed to work together. We then go into Hamsterley Forest for a Pentecost Picnic with an open air witness.
Good opportunities have been given in several schools in Bishop Auckland for assemblies and Bible Explorer lessons. Some members of the church will take to the streets for an open air sketch board presentation on June 3 as a first attempt at taking the church outside.
