Huttons Ambo Meeting Point - May 2014

The next Meeting Point will take place on 31st May in the Village Hall, and for a change it may be a lunchtime event, with more substantial food, as well as cakes, tea and coffee.  So get your weekend off to a good start with lunch out in the village. There will also be the usual books, Fairtrade and Childrens activities.  The timing for this event is not yet confirmed, so keep an eye open for notices at Herbie’s and perhaps through your letterbox.

(and here of course!).

Taize Evening - May 2014

Taize Evening
Thursday 8 May at 7.30pm
There will be an informal Taizé Meeting on Thursday, 8th May at 7.30 p.m.
at Water Meadows, Station Cottages, Water Lane, Low Hutton, Huttons Ambo, the home of Michael and Lesley Sessions.  We shall sing in four voice harmony soprano, alto, tenor and bass to some of the chants, and then sing together for relaxation, for about three quarters of an hour. Bring a bottle as we usually stay for a chat afterwards.  The church choir of St Margaret’s will lead each voice so beginners just need to follow.

Beginners especially welcome.
