Missionaries Visit to Newbury @ Hamptead Norrys Village Hall

Missionaries Visit to Newbury @ Hamptead Norrys Village Hall | Hampstead Norreys | England | United Kingdom

Brian and Margaret Burton were working as Missionaries in Phuket, Thailand, when the tsunami struck in 2004. Working in the aftermath amid total devastation Brian and Margaret toiled relentlessly reuniting families and helping people to rebuild their lives. Since then they have pioneered several projects in the area, aimed at giving the poor the opportunity to rise above the effects of systemic poverty; these have included building villages, schools and a children’s home as well as founding a church which has influenced government, business and education in several provinces of the kingdom. Brian was honoured by the King of Thailand in 2006 for his continuing work.

Brian and Margaret will be visiting Newbury in June and have a full agenda of talks, meetings and interviews at a number of venues including:

  • Tuesday June 19th at St Nicolas Church where, beginning at 7.00, they will be talking on “God in the Marketplace”;
  • Leaders’ Seminars on Wednesday and Friday of that week at St Mary’s Church, Shaw, entitled “Transforming My Community”;
  • A public talk at The Downland Filling Station in Hampstead Norreys Village Hall on June 21st at 7.30, where they will be detailing some of their work and experiences verging on the miraculous!

Free tickets and further information on these events may be obtained online from Eventbrite, “Transforming My Community”.

Woolton Hill Village Market @ Woolton Hill Church Hall
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Woolton Hill Village Market @ Woolton Hill Church Hall | Woolton Hill | England | United Kingdom

Our Market has been running for over seven years, and offers fantastic produce, arts and crafts, and an opportunity for friends and neighbours to meet over a cup of tea! We boast a great selection of things to eat, try and buy. The choice of food, dependent on the line up for each market, includes high-welfare pork, beef, lamb, venison and charcuterie; fresh Devon fish; organic bread and cakes; tasty cheese; home-made ready meals and deli goods; hand-made chocolate and pure coffee.

We also run our community stalls, selling fresh fruit and vegetables, local eggs, English cut flowers and cooked refreshments – bacon, chipolata or pulled pork rolls – with any profits contributing to the running of the Market, or going towards our ‘Charity of the year’ donation.

Visitors can also browse accessories; well-being products; toys; cards; plants and crafts; demos and meet local charities or community groups. Our children’s activity is always busy. While the youngsters are amused with arts and crafts, the parents can catch up with friends! The popular tea room, selling home-made cakes and proper tea and coffee, and the raffle, are always busy and offer opportunities to raise money for good causes.

Come along to the Village Hall on the last Saturday of most months (there are no markets in August and December) between 10am and 1pm, for a friendly welcome and some lovely things to tempt you and the family!
