Fun and food for a fiver

Each school term a group of Mothers’ Union members organise an evening for local families, usually on a Friday night from 6-8pm.

Tickets are sold at £5 for the whole family, though each family member is given their own ticket, so there is some idea of the numbers coming.

Food is served buffet style and there are quiz sheets and activity sheets for all ages. After the food, party style games are played with all the family joining in – team games, beetle, musical chairs, etc. A Mothers’ Union resource table with copies of up to date literature is available in the hall for parents to browse.

One of the fathers said that he never knew church could be so much fun!
