Royal Tea Party

Each year, we arrange a date for our annual fundraiser and in 2018, it coincided with the Royal Wedding.  On Saturday 19th May, with the help of Absolutely Vintage China Hire, we transformed Oadby Baptist Church into a gorgeous tea room.

It was brilliant to welcome 80 people over the day, both young and old, and be able to provide them with a friendly, professional and mouth-watering experience. Our particular thanks goes to the enormously generous Rodda’s of Cornwall, who provided us with 100 pots of clotted cream and Tiptree Jam.

What set out as a fundraiser, we soon realised had turned out to be a lovely community event which we had the pleasure of arranging. These are some of the lovely comments we received on the day;

“Enjoyable for all”, “As good as a 5-star hotel” and “Great community feel.”

Finally, we need to thank all those who supported us, in prayer, by coming along, by volunteering to serve or bake, and by providing resources.

Our prayer for the event, was that people would receive the Lord’s blessing. As a team, we definitely felt this and we were so thankful to raise £600 for Reality Youth Project at the same time.  Thank you to all those wonderful people for their encouragement and donations.

Oadby Baptist Church 16th -17th March 2018

20 young people and 10 youth workers, once more came together for a 24 hour residential of fun, friendship and food.

Over the 24 hours, we had a load of fun playing games including Human Hungry Hippos, watching Paddington, enjoying the cafe, a walk, a Bible Scavenger Hunt and playing table tennis, pool & on games consoles,.

Once more, Oadby Baptist Church were great hosts and a special thanks goes to those from the church which provided the lovely lunch.

The afternoon outing was to the Midlands Roller Arena. A time where the youth workers could get alongside the young people whilst having lots of fun.

Once more, it was great to have several young people who had no church background but who were friends of those already attending. It gave us a chance to lavish God’s love on them and welcome them, exactly where they are. One girl commented that the WKND made such an impact on her that she wanted a copy of the picture above to remember her time at the WKND.

Thank you, Bez Gradden, Events Manager

The WKND aims to be a fun and safe space, to build on the relationships already made with the young people within various groups by the Reality Youth Workers.
