This week Hazel Grove Baptist Church are delighted to host two local schools.
On Tuesday Hazel Grove High School will be holding the Year 7 rewards evening. This is a chance for us to celebrate all that is good in the classroom, on the sports field, those who have good attendance and to congratulate pupils who have been achieving and working hard since joining from primary school.
On Thursday Hazel Grove Primary School will be joining us for their Easter Celebration. In previous years this has been held in the school but we are delighted that they are joining us for a morning or songs, bible readings and fun.
On Easter Sunday over 220 people will be gathering early for breakfast. It's great to come together as a church community and enjoy each others company over cereal, toast, bacon sandwiches, and a cadburys cream egg! There will also be fresh orange juice, tea and coffee served.
In the past three months we have introduced filter coffee after our Sunday morning service. It certainly has made an impact with lots of good comments about how much nicer it is compared to the instant coffee we served before.
There is always a welcome at HGBC and everyone is invited to stay for a cup of traditional tea or some of our new fresh filter coffee served up from these amazing filter machines. Of course all the drinks are free!
Passover Comes to HGBC
One of our Homegroups have been having some fun whilst learning and taking part in a Jewish Passover meal.
Red Nose Day at the Cafe
On Thursday 12th March we had a great day at the Cafe in aid of Comic Relief. Special red nose cakes, lots of laughter and the odd joke thrown in as well!
If you missed it don't worry because there is always something good going on at the Cafe every Thursday morning at HGBC.
Here's the amazing cafe team having fun at the Red Nose Day special.
