Life's not always easy - is it?"

Fish and Chip Supper and Talk

Gordon Kuhrt


Gordon was born with severe clubbed feet, then as a very small child contracted polio. Calipers and surgery continued till his early twenties - and the story goes on (with later consequences). He will share some of the intriguing story in an illustrated talk - and how for him it can still tie in with the all-loving God. (One of his several books tell more - and for Children: Life's not always easy).



Friday 24th November 2017
The Barns Centre, Thame OX9 3AJ

Fish and Chip Supper and talk starting at 7.45pm

To book your place:

Men's Breakfast


"Hoping, against the odds!"

Mike Reading

Mike Reading was an educationalist for over twenty-five years, becoming one of the country’s youngest headteachers when he led a boy’s grammar school in Lincolnshire, before relocating to head up one of the most challenging schools in the country. In 2016, whilst on holiday in Gran Canaria, he was taken seriously ill and had little chance of survival. Despite being told that he was dying, he made a remarkable recovery against the odds. He is married to Ronnie and they have a 16 year old son. Mike took up the position of Curate at St Mary’s and Barley Hill churches in July 2017.

Rock Solid - Food Waste Feast

Rock Solid held a Food Wast Feast on 3rd September, to raise money for Tearfund.  

Food production contributes to Climate Change, which causes droughts in Africa, which in turn causes problems for families trying to cultivate their small patch of land.  Globally 1/3 of food is wasted, so by cooking up a fabulous feast from our food waste, we have, in a small way, helped African farmers.  In addition we collected  £75 which will be given to Tearfund. Through the local church network in Africa, this will allow 7 families to receive agricultural training to help them grow more food and store it successfully.  Many thanks to Beryl and Keith for hosting and helping us turn an interesting array of ingredients into a scrumptious feast.  Thanks also to those who donated food, but most of all, thanks to the Rock Solid team, who amazed me with their ingenuity and enthusiasm.  I was very proud of them.


 
 The raw materials we had to work with....


 Some yummy chocolate truffles taking shape.


 The occasional disaster.


 Mini toast pizzas...



 A scrumptious feast, vegetable soup, stir fry, pizzas, courgette bake, salads....



Sweet toothed Oliver was very proud of his three puddings, carrot cake, banana cake and toffee apple even if the cakes sagged a little due to having to share the oven with lots of other people!




Libby's healthy salads balanced out Oliver's puddings.



Enjoying their spoils.

Cardboard Campout - 8th August 2017

On Tuesday 8th August, our Rock Solid Group camped out under cardboard to try and experience a little of what it might be like to be homeless.


It poured with rain most of the night, so we did make use of a tarpaulin, gazebo, and emergency tent.



For dinner, they had two dustbins to rifle through, which they loved, some saying that they had never eaten so well!  Then we watched "A streetcat named Bob" before enjoying some hot soup from a paper cup and some marshmallows toasted over a fire pit.
