Christian Aid Week 2016

Once again this year our home church, St Julians Baptist in Newport, took part in Christian Aid week. I’ve been the Christian Aid Rep for quite a few years now and every year we run a series of events for people in the church and in the local community.

This year we ran some old favourites and tried a couple of new things too. As always we had a team quiz, accompanied by tea and cake (pretty much everything is accompanied by tea and cake). Other events included a plant sale, a sponsored walk across the old Severn Bridge and a Handbell recital at a local garden centre.

My favourite event this year was the Scalextric Rally, four fantastic practice circuits and a digital timed track with prizes for the best times.

Christian Aid Week actually lasts about six weeks for us usually by the time we get all our events in and this year we raised over £1200.

I’ve included a few action shots from the Scalextric. Looking forward to next year

Scalextric Challenge for Christian Aid Week

CA-RED-RGBEvery year at our church we host a series of events for Christian Aid Week. We’ve had quizzes, sponsored walks, games, plant sales, cake sales, and loads of other stuff too.

This year we’ve got what is potentially my favourite ever event for Christian Aid Week.

Our HUGE Scalextric Challenge.

On June 11th at the church we are hosting an afternoon of fun and competition with a MASSIVE Scalextric challenge.

We’re going to build a replica of Brands Hatch. There will be a separate practice circuit and the official track will be digitally timed with prizes for the overall winner.
