Following the success of St Thomasâ€™ first Cake Fest last October during which over 500 cakes were sold, munched and shared this tasty event is back!
Get your fill of cakes from 10am â€“ 12 noon on Saturday 14th April or buy cakes to take away after the Sunday morning service on 15th April.
Many members of the St Thomasâ€™ congregation are talented bakers whose creations alwaysÂ go down a storm and itâ€™s these wonderful people who will be contributing cakes for Cake Fest 2.
Everyone is welcome â€“ either pop in for a quick slice or spend the morning working your wayÂ through everything thatâ€™s on offer!
All money raised by Cake Fest will be put towards the St Thomasâ€™ Church and Centre appealÂ which will fund essential works to the church building and enable the congregation to open the old library building as a Church and Community Centre.
Whilst the appeal has made amazing progress, raising overÂ£42,000 so far, the church is still a little way off its target.
Talking about Cake Fest, the ReverendÂ Claire Turner said,
“We have been overwhelmed by the support our appeal has received and are extremely gratefulÂ to all who have generously contributed their time and money. We hope that both those who know of our work and those that donâ€™t will pop in to Cake Fest â€“ both to enjoy the cake and to find out how weâ€™re already making use of the funds generated.
“All this activity will help us to maintain the much-loved St Thomasâ€™ Church for future generations whilst also developing a new church andÂ community building. The St Thomasâ€™ Centre will not just house church activities but will provideÂ space for other community initiatives and be available for hire.â€
