‘The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day He created Spring’ – Bern Williams
I hope this letter finds you safe and warm. I wonder if it is just me – weather forecasts never used to be so exciting . . . ‘the Beast from the East’ meeting with ‘storm Emma’! Red and Amber weather warnings resulting in nine foot drifts of snow. Well thank goodness it is all over. . .or is it? Let us look forward to spring and Easter blessings.
During all the weather excitement Ange was invited to provide a practical presentation – ‘Prayer Spaces in Schools’ – at the Church in Wales School, Gilwern. Unfortunately, this had to be deferred to 14 March 2018.
Sunday Diners continues – 11 March 2018 Ange prepared ‘Dragons’ and if I add Cumberland then you will know that sausages was on the menu! The next meal will take place on 08 April 2018 which will be an Easter Special.
How many of you managed to see ‘Romero – Heartbeat of El Salvador’ at the Priory Centre, Abergavenny presented by Rise Theatre? I have heard that it was an excellent performance with a very powerful message.
When you are in the town centre look out for the Easter Window in Red Square – Ange will be busy creating on 25 March 2018, the theme I am sure will be both powerful and reflective. Don’t forget British Summer time begins that weekend, clocks go forward!
Easter Holidays at 7Corners is 29 March – 16 April 2018 which will include some chocolaty theme/activities. These will be led by Emma.
During Holy Week, 7Corners Centre will be closed 29 March – 01 April 2018. There will be a Good Friday Walk of Witness (7Corners Centre will be open for Hot Cross Buns after the Service) and an evening reflection will take place at the Salvation Army.

Our HOTSPOT team are still out every week around Abergavenny, visiting Bailey Park, Abergavenny Castle and the ‘skate park’ on Hereford Road to meet the young people out in the community – this is an important part of outreach, having a presence in the Community. We need volunteers! We’d love to hear from you if you feel you can help out in any way with the HOTSPOT outreach team. Pop in and see Ange in the office or telephone 01873 855414.
As Easter is approaching – may I remind you next time you buy something online don’t forget to visit the Easyfundraising website first before you make your purchase. At no extra cost to you, 7Corners will receive a donation from Easyfundraising.
The Centre will be closed from Tuesday 20 March for Ange to have a break before Easter.
It will re-open on Tuesday 27 March.
The office will be open as usual during that time.
