Josephine Butler Memorial Day

Josephine Butler Memorial Day was recently held in the Church of England Lectionary.  Following a Eucharist Service in the Lady Chapel at Liverpool Cathedral, an awards luncheon was held in the Gilbert Giles Scott Suite. 

The Bread Church was one of several community organisations to be recognised by the Josephine Butler Memorial Trust for its work in Liverpool.  

"Josephine Butler has been described by contemporaries and biographers as beautiful and charismatic.  (She) is remembered for her compassion for prostitutes and her tireless championing of poor women and children."  

Claire Jones, HerStoria, 2012

Oliver, our administrator's husband, enjoyed being taught how to bake bread for the first time by one of our experienced facilitators, Leighton.

Royal Wedding fever!

It was Royal Wedding Fever at Bread Church on 17th May as we looked forward to Harry & Meghan's big day in Windsor. A bread cake was baked complete with bride & groom on the top and candles. 


Two of our community agreed to be Harry & Meghan for the day and walked down the aisle, blew out the candles, cut the bread-cake and then joined the guests for our usual amazing soup and bread lunch. But this time we had cakes and sweets to finish off the lunch,  as well as bunting festooned around the church.  We hope and pray that the real bride and groom had as much fun on Saturday as we did on Thursday. 

 

In reflections we talked about the story of the Wedding Feast at Cana and how the guests had reacted to a lack of wine that needed Jesus' help. Hopefully no such difficulties were had at Windsor on Saturday.

 

Once again the outrageous hospitality that we share within our amazing community here at Somewhere Else shows the love of God in this place

A special visitor from Prague!

Monika Resleróva (Vincentian Volunteer during 2016-17) spent the day with us visiting from Prague, Czech Republic.   The Tuesday group enjoyed re-connecting with her during breadmaking, worship, reflections and lunch.  Monika now teaches primary school children in Prague.

 

Carolyn (Thursday session facilitator) was able to stop by to join us for lunch during Monika’s visit. 

 

Monika also met Joseph Rikardsen, our current Vincentian Volunteer (2017-18) 

Facilitator Training Has Started!

Another first for Milly!

Our shared lunch is a very important part of the day at Breadchurch. Making the soup is a shared task so different members of the community can enjoy being involved.  We always make vegetarian soup using a variety fo recipes and ingredients.

 

Earlier in February, for the first time Milly Gill agreed to coordinate putting together soup for lunch, and she did a stellar job to rave reviews! The photo was taken by Rev. Peter Hughes, guest chaplain at breadmaking and worship on that day.

 

Thank you Milly for all your hard work!

 

 

The Middle Room - what a transformation!

For years "The Middle Room" between the Breadmaking Room and Cloud Room has been used to store art and craft materials, broken furniture and any unwanted items.  It's still a drying room for our aprons and tea towels, but Rev Sally Binymin and our Administrator, Lorraine Howarth transformed the main part of the room into this beautiful centrepiece.  It's become a more peaceful and reflective space,  Thank you for your hard work, it looks so much better and the room feels better too.
