As you can see from the photo, we had a very lively evening with TaSTe this month. It was great to have them all gathered together again, especially to see Becka, who had missed the last couple of meetings.
This month ‘Auntie Julie’ held some special interviews with the children to discover what they thought about the work that she and the other members of the Zephaniah Trust have been doing in their schools etc. Their responses which were unscripted were very positive and encouraging.
After all the hard work came that pizza moment, which this time was enhanced by the addition of Baguley flapjack. A great time was had by all.
The rest of the photos can be found on our Facebook page.

Everyone welcome.

The young people form TaSTe enjoyed an afternoon of Ten Pin Bowling at Shipley Lanes yesterday. Matthew, Jake and Kayleigh all made pretty good scores as did Helen, but the runaway winner on the day was Julie with a score of 135 (and almost no help from the bumper bars!) Colin even managed to knock over a few pins in the second game.
The most poignant moment of the day was when Helen finally got a strike only for the lights to be turned in the lane just before the ball hit. Sometimes life is like that!
There are some more photos on our Facebook page.
As a new year treat we shall be meeting for TaSTe this Tuesday at Shipley Lanes to go bowling. The lane is booked from 4.00-5.00pm so the best thing would be for everyone to meet up at the Bowling Alley which is just off Market Street in Shipley. Everyone Welcome
Tuesday 11th January 4.00-5.00pm Shipley Lanes.
TaSTe gathered together again yesterday. As well as the usual Wii games, Julie told us the story of Papa Panov and his encounter with Jesus on Christmas Day. As you can see, this was followed by card making and the consumption of pizza. It was also a special occasion as we celebrated Kayleigh’s birthday with chocolate cake.
There are more photographs on our Facebook page.
The TaSTe gang will be meeting up again this week for their last gathering of 2010.
TaSTe – Tuesday 14th December – 3.30 – 5.30pm @ 6 Glenhurst Rd.
There will be all the usual activities and you never you there might even be pizza with holly on it!
All GraceSpace children welcome.
There were fireworks at TaSTe yesterday – literally. We rounded off our afternoon with a small display of whooshes and bangs and the youngsters all singing a chorus of ‘Run Colin Run’ every time a blue touch paper was ignited.
This was not the whole story. Kayleigh amazed us with her prowess at Wii golf, the was the usual ‘plague of locust’ impressions when the pizza was served and we thought about the story of the ‘Unforgiving Servant’. If we are to expect forgiveness from God then we must be prepared to forgive those who wrong us – just as it says in the Lord’s Prayer.
Thanks to Helen, Hilary and John for their support. More TaSTy things next month.
