04 June 2017 Pentecost Evening – The Eastleigh Deanery TKC response

As requested by the Bishops, we will be joining the Churches of the Eastleigh Borough – both Anglican and beyond – at a Pentecost Evening event in Eastleigh Town Centre at St Andrews Methodist Church for celebration of TKC week AND hear the latest plans for HOPE 2018 from Roy Crowne, the National Director of HOPE, another initiative we were encouraged to embrace at our Diocesan Conference in October 2016.

We are also planning to “beam in” live-feed at that gathering from our nearest “Beacon Event” at Winchester Cathedral too….!

4. Deanery Christmas Festival 2017 - Ageas Bowl 3rd Dec 2017

On Sunday 4th December more than 2,500 people from across the Eastleigh Borough came together to attend Hampshire Cricket in the Community’s annual Christmas Festival held at the Ageas Bowl. The event featured a host of fairground rides, markets stalls, community stands, a visit from the Mayor of Eastleigh, Messy Church, live music from Sound Worship, as well as school and community choirs, all coming together to spread festive joy!

It was a busy day for the Messy Church teams from Sholing, Marchwood, Bitterne, Fareham, St Denys, Hedge End and Bishopstoke who hosted “Messy Christmas” in the Robin Smith suite overlooking the cricket pitch. The team assisted children of all ageas in creating at least 220 pregnant Marys, over 100 Advent Prayer Boxes, 150 Advent Candles, 190 candle holders and well over 200 donkeys, as well as having many conversations about the real meaning of Christmas.

A team of angels from ARK Eastleigh were also working hard across the site. ARK, a local charity seeking to serve the vulnerable and excluded in our community through practical acts of kindness, befriending and advocacy, provided a team of angels to share some Christmas cheer by personally delivering individually wrapped Christmas blessings.

A special thanks goes to the young people from Fledge, a charity supporting homeless young people in Eastleigh, who hosted our stable selfie booth. Despite an appearance from Roary, Hampshire Cricket’s mascot, and Santa himself, the star of the show had to be Apple, a Shetland Pony who joined festival-goers in their stable selfies and more than held her own amongst the crowd of Messy Christmas donkeys!

The event, in its third year, raised more than £2,900 for charity which will support Hampshire Cricket in the Community's aims of promoting sporting and leisure opportunities across Hampshire as well as increase the Club’s engagement with the wider community.

The Ageas Bowl Christmas Festival is a fantastic opportunity for agencies from across the borough to work together for the common good of the people of Eastleigh. See you you there in December 2017!

Pioneer Minister
