Thank you to our lovely friends at welovebearwood for letting us know all about Bearwood Chapel’s extravaganza this weekend. There’s something for everyone – it’s basically a big party organised by Spanish speaking congregation members of Nueva Vida. You can look forward to Bearwood’s Got Talent on Friday; food, games and music on Saturday and even cooking demonstrations at other times. We Love Bearwood tell us what you can look forward to this weekend:
This coming weekend Bearwood Chapel are holding an event with a real difference. They’re holding a 3 day Latin Fiesta! Arriba! Arriba!
Intrigued? We were so we caught up with Pastor Dave to find out more….
“Saturday 1st August will be extremely special. Many people will remember the Jubilee Party that we held in 2012. Well we’d like to recreate that community atmosphere but with a twist. This will be a “Latin Fiesta” organised by our Spanish speaking congregation Nueva Vida. It will run from 2:30pm-7:00pm and will include food, Latin American games, music from the Raglan Road Church band and Mexican and Ecuadorian folkdance. We’re excited to be joined by two Latin American Folklore troops who are coming up from London, Mestizo Folklore Group and Renacer.
We will also be opening a Festival Café throughout the week (Thursday 30th & Friday 31st July 7pm -9pm, Sunday 2nd July 6:00pm-8:00pm). This will be in the Chapel building and will include music, drama, art, South American cooking demonstrations, storytelling etc. Entry and food and drink all free.
The Festival Café on Friday 31st July is being billed as a Bearwood’s Got Talent event. The evening will be open mike with opportunity for people to come along and showcase their talent. If anyone is interested in taking part, please get in touch via the contact form on our website or by twitter or face book.By the way, we’ve chosen the title “The Difference” because some of the story-telling will include real life stories as some of our church members tell their own stories about “The Difference that Jesus has made in their lives””
