Good Friday Litter Pick

Today, Good Friday, is the day when we remember that Jesus was taken out to a rubbish tip outside Jerusalem and killed. So today, we picked up litter! Members of All Hallows, Wrangthorn Church, Hyde Park Methodist Church, Leeds Green Party, Leeds City Council and other local community groups walked from Wrangthorn Church to All Hallows via Hyde Park Methodists and Left Bank picking up litter, drinking tea and eating hot cross buns. At the end of the walk we shared “wasted” food provided by The Real Junk Food Project Cafe at All Hallows.

And what do we think of it so far?

To boldly go…

Whilst a number of the All Hallows’ community were off practising their martial arts at the Greenbelt Festival a small remnant set out on an adventure to explore the heights of Meanwood Ridge, the depths of the Bedford Fields forest garden, the wide open expanse of Meanwood Park and the delights of the food served at the cafe in Meanwood Park. As you can see from the photo, our intrepid explorers thrived on their adventure!


Church Walk – 20th June 2015

This Saturday we had a circular walk starting at the fantastic Buffer’s Cafe in Storiths.

I think the Buffer’s Cafe was used as a base because of the fantastic train set and because at least two of our youngsters are train buffs!

Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk

Following on from the success of last year, the AH Yorkshire Three Peaks walk will be on 13th September. All are welcome to do as much or as little as you feel able, from a short walk along one of the rivers to tackling all three!

All Hallows’ camping trip to Aptrick (Appletreewick)

All Hallows’ very first camping trip (in living memory!) was a lot of fun. Children encouraged grown ups not only into the river but one of them (any guesses who?) coaxed adults into throwing themselves off a very high rope swing! We also enjoyed river walks, ‘mountain’ walks, walks to the loo, not many walks to the shower. You get the picture.

A communal BBQ and giant marshmallow toasting on sat night were followed by touching songs around the camp fire. We had time to hear some very beautiful performances before the rain ended the party. Those of us who are musically challenged breathed a sigh of relief that we had been spared the ordeal.

Sunday morning worship was also very beautiful with people giving thanks for everything from the river ( brought in a small cups by some of the children) to the sense of family. We think we should make our family holiday every year the weekend after the kids break up. Any takers?

I’m a bluebell!

After church today we had a shared lunch and then a group of us went for a walk in Gledhow Valley Woods to look at the fantastic bluebells. Here is a photo of some of us trying to be a bluebell!

Thank you walkers ……

THANK YOU to all the walkers, bumblers, cyclists, prayers, texters of support and donaters who made the 3 Yorkshire peaks picnic such a success! The children’s team managed to get to the foot of Pen-y-Ghent, with much joke telling, sheep impressions and singing. The one peakers strode on with style, waving their beautiful flags with pride on the mountain top. The ‘hard core’ of Andrea, Sarah, Amy, Danny and Burj skipped their way through torrential rain and flooded bogs to complete the course in under 12 hours. Go team go!

If you haven’t yet had the chance to show your support for the courage, flag waving and joke telling motley crew, please visit our Just Giving page.

3 Peaks Challenge – arrangements

Hi team!

Hope all are well and looking forward to our communal meet next Saturday.

7 days to go until All Hallows 3 Peak (ish) picnic! Although you might be put off by the words 3 Peaks (!) the ethos of the walk will be to go at the pace of the slowest, have a lot of fun and of course raise some funds for the church. Think of it as a long picnic or a short one. A day for all to enjoy with or without children of all ages, sizes.

Here’s the plan with various opportunities to join in and opt out. We have arranged it in such a way that if you are not sure, you could still give it a shot to do all 3. But if you get tired after one or two, there will be back up for you to opt out and hop into a car. Please bring food to share and enough water. There is another big sponsored walk going on that day so it’ll be cosy, lots of people will be around to talk to and mix with!

For those who are going to do 2 or 3 peaks with flags (walk headed by Andrea/ Burj):
Phone Andrea-07970749329 Phone Burj- 07899033131

Please let us know if you intend to come along for any part of the walk so we can make sure we don’t leave without you! It’ll be great to have you all with us, to walk, sit and have a picnic. A jolly good day out for one and all.

If you aren’t able to come but would like to contribute to the day, please sponsor us! We have set ourselves a target of £1000. Here’s the link to the Just giving page (for your hi tech friends) or there’s sponsorship forms at church and a link to print out more here!
