This year's Missions
Jack and Sarah Winterburn
Jack's family has played a big part in Emmanuel life for many years and it was no surprise that Jack was in one of the first teams to go to Moldova. After a few visits he became more involved and started to spend practically the whole of his summer holiday there, serving the church and helping with the children's work. At university he was a member of Kings Church in Durham and joined their intern programme before becoming a teacher. His long term vision, however, is to become a missionary, so last year, he and his wife, Sarah, spent a term at All Nations Bible College. They have a little boy called Ben and the whole family will be moving to Tours in France within the next few months. They will be working alongside other missionaries in a church that was planted 20 year ago. They want to encourage French Christians and reach French people with the gospel.
The Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation is a drug and alcohol education charity that aims to support young people to make safe choices about drugs and alcohol and reduce harm.
Daniel was a popular teenager and very much a part of all the youth activities at Emmanuel. Then one night, he went to a rave with friends and took some ecstasy.
The Foundation was set up in January 2014 by Tim and Fiona Spargo-Mabbs in response to Daniel's death at the age of 16.
The charity works with young people, parents, teachers and professionals, in schools, colleges and communities across the UK, through an evidence-based programme of drugs education. They deliver workshops to students, training to teachers and other professionals, workshops for parents, and a Youth Ambassador programme for older teens. They provide planning and resources for teachers to deliver drugs education throughout secondary school, and they fund an annual Theatre in Education tour of the verbatim play written by Mark Wheeller which tells Dan’s story, and has huge impact.
Ideas for concert snacks
No chance of a picnic on the lawn, so try some of these snacks. There is no need to rush to eat before the concert. Prepare some concert snacks and enjoy a meal in front of your screen.
Chicken goujons and dip
A small pack of goujons from Sainsbury's will cost about £1.60 and you will just need to heat them up in the oven.
A bottle of Newman's Own blue cheese dressing will cost £1.75 and this will make an ideal accompaniment.
Carrot and cucumber sticks with hummus
A 200g tub of classic hummus from Sainsbury's costs £1.20. Make sure the sticks of carrot and cucumber are thin and you will easily be able to nibble this until the interval.
Crackers and cheese
Buy some of your favourite cheeses and a few grapes to make a luxury cheeseboard. A packet of Tuc crackers from Sainsbury's will cost 75p and you won't need any butter with them.
Cherry tomatoes and olives
Get creative with this. Add a spoonful of dressing to the tomatoes and olives and a pinch of coriander for a beautiful Mediterranean salad. Perfect for a musical evening.
