Bake and Pray – now in it’s 15th year!!!

Once more, as Christmas approaches, it’s that time of year when we can all think about being involved in “Bake and Pray” – now in its 15th year and still going strong! It is a simple way of blessing and thanking all our businesses on Harborne High Street, for their services to the community throughout the year.

There have been quite a number of changes on our High Street during the year. New businesses have moved in, familiar ones have relocated elsewhere, and some premises lie empty.

The idea of bake and pray is to choose, and sign up for a shop (or more than one!) to bake or buy a cake or other goodies, and to pray for that shop. In the month of December, take along the cake/other goodies to the shop, and as you bring them Christmas greetings, you can use the opportunity to invite them along to the carol service…( details of which will be in the Christmas card you can collect from me , to go with the cake) This is something  for everyone to get involved in: as an individual, as a family, or  as a group venture.  Do feel free to email me to reserve your shop, to avoid the disappointment of someone else getting in first!

I will be in the main hall between the morning services, and again after the evening service every Sunday from Nov 12th, until every shop is signed up for!! You will also be able to pick up your card there, to go with the cake, and some simple instructions. Feel free to get in touch with any questions you might have.

I know that many businesses look forward to their cake at Christmas, so let’s not disappoint them. Let’s together make a difference on our High Street this Christmas.
