“We tried so many new things and laughed such a lot”
"We had the most fantastic holiday"

Dear Friend
For over 25 years we have been offering single parent families the opportunity to spend quality time together. This year, we’re excited to be hosting our first adventure weekend for single parent dads and their children.  They'll enjoy a variety of activities from canoeing to campfires, archery to abseiling, together with other families.
If you know any single dads (they don't need to be the primary caregiver) with children aged 8-15, please can you let them know about our 'dads only' weekend. We'd love to have them join us for two days full of adventure.
Over the years, many families have said the Take A Break Action Holiday was the best time away they’d ever had.
It would be great if you could share this with any dads who'd benefit from it.
Kat Seney-Williams
Single Parent Support Coordinator

New Life Church Christmas Concert
with Amy Faith Morley
Monday 16th December
in the Ballroom at the Winding Wheel
Doors open at 7pm

Everyone welcome.  Tickets £2.50 at the door (Children free)
01246 200768

“Amy is a woman on a Journey of faith, who possess the rare ability of communicating the triumphs and tragedies of her experience with God; through the original contemporary songs she both writes and sings..."

Amy Faith Morley is an independent British singer-songwriter of country/folk style music.  Her uplifting debut album ‘Morning Star’ was released in 2014, followed by a tour ‘The Journey’ where she travelled from place to place with her acoustic guitar and a vintage suitcase filled with message-in-a-bottle style postcards which she gave out to her listeners!   This included churches, cafes, bars, festivals, homeless soup kitchens, youth groups and nursing homes.
It is evident that wherever Amy plays, people are not only inspired by her warm, comforting vocals but also encouraged by her testimony from a life of brokenness, fear and Identity-struggles, to finding faith, healing and ongoing freedom.
