You are here: Home Events & Happenings
We hold a variety of events and activities at the House which we will list here and you can link to further information.
If there is something you would like to hold at Bridge House and advertise through our website do contact us and we can discuss possibilities.
Next year we hope to be hosting Snowdrop Teas again for the SANDS charity, probably on Saturday and Sunday, 17th & 18th February from 2:00pm. (Date to be confirmed:-)
This event is for families who have experienced the death of a baby during pregnancy, at birth or soon after birth.
There is the opportunity to meet with and talk to others who have similar experiences. Refreshments are available.
You can also plant snowdrops in the labyrinth on our land as an way of remembering and celebrating the life of your baby.
(Revised Nov 17)
Each year we hold a fund raising lunch, normally in aid of OXFAM, sometime in September.
The idea is that we provide a simple lunch of home made soup and bread, followed by home made fruit crumble and custard, usually donated by other folk. Visitors are invited to donate what they would normally have spent on Sunday lunch.
We have settled on the weekends commencing on the second Friday of each month, and an outline programme is set out below. Nothing is set in stone so things may happen differently depending on who comes, how we are feeling, what's going on for us all. However, the fundamental concept of the weekends is that we come with an openness and willingness to positively engage with transformative activities in the belief that God wants to change us, develope us, transform us; whatever that may mean!!!
