The Noise 2015!
With just days to go ‘till The Noise 2015, the weekend is starting to take shape, and we are getting excited!!
The seven local family fun afternoons are looking good, with lots of great ideas coming from each community as to how we can make these events even better than last year! And, it’s never too early to start praying for the weather… :)
It’s great to be working with local schools and Family Support workers who are referring families and elderly people to us, where a team of Noise volunteers are really going to make a positive impact in their day to day lives by doing some work in their home or garden.
Senior citizens are already booking their places for their banquet and cream teas, invites are going out for the football tournaments, and there are other exciting ideas bubbling away too.
This is all great, but we need you to make all this happen!!
See you in May!

'The Noise' 2015 is being launched in churches and communities across Bristol! This year will be the 15th year that Christians from all over Bristol will join the local church in showing God's love in practical ways in a high profile weekend of projects and events.
Last year, 850 people volunteered over the three days, giving nearly 8000 hours of time. These volunteers came from over 50 different churches or groups. They worked on a massive variety of Community Projects, hosted and ran local Family Fun Afternoons, a Community BBQ, Senior Citizens events and sports activities. We are looking forward to doing all of this again, and continuing to build relationships with local churches and community groups through The Noise 2015!
Over the May Bank Holiday Weekend (2nd – 4th May), volunteers who take part in The Noise will be working with the communities of Easton and Barton Hill in East Bristol, as well as in Horfield, Lawrence Weston, Lockleaze, Manor Farm, Southmead, Sea Mills, Shirehampton and Upper Horfield, in North Bristol.
Although The Noise is a high profile weekend of events, it aims to demonstrate what the church is about, and highlight the good and positive work that is happening in the community, all year around.
We want to encourage you to share this with your congregation/pastorate/small groups and to encourage people to be involved in serving in these urban estates. Why not encourage a team to come for a day or the whole weekend? It is not just a youth event, but the whole church coming together in unity. It’s just one expression of the church in action in Bristol.
