Each year we run a family pancake party on or around Shrove Tuesday.
Crafts, games, songs, reflection, and food - a great family time is always enjoyed!
The usual format is ... on arrival the children enjoy age relevant craft activities while they wait for their friends to arrive. After the craft activities, children are grouped into teams and the exciting pancake races begin! If your children come to our annual summer Holiday Club they will be familiar with the format of our lively praise party and short talks, which is a feature of the pancake party.
No party is complete without food, and pancakes with different fillings and sauces are ready to eat picnic style towards the end of the evening.
Feedback from our 2016 event ...
That was the feeling at the Pancake Party!
The worship area was buzzing with people of all ages enjoying crafts and activities, followed by pancake races and worship songs. Then they heard about Lent and the importance of knowing Jesus.
Of course we could not have a pancake party without eating pancakes! Various toppings were on offer and some youngsters managed two!
Altogether over 50 children attended with their parents and carers – half of whom have no regular church connection at all and many were attending Mount Pleasant Baptist Church for the first time!
We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 party - come back to this page towards the end of 2016 to see the party details and time.
