Big Site re-shuffle

FBCXT.ORG is changing. This site will be changing as it has not been used for over 5 years. The Bread by Faith will continue to be hosted for a while on, but that too will be changing in the longer term.

I still continue to spread God's word to the young people around me - I just do it in East Finchley in London rather than in rural Suffolk!

deserts 1 20130321 1491285691  Well it seemed like a good idea at the time... to have a "Desert Off" instead of a "Bake Off", but then we were faced with a lot of stuff to taste and eat :-P

Not that that was too much of a problem, really, I mean, what a selection!!!

I was imagining maybe a handful of different things to judge and we get a whole table full of food - and not a single main course in sight - what bliss!deserts 2 20130321 1429674045

And so I chickened out and chose the ones that did not manage to bring anything in to do the judging so that I would not have to choose between the chocolates, cakes, cookies, pancakes and all those other temptations!

Oh, and not forgetting the birthday cake (not shown) which never got touched because we had so much other stuff to get through!

I think I may have put on a few pounds just looking at this table full - never mind the extra pounds whilst eating my way through each one... I just had to try each one in turn!!!

I guess a week of work has to be done now to try and get some of this weight off :-)

Thank you all for putting so much effort into a fantastic evening!

18th July

What are you going to be doing on 18th July? Think about it... #67Minutes

And now for something completely different!

This week for our activities week we will be doing something very different. Whilst it is not compulsory, I think we should all join in just because it will be such fun!

It's a "Desert Off!" Each person, or pair of people (no more than 2 in a team) will have to present a desert or cake or something sweet (biscuits, whatever...) for everyone to taste. That means making something that is not too small (but not too big otherwise we all end up being sick from eating too much) so that each person can taste test it. If you need anything baked or cooked then that will have to be done at home and the result brought to teens.cheesecake

As a bonus I will be preparing my easy cheese-cake at the church to show you how easy it is so you can impress your parents too.

Don't worry if you cannot bring anything because you may well be dragged into helping me portion out the cheese-cake into mini cakes.

But do try to have a go at something – it will be fun preparing it and even more fun eating it afterward!
