Raunds Fun Day
One Saturday in July each year the Church makes a gift to the town of a Fun Day. Located on the Town Square, the day involves kids rides, bouncy castles, music, pamper corner, face painting, kids activities, storytelling, refreshments and free burgers. It extends into the evening with a Live Music concert and refreshments.
The Church is frequently invited to lead assemblies in the local Primary Schools in the Raunds area.
One week each year in the summer the Church run a Holiday Club for school children in Years 1 – 7. This takes place at the Saxon Hall in Raunds from 10.00 am – 12.30 pm. This is a fun time involving Games, crafts, drama, stories, singing and dancing using a Scripture Union resource. The children often say they wish the club would fill the whole of the summer holidays!
Raunds Community Café opens each Thursday between 9:30am and midday. The cafe serves low-cost refreshments including teas, coffees, bacon rolls and freshly made cakes. A range of support services are offered from the café such as food parcels, computer support, energy advice, form filling and help with budgeting and debts. The café is run in partnership with other Raunds churches.
Local residents can receive support with personal budgeting and debt support through our CAP Money Course. The course is run over three sessions and teaches how to construct a household budget and stay out of debt.
