Halloween saw this year another of our student nights: some twenty international students from the university braved the ghouls and the darkness to walk done the hill and spend an hour or two with church members, keen to share with them some of our seasonal pursuits and activities.
There was bobbing for apples and, looking ahead to bonfire night, parkin and treacle toffee to eat, as well as the excitement of a few indoor fireworks. And lots of conversation – as well as universal admiration for Yvonne’s knitted pumkins.
The next students night will be Tuesday December 5th – with the usual light-hearted introduction to how we Brits celebrate Christmas and new year. If you’re a student in Durham, you are warmly invited to join us.
