In Scarborough many faith-based events had been planned across the town for our 12-15 March Come and See Mission weekend; John Carter sampled one on the Friday.

At St Martin-on the Hill one of many events to reach out to the local community, was a new venture on Friday, the ‘Craf-Tea shed’.

The inaugural model making and craft afternoon was making use of the church’s undercroft, and drew some half a dozen model-making enthusiasts, working on a variety of projects including a motorised Thomas the Tank Engine.

Organisers Craig Henderson and Martin Dalby said there were a lot of people in flats and bedsits around the church who would appreciate the chance to sit down, ‘have a brew’ and enjoy the space together to work on hobbies and crafts.
