On the weekend of 8th / 9th of June, St. Mary`s Church in Windermere were pleased to welcome the `Elevate` Dance Company for a weekend of Dance Workshops and an evening performance which delighted and challenged people of every faith and none.
Elevate is based in London and is formed by the apprentices of the Springs Dance Company, Europe`s foremost professional Christian Dance Company which tours the UK and internationally performing and teaching work that is dynamic, entertaining and can be enjoyed by everyone, including those new to dance.
They perform and run workshops for a wide variety of audiences and at a wide variety of venues including theatres, schools, colleges, prisons, churches, cathedrals, festivals, conferences and outreach missions.
Their aim is to explore, through dance, faith and life issues from a Christian perspective. They seek to encourage dance within the church, education and the community and to pursue artistic and educational excellence.
Elevate were in Windermere as part of their 2013 UK tour and gave a day of tuition at St. Mary`s Nursery & Infant School and Windermere Junior School- along with Workshops for adults and young people at St. Mary`s Church. They also gave an entertaining Saturday evening performance, and they helped lead the Sunday Worship at St. Mary`s at 11.00am.

On Tuesday 6th November, Revd. David Wilmot, our Church Wardens, the Little Pips Leaders, Mums and Children took part in planting a Ribston Pippin Apple Tree in the grounds of the church. A short prayer was said, and the Vicar blessed the tree.
This tree was planted to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Year. An apple tree was chosen to signify that the church is the Parish Church of St. Mary’s, Applethwaite. Little Pips Mothers and Toddlers Group are so called because apples grow from pips!
The tree was donated by “Fruity Windermere” a Community Food Group whose aim is the encouragement of fruit growing in the Parish of Windermere, Bowness and Troutbeck Bridge.
As the children get older they will see the tree grow along with them. They will be able to tell their children, and future generations that they helped to plant the tree at St. Mary’s.
St. Mary's played host to the fourth Vision to Action day for the Westmorland and Furness Archdeaconry - the mark of discipleship that is Evangelism.
The day was led by the Revd. Ruth Crossley, with Bishop James and Bishop Robert. The day included a number of other talks and seminars and was attended by the clergy from across the archdeaconry.
