On Friday 2nd November we had our annual family fireworks fun. We welcomed over 60 people from our Church and wider family and guides and brownies too. A fun evening was had by all with board games, crafts, food and of course, the all important fireworks! Thank you to everyone who helped and came along to support the evening.
This weekend was our harvest festival. On Saturday we had a Christian Aid “Big Brekkie” where lots of people came to get their cooked breakfast/brunch/lunch! A grand total of £187 was raised. On Sunday Revd. Adam talked about celebration and living our faith, as well as presenting out ecochurch plaque. Photos of the harvest display can be seen below.
Yesterday we had our first Messy Church. During the afternoon we took part in different craft activities to make us think about Christmas. There was a picture of angels and sheep with plenty of glitter. A manger where we were encouraged to write something we would like to say to Jesus. Racing Angels to talk about how God delivered messages. Edible nativity scenes to tell the story of Christmas. All this was finished off with a giant Christmas wreath in…
Paul Bell kicked of our Advent and Christmas Celebrations with a wonderful evening of music, including his own songs (both Christmasy and others) as well as a selection of his other favourite carols. The evening was full of his now trademark humour and poignant lyrics. It was a wonderful way to start advent. You can find his music and order his Christmas album on his website http://paulbellmusic.com/
