Our Children’s Nativity Service is coming up this Sunday – all welcome, it its sure to be a morning to remember!
Our Christmas Services are now on our calendar, and below. We look forward to seeing you at St Mary’s over the festive period.
At our All-Age worship this morning the theme was about us being adopted as God’s children. As regular worshippers will know, Charlie and Alice make frequent appearances in this service, but as they have moved house with Amanda and Derek, we have adopted two new puppets ourselves. Following a competition in the service this morning, their new names are George and Jemima.
We look forward to many exciting adventures with them in All-Age services in the future.
The morning is suitable for children ages 4-11 and will be a fun packed session with craft, games and lots of fun.
The cost is just £3 per child. To book your place ring Amanda on (01924) 472375.
At our All-Age service yesterday we learn about Samuel and about listening to God. This video highlights his story:
Then Charlie and Alice talked about listening to God:
Sixteen children (and their parents!) braved the unseasonable snow drifts and dodgy driving conditions to enjoy the latest Childrens’ Activity Morning. ‘Feaster your eyes’ – yes there has to be a corny title to any activity morning – was three hours full of craft, games and stories.
Throughout the morning, children learnt about the story of Easter from Palm Sunday through to Easter Sunday, and they were given reminders of each part to put in a box they made and decorated as part of one of the crafts.
The crafts the children made were: Easter cards, a decorated egg (Faberge style), chocolate nests, a donkey mask, and an Easter basket and box.
Many thanks to all the helpers who made it through the snow.
We are pretty convinced after the fun and games, that a good time was had by all!
