We welcomed a very full church of families tonight. Many children took part in a gatheirng by the crib in nativity costumes. A service of carols (accompanied by percussion), prayers and sparkling star wands led us onto the procession to the crib to end our service with lanterns and a path of candles. Thanks to all who came and all who prepared our church.

TOY SERVICE 4TH DECEMBER
Many toys were donated at our servcie today and will go to local families in need.
Ella (age 11) took part in a presentation for our toy service in front of the whole 10.30 congregation that included all ages (babes to 90+). She prepared her own talk and read from the pulpit so eloquently. She had obviously thought so carefully about the subject and everyone was engaged in listening to her. The presentation was linked to a talk by one of our group leaders Liz and we were all guided towards thinking and praying for those less fortunate than our selves.
