We ran a morning for children on January 2nd. The theme was ‘Shepherds and Sheep’ and we looked at fluffy Christmas lambs and the adult Jesus as our Shepherd.

Thanks to Jane and all the helpers for making the morning so successful.

The children followed the Biblical story as we played Hide and Seek when the shepherd had to leave his flock of sheep to go and search for the sheep that was lost; we enjoyed craft activities and made sheep masks from paper plates, sheep name badges, colourful shepherds crooks and made shortbread biscuits in the shape of shepherds and sheep. The children enjoyed painting a large mural of the Lost Sheep and the morning finished with everyone enjoying actions songs. It was a delightful morning enjoyed by children and helpers and everyone is looking forward to the next Activity morning which will probably be at Easter.

A large congregation attended our Christingle Service and everyone everyone enjoyed making and lighting their Christingle.

We learned of the significance of the orange, the ribbon, the sticks and the sweeties and that the candle in the middle represents Jesus, the Light of the World.

Children and adults delighted in making their Christingles and, after the service, took them home, to remind their families that Jesus is the Light of the World.

Our  sbaby in mangerervice at 10.00am on Christmas morning was a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ in a crude stable in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago. The service was led by the Revd. James Church, our United Reformed Minister.

Families, friends and relations came together for this joyous celebration.

Members of the congregation brought along one of their Christmas presents to show to the congregation during the service
