CHRISTMAS ANGELS READY

 

A group met together on Thursday afternoon Nov. 8th and amidst lots of hilarity,  prepared over 500 knitted angels for the local community.

The angels will be distributed during the first week of Advent and will be left in strategic places around the town to convey Christmas greetings to the local community. Some will be placed on street benches, others on railings, in telephone kiosks, in the library and in shops.

It is hoped that the people finding the angels will realise that the angels have all been made with loving care and that they bring joy to the receivers at Christmas time. Also with each angel will be a little card giving details of the Christmas services being held at Radford Road and inviting people to come along and find the true meaning of Christmas.

Many thanks to all those who gave time and skill to produce this heavenly host.

WORKING PARTY

A working party wielded tools and paint brushes to give a facelift to the Church Hall and to do running repairs to several outdoor jobs. The group, spearheaded by Bridget, tackled the tasks with verve and vigour. Much light hearted banter made the morning speed by and by lunch time (fish and chips eaten together in the hall) the areas tackled looked much improved. 

Well done to all the volunteers, some of whom are pictured in the following photos.

CHILDREN’S ACTIVITY MORNING NOV 1ST 2018: ‘JESUS LIGHT OF THE WORLD’

Many thanks to all who volunteered at our Light Party Holiday Club this half term. It was a joy to seen 20 children take part, we learnt that Jesus said that he was ‘the Light of the World’, but we also remembered that Jesus told his disciples that they are to be ‘light to the world’. We played games passing on the light. Learnt a memory verse: ‘His life gave light to all’ – John 1:4 and carved Jesus pumpkins to remind us that Jesus’ light shines in the darkness. It was especially lovely to see many of the young people singing and marching along to the song, ‘This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine’ at the end of the club.
