Christingle Event December 2016

This year we held three Christmas Events on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so that everyone had a chance to come.  People were invited to come on one or more days and some people even met Father Christmas more than once!!  Everyone made Christingles, including the adults.  Then there was a short chat about their meaning, followed by a visit from Father Christmas. As you can see from the photos, everyone had a great time!

Harvest Event October 2016

Children and adults alike had a great time with the playdough, making animals, fruit and vegetables.  On another table, pipe cleaners were transformed into animals and farm machinery and on another, plates were decorated with animal stickers and surrounded with gold to denote God’s goodness to us. One of the leaders gave a short chat about how God’s power changes seeds into large trees, illustrated with real fir cones and conkers.
