What a weekend! For past few weeks there has been a considerable amount preparations going on behind the scenes to get ready for our Confirmation Service. There were service sheets to construct and print. The baptism pool had to be picked up, put together and filled. The candidates had to be prepared and Bishop Toby consulted. The soup lunch had to be freshly prepared and cooked. All of which went into making the service a wonderful occasion, which will be remembered by everyone who took part. Our thanks go to everyone who helped to make the day such a success.
If that was not enough for one weekend, Saturday was filled with two wonderful events. Holly and Katie held a fundraising Ceilidh for their trip to Ghana to work with children. They raised £717, which is enough to pay for all the costs of the trip. Well Done Holly and Katie and thank you to everyone who supported the evening. P.S. The food was excellent.
This was followed, admittedly only by about an hour, with Kintsugi Tales presented by Julie Wilkinson of the Zephaniah Trust, to celebrate 15 years of storytelling. There were great stories and good music provided by are own musicians and friends.
Another great evening with some very special people. Again behind the scenes much hard work and preparation had gone into bringing forth such an enterprise. Well done to all concerned.
Finally Sunday closed with the first rehearsal for this year’s Walking Nativity. Parts were allocated, lines rehearsed and costumes tried on. We have a completely new script this year – courtesy of Julie Wilkinson and it has some delightful new twists on the Nativity Story. The performance takes place at 5.00pm on Saturday 1st December. Why not come along and witness the acting talent of some very familiar faces.
