Come and start the New Year in the best possible way with an informal 'party' style service at St Peter and St John church.
From 9.30am for Children's Choir - singing, snacks and warm up games - come in your PJs if you like!!
From 10.30am - short informal 'party' style service begininning with Bucks Fizz (for the grown ups) and bacon butties for everyone. The children's choir will perform and we will have a short very informal service around the theme: "Hopes and dreams for 2017"
Join us for a fantastic family service that see's the children dressed up to help tell the Christmas story with our ‘turn up and take part’ nativity service.
We can provide costumes for shepherds, angels and kings or come along in
your own outfit.
Everyone gets involved in a simple re-telling of the Christmas story.
This Sunday at 4pm - a lovely service by candlelight with plenty of traditional carols, readings and also some choir performances. Come along in good time to collect you tea light in a jam jar and a little tipple of mulled wine on the way in. The whole family is welcome, what better way to begin your Christmas celebrations. Come and enjoy a little 'hush before the rush'!
Messy Church tomorrow: make an edible angel, some Christmas decorations, or a wooden spoon puppet. Hear the story about Mary's visit from the angel and the good news she heard. Do come along at 5pm for tea together (jacket potatoes and fillings) followed by crafts and fun, then story and celeration time. We are finished by 6.30pm
This morning's Christmas Bazaar was a great success. We raised £1031 - thank you to everyone who came along and everyone who contributed in anyway from buying raffle tickets, donating prizes for the raffle, running stalls, baking cakes, serving up refreshments or lugging boxes of books up and down from the loft as well as moving a tide of tables and chairs back and forwards. Fabulous team effort! Well done.
