WMC: December 2018
Kids@Church In November we prepared a little for the all-age Christmas service on Sunday 16th December by thinking and talking about angels — what do they look like? What would it have been like for Mary? How would we respond if God sent an angel to us and asked us to do something extraordinary?
In the hall we were very busy making lots of shortbread biscuits to share with everyone after the service on 16th (don't worry they are now in the freezer!). Everyone is warmly invited to the service on 16th December at 10:30 as we explore the Christmas story together — feel free to dress up as an angel or a shepherd if you wish to do so!
Kids@Church is an informal service for primary-school aged children and their families and we meet monthly (the 3rd Sunday of the month) at 9:30 am for about 45 minutes including some time in the hall playing games, doing craft or cooking — new friends always welcome!
Kids@Church will next meet on Sunday 20th January at 9:30 am in the church.
