Back To School Sunday
18th September 10.30 family service
Today we welcomed many children, families, congregation and local schools to our special service. The children brought up candles to represent their school and the school logos were hanging above the chancel steps. Our Young people helped with a presentation that included a quiz, a gospel reading and concluded with the children handing out wooden teaspoons for their teaspoon prayers:- T Thank you, S Sorry, P prayer .
After the service we took part in a picnic and had fun making scarecrows for the Urmston festival. Do look out for our scarecrow vicar and chorister
Play and Stay Craft
Each Monday we have crafts story rhyme time and lots more. Here are some of our craft pictures.
During August we had a regular attendance of children at our 10.30 Sunday service. Numbers ranged from 3 to 15! The children enjoyed games and crafts based on bible stories and shared their craft work with the congregation. Many thanks to our team of leaders for all their organisation.
Ella, who is one of our young members, designed an invitation leaflet that is now available to give to new families and with our baptism anniversary cards.
