We meet in the large hall every Sunday and go into the Church for a very short time at the beginning of the service and then have lots of different activities in the hall.
We have a Combi-Television which allows us to play DVD's, connect our laptop, and watch and play songs the Storybook Bible and other Children's christian programmes.
It was good to see a number of the children and their families joining in the Congregational Lunch in January. The boys and girls enjoyed sausage rolls and crisps instead of the haggis! We were delighted that people took away the pots of bulbs which the boys and girls had planted in the autumn.
We continue to have a mix of activities each week, including stories (sometimes short DVD's), music, crafts and games. All children are invited to come along and join us. We would be very happy to see you. Please contact us if you know of any children who would like to come along and find out more.
December was a very busy month for us, with the Christmas Tree Festival where the children decorated a Prayer Tree and displayed a book with the childrens' own prayers. Well done boys and girls! We also raised funds through the baking stall. We really appreciate the help from everyone who supplied wonderful baking, sold cakes and bought the goodies. Thank you so much.
As we begin the new session we look forward to involving the children in lots of different activities to keep them busy and as ever we welcome any children who would like to come and join us.
As always, the children would like to thank everyone who so generously support us through the year - it is very much appreciated.
At Hallowe'en, the children watched the latest World Vision Christian dvd of "Patch the Pumpkin and the Peace Camp". When someone new comes along, Patch shows that he has a big heart and encourages the others to be kind, to share, to help others and to include everyone.
As a follow-up to this, the next week we made BUDDY BRACELETS which will be sent to boys and girls in other countries to show that we care about them.
The Faith Mission Shop book stall was a huge success this year, with a total of £125 in commission and donations. We would like to thank everyone from the Church and the Women's Guild who kindly purchased cards, books and gifts. Grateful thanks also to Jennifer, Mary and Sheila for all their work in organising and running the book stall.
In the next few weeks, the boys and girls will be preparing some items for the Sunday School tree for the Christmas Tree Festival ..... it's a surprise!
All children are welcome to come along and join us each Sunday.
Once again this year, the boys and girls worked hard filling backpacks for Mary's Meals and as usual they did a great job. The following week, the children were shown a short fun video and took part in a great activity with lots of messy paints!
In preparation for harvest, we planted little pots of cress seeds which grew very quickly and one week later were taken to the harvest thanksgiving service.
This was a lively service involving children from all the Church organisations and it was good to see them all joining in the final song playing a variety of musical instruments. We would be delighted to see more children joining us each Sunday.
