Sunday Club New Year's Party
Our party was held on Saturday 14th Jan which started with the children's tea at 6.30 everyone had contributed to a bring and share tea. Adults then joined us at 7.00pm for their tea whilst the children played a variety of games with the help of Margaret Stanbury and Eloise Fowler. The adults then joined in the fun and a further 2 hours of various games from poop the potato to indoor golf was enjoyed by everyone present.
Thanks to Valerie Morris for providing a big container of sweets to share! Thanks also to all the ladies for providing the tea, serving it and washing up and to Caroline Stuckey, Margaret Short, Pam Colwill, Linda Cole and Eloise Fowler for bringing along the games. As is tradition the evening ended with everyone joining in Auld Lang Syne.
The Sunday School Anniversary which was always held on the first Sunday in June was reintroduced this year with an All Age Worship Service led by Mrs Sue Griffin. The children from The Sunday Club took part. With the help of their leaders Linda Cole and Pearl Hopper they had started making a garden by arranging the foliage, during the service they came up at intervals and added flowers. They also sang some action songs with Sue and Luke Medland had learnt a poem about A Garden. Sue brought the theme of the service together with readings about the creation of the first garden, the Garden of Gethsemane and the final garden in Revelation. A service with a message for everyone.
