At the Elders Meeting on 3rd January we constructively reviewed all that had been organised and presented throughout the Christmas period and agreed that we could be pleased with support received in the variety of worship and social activities offered.
On most occasions the church at Kingsway was pleasantly filled with Christmas Day itself attracting the largest congregation at Fifty five. The Crib service was a delightful act of worship as Rayne and Lewis placed the characters one by one as we worked through the service of readings and carols.
The festival service was in the capable hands of the elders who aided by some technology presented a well received and much appreciated service.
On Christmas Day most came early and enjoyed seasonal refreshments before we gathered in church for a lively service. How great to have some kiddies there with their presents.
The Wise men took centre stage for the Epiphany service on 6″”January.
Our December Messy Church at Woodlands was a truly marvellous evening. Well attended by all ages and this time we went into the church for worship and heard the Christmas story told by Kevin the sheep! Then it was back to the hall for a delicious shared meal that had been brought by everyone present.
The long awaited Christingie service on Christmas Eve attracted a larger than ever congregation with a packed church and people stood at the back. Could this in part because word had leaked out the ministers were going to be dressed as a Christingle? It’s a wonderful service and how magical the church looked as by pure candlelight we iifted the roof as we sang ”Hark! The herald-angies sing, glory to the new born king!”
On the last Sunday in Decmeber when members of the three churches united at Feniscowles Methodist Church John and Alan did look a little more normal!
