The morning service last Sunday was the Shorter Holy Communion with the Children’s Treasure Boxes. The content of the boxes is to help young children understand the various elements in the Communion service, by finding a clue in the service sheet and then find the matching item in the box. All these items match a part of the service thereby helping the youngsters to understand how to follow the full service.
Next Sunday is a very special day when the morning service will be Holy Communion but will include the Confirmation of 25 candidates by Bishop Richard of Bedford. This will be the final day of the Benefice Mission “Half Way There” which is being led by the Bishop. The Mission starts on Wednesday and there has been much thought to make it an interesting programme for all. There is a great programme to come this week but too much to mention in this column. There are however, posters around Town and full information can be found elsewhere on this website or our Facebook pages, so please have a look and join us if you can.
On Friday, Bishop Richard and the Rev Gill can be heard on BigglesFM at 8.15am, giving their Thoughts for the Day. Find them at 104.8 on the dial! This is half term week and our First Steps toddlers group would not normally meet but they will in fact have a special meeting on Friday as part of the Mission week. If anyone is interested, they meet at 9.30am in the church hall. Further details from Sandy at 01767260430.
