| Xandie’s SHOUT OUT …|
How wonderful to see so many of you at our beautiful Christingle service last sunday and for all the many children and teenagers who helped and the parents who helped in the hall and putting the chairs away.
This Sunday is Messy Christmas at 4pm in the church, when we will decorate the Christmas tree, that has kindly been donated to us, and make cards and decorations.
Hazel will then tell the Christmas story of Almighty God’s amazing present of his Son, Jesus, born as a human baby in a stable in Bethlehem to save mankind.
We will then have a Bring and Share tea, as there are no cooking facilities in the church. So Please bring a plate of food to share, we are providing sausages and sausage rolls. thank you!
The following Friday 14th Dec. is the Bulrushes Christmas party, which starts at 9.30 in the Hall, we shall go into church to listen to the Christmas story with Hazel and sing. We will be providing snacks, but it would be lovely if you could bring a plate of food to share and if your child has special dietary needs, please make sure you bring food that meets their requirements.
The Carol Service is 16th December, when the junior choir will sing away in a manger. Afterwards we will draw the Hamper Raffle in the Hall.
God bless you
Opportunities to offer St Michael’s your skills and talents
At the moment there are many voluntary roles at St Michael’s – big and small – which are, or soon will be, vacant. Sharon has displayed in church a poster-sized “tree” with bare branches and also (21!) leaves scattered nearby, each representing a vacant role.
The invitation to each of us at St Michael’s is to prayerfully consider whether we can write our names on the reverse of one of the leaves as a way of offering our gifts and service to God and to each other.
By following the link below (Roles to be filled) you will be able to see the information as it is displayed in church. Do please look at the thumbnail descriptions and see if there is something which it would delight you to consider offering, and do feel free to have a “without obligation” exploratory chat about any of these roles to find out more: Roles to be filled.
