| 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
It was lovely to share Messy Palm Sunday with you and Coco, as we processed round the church, both inside and out, singing and waving our palms.
This Thursday evening (tonight) our Maundy Thursday service of the Last Supper is at 8pm at St. Mary’s.

Good Friday Messy Church (tomorrow) is at 9.15am in the Hall. You can stay with your children, or go into church for the solemn service of the Veneration of the Cross, as we support Jesus, who died for us.
Our joyous Easter Day service is at 10am, where we will sing Allelluias in our flower filled church, and enjoy our Easter eggs, brown like the earth Jesus was buried in, and hollow because the tomb is empty – Jesus is alive!

What a wonderful Mothering Sunday service last week. Thank you Sharon – and all those who helped make the gorgeous posies!
This Sunday is our Early Birds service at 9.15am in the Hall. Ruth is doing the story, so please come and support her. We are so lucky to have some lovely mums, who give their time to tell our stories each month. If any more of you, mums or dads, would like to do this too, please let us know.
Next Saturday, 13th April, is the church spring clean before Holy Week and Easter. If lots of you can spare an hour max, the “faithful few” won’t have to spend several hours, mostly on their aged knees!!
Holy Week. the last week of Jesus’ life starts on Palm Sunday and ends with his resurrection on Easter morning. Amazing to think this all actually happened in one week – his triumphal entry in to Jerusalem, the Last Supper, His arrest, torture and crucifixion and his resurrection.
. We have Messy Church at 4pm on Sunday 14th April. The Good Friday Workshop is at 9.15 on Friday 19th April and our Easter Day service is 10am.
Enjoy the holidays!

Don’t forget, the clocks change!
Before we start our Easter services, we are spring cleaning our church on Saturday 13th April. Please can you spare an hour in the morning, to come and help? Mums, dads and children are all welcome – many hands make light work. There is a sign up sheet at the back of the church, don’t leave all the work to other people! Your church needs YOU!
The next day, 14th April, is Palm Sunday and it is Messy Church at 4pm and Coco, the shetland pony is coming to pretend to be the donkey. We will parade round the outside of the church with him, waving palms.
