On Sunday 18 December, the children from Sunday Club and the young people from Gravity joined together to present the Christmas story in a contemporary way in the morning service at Addington Road.
Using an excellent script written by Babs Root the youngsters combined traditional and present-
In the evening, Diane Watts led a traditional service of readings and carols where the young people of the church again played a part alongside those of more mature years!
After the service around 100 people enjoyed hot mince pies and drinks in the main hall. Thanks go to Beverley and George Simpson's homegroup for arranging the refreshments.
In the afternoon of Christmas Eve, the church was busy with lots of small children and their families in contrast to the peaceful and more reflective service which Diane led late at night!
We welcomed in Christmas Day at Addington Road with a late night service with a very special atmosphere as we prepared to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
It was great to have a full church on Christmas Day with many visitors and grown-
We all enjoyed seeing the children's favourite presents!
Diane produced an enormous Christmas cracker to explain the message of Christmas – and with a 'motto' based on John 3:16 which a long line of children held all across the front of the platform
Around 40 people – guests and helpers – enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day lunch prepared by Kate Ashton and her helpers.
People who would otherwise have been on their own were welcomed with drinks and nibbles before sitting down at beautifully decorated tables to a traditional roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
Lunch was followed by a quiz and some musical entertainment. Teas and mince pies were served as the guests watched the Queen's speech and each guest received a goody bag with little treats to take with them as they left for home.
It was a very happy occasion and, as usual, the helpers enjoyed it at least as much as the guests!
Goody bags ready to take home!
