Eighteen children and their families joined us for a Messy Christmas. The children made cards, Christmas stockings, Pomanders, tree decorations, lovely Santa Claus badges and even “Donkey Dung” from the stable of Jesus! Our Minister, Farai, entertained the children with the Christmas story. We had a really happy time and hope that our guests enjoyed it too. How good it was to see adults and children busy creating decorative things. Our thanks go to the helpers who manned tables. Items created were then taken home.
The coffee morning today was in aid of the Salvation Army. We made £125, which included £10 for a beautiful Christmas wreath which was donated. Sheilas's daughter makes them in aid of cancer research and takes orders at £15 each. There was a good turn out, considering it was a wet morning.
Whitacre Congregation is a vibrant mix of young and old who enjoy meeting for Sunday worship. Do come and join us.
