JOIN US FOR
This year, the children would like to invite our elders to join us
for Christmas activities in the hall on Sundays throughout
advent. This is particularly aimed at those older members of the
congregation who may not get to spend Christmas with
youngsters but would like to share in some of their excitement
at this special time. Liz, Robin, and the kids have planned
activities designed to be meaningful and fun for young and old
together, and Dr. Jo will be on hand to make sure everyone is
well looked after. Places are limited! If you would like to join us,
please sign up after church asap or contact the office.
