We held a free breakfast event for families on Sunday, July 28th at 9.30 a.m. and welcomed families who are busy on Sundays with family activities but dropped by into church to join us for this event.
We spent a short time of craft on the theme of sharing, based around the time when Jesus shared breakfast on the beach with his friends. We sang a song about sharing and watched a film short about The Miracle Man. Then we shared a real breakfast together including cereal, toast and spreads with tea, coffee or fruit juice. We had puppets visiting us during the morning too! Every child received their own copy of The Miracle Man so they could read about Jesus having breakfast on the beach again.
New Programme for 2020
Now we are offering a further four Family Breakfasts over the Spring and Summer terms. A new start time of
9.00 a.m. means we can offer breakfast first before the family activities.
Sundays: February 2; April 5; May 17; July 5.
You can serve yourself for breakfast with cereals, toast & spreads with tea, coffee and juice.
We had a lovely time together on February 2nd when we looked at Candlemas and the children built their own version of the temple where Jesus was taken as a baby by his parents - a bit like a christening ceremony. We watched a little film about this and sang songs along with instruments. We especially enjoyed "This little light of mine" and sang it with the puppets in a little film.
Next Family Breakfast: Sunday April 5 on a theme of Palm Sunday is cancelled due to coronavirus.
Please check this website for further updates. It may be necessary to cancel the rest of our current planned programme.
