Praise and Play Nativity 2014
The children began their morning in the church hall and then processed to the church to present the Christmas story in their own unique fashion – as always.
ADVENT FAMILY FUN LUNCH 7th December 2014
Once again nearly 80 people packed into the church hall.
We all enjoyed crafts organised around an Advent theme, followed by a delicious lunch. A new Advent tradition was introduced -chips were served after the puddings as the oven was slow to cook such large quantities! Then a time to finish off making Advent crowns, lanterns, stars, calendars, a nativity scene and even a word search followed, before we all made our way over to church for a service of light.
Helium balloons depicting “Jesus Light of the World”, and lively music, helped to make this a lively service of life ,energy and celebration.We left feeling the warmth of the fellowship and waving our glow sticks as we sang “walk in the light of Christ”
Our Sunday Club for those aged from two upwards currently meet once a month. They begin in church and then leave for their own activities returning in time for the end of the service. For further details please contact us at our office 01823 284253 or through the Contact Us section of this site.
Praise and Play:
Praise and play is a group for babies and pre school children and their parents, grandparents, carers and friends. It meets in the church hall on Wednesday’s during term time, at 10:00am, for a programme of singing, craft, play, refreshments, and fun!
Once a month there is a very informal Pram and Buggy Service is held in the church before returning to the hall. For further details please contact us at our office 01823 284253 or through the Contact Us section of this site.
Family Fun Afternoons:
Three or four times a year we hold a Family Fun Afternoon. This begins with a short informal service in church, is then followed by crafts for all the family and tea. Themes have included a pet service, a light and laughter party, the family, hands…
We hold an annual Holiday Club (usually in February) for children of Primary School Age.
We have Beavers, two Cub Packs, Brownies, Guides and two Scoutpacks, who meet in our church hall. During the year we try to hold services in church for each group, and their parents. For details of who to contact see the Who’s Who section.
The Associate Vicar at St George’s, the Revd Jenny Jeffery is the chaplain at Bishop Henderson School.
The post was created nearly seven years ago to in response to The Diocesan initiative “Changing Lives, Changing Churches, Changing Communities”, and works to deepen and extend links into the community.
It is currently funded by The Diocesan fund for Church growth, St George’s and St Michael’s churches, the school and a trust fund.
It is a “fresh expression” of church and enables the church to be in the community. At the school, supporting staff, governors, pupils and their families, and with the Family Support Worker and the Children’s Centre. The chaplain also supports the religious education curriculum and the development of spirituality within the school.
The post is for twelve hours. It has been exciting to see its development.
