2nd Sunday of Advent
Thinking about hoping and waiting which is what we do in Advent, we thought of making lists of wishes – and then we thought about making lists of PRESENTS that we could give to Jesus. Here are some of them.
We lit another candle today as it’s the Second Sunday of Advent and we’re now half-way to Christmas. There’s an Advent story at the bottom of the page. Jump to it by clicking the orange button above.
On 1 December we are beginning our journey towards Christmas. We call this time ADVENT, a word from Latin meaning ‘coming’ and we call it so because it is a good name for the time to Christmas which is when we celebrate Jesus’ coming into the world.
1 December is Advent Sunday, when we will have Christingle in the afternoon. Christingle is also the start date of the Posada and we hope you will get a chance to have the figures of Mary, Joseph and the donkey in your house for one night!
Today was Pentecost and we made crowns of flames to go with the story.
We had lots of them and they weren’t all the same, but only Lucy stayed long enough to model one for the website – we believe there may have been cake waiting somewhere…
In our All Together Sunday service today we heard about UNITY. The prayer chain in the picture was made by putting many strips together into one piece, and the loops had names on them of all the people in the church.
But the funniest bit was when Teresa tried to get the duvet into its cover by herself. It was to show how you cannot do everything on your own – not even being a Christian.

Today we are starting our Behind the Organ page all over again, because it’s EASTER, and Easter is when all things are made new :)!
We had our Easter Workshop today. We did lots of different activities.
We made an Easter Garden with real flowers
And then we had loads of craft
And also Bible story telling about Easter in between
And a pretty good party at the end!
Salt & Light
Just imagine if we were like salt and light and everything we touched would be better – that is exactly what Jesus said we should try to be!
