I’d like to start off with an apology for not posting last week, time escaped me, but here I am with 2 weeks update. So both weeks have seen us preparing for events we have put on, Bingo, All Age Worship and a Superhero Party, oh and we’ve been paper mache’ing a chicken wire Virgin Mary into a chicken wire shepherd for Holy Trinity’s nativity.
So Bingo! This week Fr.Mark joined us, numbers were a little down compared to last time but this gave us an opportunity to chat to those whom came and engage with them more. It was a fun afternoon and all those who came seemed eager to come again which is great. Our next bingo afternoon is Tuesday 11th November, 2:30pm – 3:30pm.
For All Age Worship this week we held Secret Church. The Lewis Chapel was closed off, blacked out and we shut the main entrance to St.Mary’s, ushering everyone in through the side door. Sam led us in a time of reflection and worship, thinking about what it would be like to be a persecuted Christian today. It was a very powerful morning and really opened all our eyes up to what our fellow brothers and sisters face today. If you would like to know more about Secret Church you can click here.
On Friday (31st) we had a Superhero party, similar to bingo numbers weren’t as we hoped but we still had a good time and have some ideas of how to improve things for next year. I think the highlight for me was when the leaders wrapped Fr.Mark up as a mummy.
Things are quietening down at the moment but will be sure to pick up again as we get closer to Christmas. I’m off to university tomorrow for a week so leaving the boys to it. Sam will be back next week to fill you (and I) in on what’s been happening.
Soli Deo Gloria – To God alone be the glory. Amen.
Peace and Blessings
