CHRISTINGLE SERVICE 2nd Dec 2018

 

After a successful Christmas tree festival on the Sat 1st of December, we held our annual Carol Concert and Christingle Service the following day,.

This was celebrating its 50th year benefitting The Children's Society.

A packed church was led by Milnrow Band for the Carols then our organist Garth played for the Christingle .

Everyone received an Christingle i.e an orange with a candle.

A circle was formed and candles lit, the lights switched off and the Christmas Carol "Away in a Manger' was sung .

After the service mince pies, and mulled wine was served, a really magical afternoon enjoyed by all.

HARVEST FESTIVAL 2018

 

ON THE WEEKEND OF 5th-7th of OCTOBER  we celebrated our HARVEST FESTIVAL

OUR SCHOOL CHILDREN, and others from LOCAL NURSERIES attended CHURCH on Friday, bringing food gifts, in a SPECIAL YOUNG PERSONS SERVICE.

 Early on Sunday morning prior to our morning service a HARVEST BREAKFAST was provided, with hot sausage and bacon sandwiches. As you can imagine this went down very well .

During the subsequent HARVEST FESTIVAL service (led by Reverend Hilda Wild ) the congregation presented their gifts.

Instead of the usual Sermon the older SUNDAY SCHOOL CHILDREN  performed a play on GENEROSITY.

After which  the young ones acted out the story of the LITTLE RED HEN which we all enjoyed .

 Soup and a bread roll after the service provided the perfect end to a lovely HARVEST SERVICE with friends and family 

ALL CONTRIBUTIONS WILL BE GIVEN TO THE BOOTH CENTRE MANCHESTER AND TO OUR LOCAL ROCHDALE FOOD BANK
