Some of the ladies had a cleaning session! all the toys came out of the cupboard and were given a good clean and disinfected. All in good time for the new term.
The stones went out!
Lots of children foundthe stones that were hiding around the island. We heard that some of these were shared with children at the school.
Each week the children will light a candle in
the Advent Wreath.
We will Remember!
On Remembrance Sunday we had a special service to remember and to honour those from Britain and from Commonwealth countries who fell during two world wars.
We joined the national opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those who continue to defend our freedoms and protect our way of life.
Flowers were prepared to decorate the hall.
The children made a beautiful display during the service and this has been hung up in the school hall for all the school children to enjoy during the week.
Our church leaders led the Service of Remembrance.
The school children have been writing prayers on the paper doves that are now displayed in the school hall. This is part of a project with Rochester Cathedral. In the New Year the Cathedral will be hosting an art exhibition featuring thousands of these doves flying in the ceiling of the nave.
Reverend Catharina Olsson Gisleskog
leads Holy Communion
on the second Sunday
of each month.
During our services the children have their own activity. We looked at the story of the Good Samaritan and thought about how we could be a good neighbour. We looked in the mirror and talked about how we could show love to our neighbours.
We had a very special weekend when we celebrated the Christening of 2 of our very youngest church members. It is always a special occasion to welcome new little ones into the congregation.
If you would like to consider having your child Christened do get in touch with us. We would be delighted to hear from you.
Jubilee stones Did you find one?
We painted 300 of these very special stones to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. They were hidden across the island. Did you can find one when you were out enjoying the sunshine over the Jubilee weekend?
Scout camp - April 22nd - April 24th
Several of our children attended Scout camp at Buckmore Park. For some it was their first experience of camping, but it was great they reported back! They managed to break the world record for the number of sleeping bags laid out end to end. The previous total had been 234 sleeping bags and the new record is 278!
Several families enjoyed themselves at Spring Harvest in Skegness. This is a Christian event that makes space for God to do his awe inspiring work in everyone. It's the space for you to find Spiritual refreshment, hear God's voice and be inspired to go back to your streets, villages, towns and cities to make a difference.
Spring Harvest is the perfect holiday packed full of inspiration, it's the boot camp for the church; equipping the church for action.
Christmas stones: the stones are being painted. A team are in full production mode painting this year's stones. Look out for the next characters in the Christmas story. Coming soon!
