The week from our Administrator's Desk
Christmas Market is coming
After the amazing success of nearly 300 people at the Christingle Sunday Funday, we have hit the season running!
This Sunday there are 8am and 10am Communion Services at St. Leonard’s both followed by coffee, and a chance to top up your Christmas card purchases, there might even be an Advent Calendar or two at a reduced price.
Sunday evening at 7pm is the Candlelit Carol Service at St. Leonard’s followed by Mulled Wine and Mince Pies in the Centre. It’s a great way to get you into the Christmas Spirit and a truly lovely service.
Next Saturday there is Blue Christmas if you prefer a quiet reflective space, and on the Sunday Wootton St. Lawrence are holding their annual Christmas tree Festival in the church followed by The Big Sing - with lots of Christmassy songs, poems etc!
Next Sunday we will be sharing Christmas Lunch as the Church family. All are welcome, no set charge, just a donation. Please sign up before 6pm on Tuesday 12th - letting us know any dietary requirements too. Soft drinks will be provided, but feel free to bring something stronger!
Dinner will be served after the 10am coffee time, so about 12:15.
Christmas jumpers, headbands, earrings etc, all very welcome for a time of food, fun and festive cheer!
Lots more info about services including the Flashmob Nativity (!) in the Welcome Sheet ..
It’s been a busy week in the office and you can tell Christmas is on the way! Lots of Holly has been added to the church decorations and everything is looking very festive. Ben has already worn several of his Christmas Jumper collection, and there are many more to come (gulp!)
Anyway, I’m off to get all arty and creative this weekend, which isn’t really my forte, but maybe I’ll discover a hidden talent, or maybe I’ll just get very messy!
Whatever your plans are, stay safe and warm…
