Lorna has just posted about our Annual bulletin. Yes, the boys were a great help, but it went off a bit late this year. What happened to August? Did we get anything done apart from a family holiday? Well, strangely, it was a great success. Looking at the month from more than the narrow commercial perspective, it was one of our best times. We held two holiday activity mornings for pre-teen children plus parents, which were runaway successes. They were begging for more! It was so satisfying to get across a literary theme through crafts and quizzes as well as book readings. More than 60 children were there which was fabulous. It was particularly nice to see many from non-Christian families. We were kindly allowed the use of the Chapel next door to give us the needed space, and had a great support team as well. Thanks everyone! We have a gallery of photos on our Facebook page. Remember you can view this even if you do not have a Facebook account.
The problem now is that we have probably made a rod for our own back for future holiday times, and left ourselves playing catch-up as we start the long run in to Christmas! But at least we do so feeling more fulfilled than ever.
