Posada -


posadaMary, Joseph and Bonkey the donkey can stay in your home this Advent by using figures from your nativity set, dressing dolls or colouring templates. (Click on the names above for their templates or find one with all three HERE). 
Arrange a short virtual meet-up via Zoom or by phone to receive the Holy Family and then another one as you pass them on to their next hosts. It’s a great way to meet others from Church and reflect on the travels of Mary and Joseph during Advent.
Please sign up ASAP for a date HERE.

KiT 80Thurs 29 Nov @ 10.01

This Sunday we are experimenting (in preparation for our Christmas services) by streaming both services through YouTube.  This will mean that the link below will take you straight to our YouTube channel.  The BIG advantage is that if you have a Smart TV you will be able to watch the service on that.  The disadvantage is that you won't be able to message through Facebook, we think (unless you can message through the Facebook Event link - only time will tell . . .)  You can message through YouTube but if you are watching on a Smart TV you will need to do it on another device (phone, tablet or computer).  But please don't let that slight complication stop you - it would still be great to hear from you and build the online community! 

We would welcome any feedback about this switch over - whether it is better or worse for you - please email Helen.  Your feedback will help dictate what we do in the future so it is important to hear from you.

 A twitter post HERE from the Church of England showing a video of Imogen Whitehead (nee Hancock) playing the Last Post in St Martin's in the Fields Church last week for the Church of England's worship today.  We heard the same recording in our service this morning.  When you click on to it, the sound is muted - you'll have to turn up the volume to hear it.

This is what '20MinutestoPraiseGod'  looked like from the other side of the camera at rehearsal last night - what a lot of wires, but what fun we had this morning!

Tomorrow will be the first of our new service patterns for lockdown.

At 9.30am we have '20MinutestoPraiseGod'  click HERE for the link.  There are also some Activity Sheets HERE to follow up the theme, if anyone would like.  We are experimenting by streaming this through YouTube rather than Facebook.  This means that many people will be able to watch it on their TVs which make it easier.  You will also be able to join in the Live Chat! 

Please subscribe to our YouTube Channel HERE.
