Alton Webteam: December 2015
Service after School in November.
On Thursday 12 th November a kindly group of helpers parents clergy and children arrived for the monthly SAS. This is a lovely opportunity for all to gather and discuss, "make and do" sing and reflect on one of the wonderful stories in the bible.
This time it was Creation and David had a excellent array of props to act the story out. There were many willing helpers, sheets for night, day and the earth, branches, paper cut outs of the sun moon stars and fish!!!
There was then a song and prayer led by Andrew and then the children went excitedly on their way to decorate biscuits, make bird feeders, mini flower arrangements, leaf rubbing and just be together and ENJOY!
Thank you to Sarah B and all the team for enabling this excellent time together after school.
