Service After School

Home » News » Service after School

We had a great time last month at Service After School (SAS) at both St Lawrence Church and All Saints Church. The theme in November was Remembrance. Children, younger siblings, parents, grandparents and volunteers all enjoyed learning about Bassets 'Peace babies' that were created as a celebration of the end of WW1. We also enjoyed eating a few jelly babies too! We sang about peace and thanking God for peace and then constructed some wonderful crafts and played some games. We even had an oil and water experiment this month! Thank you to our dedicated team of volunteers that always create such fabulous activities for everyone to make and do.

Please come and join us for our Christmas SAS at St Lawrence Church on Thursday 13th December or at All Saints Church on Wednesday 12th December, we'd love to see you.

We are always looking for volunteers to help make this an enjoyable and special time for everyone. So, if you would like to tell a story, lead a song, game or craft activity, at either Church please contact us. (Keren — altonschoolsministry@gmail.com or contact me at the parish office)

So there...

Dear Friends,I am sure that we are grateful for the beautiful spring weather that we have enjoyed this week. It has given us much to be thankful for in this time of uncertainty and anxiety as our daily lives have in many ways been turned upside down.A hymn that brings me reassurance and comfort is:Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,There is no shadow of turning with Thee;Thou...
