All Age Worship 11th January

 2015-01-13 10.35.08
This Sunday’s service was led by Rev. Les Judd and was an all age worship service. The theme was ‘Spiritual Footwear’. We  enquired at the beginning of the year what experiences we may encounter and what spiritual footwear we might require. If our journey is easy we may require  sandals, if our way is tough, boots would be more appropriate. We hope the year will have some moments where we slip off our shoes, because we stand on holy ground.

We were pleased that members of the Boys and Girls Brigade where able to assist with the Reading and Dramatizations in the service. Also taking part were some people who had attended the Jammy Church on “Moses Crossing the Red Sea  ” the day before.

We were also able to celebrate the Achievements  of Members of the Boys and Girls Brigades as Badges were presented to them during the service, that they had gained over the last few months.

We were all given a Paper Footprint to take home with us so that we could reflect on aspects of the Service and the Christian Journey during the Week.
