Church Away Day: 15th September 2018

Church Away Day

Saturday 15th September: We gathered early morning and started our day with a breakfast of warming bacon butties, before spending time together to discuss our journeys of faith.

We were joined by Dr Sarah Holmes who is part of the Baptism Initiative - Three Steps to Christenings. Sarah was interested to share our experiences of baptism and was delighted to be invited to join us on our Away Day and take part in our discussions. During the discussions, the children enjoyed some craft activities, but also contributed their ideas and ways in which they, too, can welcome families when they arrive at baptism services.

Following a bring and share lunch, we set off for the Wirral Tram Museum. They had a pirate theme for the day and the volunteers, including our very own David Corey, were there to greet and welcome us. There was plenty to see and explore, but the highlight was a ride on one of the trams. It wasn't only the children who were excited by the experience, we all were! Norman Hope was determined to enjoy the ride and, with assistance, was able to do just that, too. You will see from the photographs that we all had an amazing and fun time.

And so, back to church, and a tea of fish and chips and Chinese take-away, followed by a screening of one of our Vicar Graham's favourite animated films, KUNG FU PANDA. It had been a long but satisfying day, spent with members of our church family and, as we went home, tired but happy, we hoped that it won't be too long before we can organise another Away Day for us all.

Child Friendly Church Award Celebration

Our service began with an invitation - played out on the organ and led by the choir - to "Come on and Celebrate" and that's just what we all did!

The school hall was packed with eighty five adults and thirty five children, as our extended church family joined together for the presentation of the Child Friendly Church Award.
