Fun, laughter and learning at our 'Junior Heroes' Children's Christian Holiday Club!

Our school holiday club saw fifty children entertained for three mornings at The church on Oakwood. Each day we split into our three teams and enjoyed challenges such as making costumes from junk; being the first to wrap a team member in toilet roll; and building the highest tower that could hold a polo mint using nothing but sheets of paper and straws! There was music, games, crafts, Bible stories and learning about how Jesus is our superhero and how we can be 'Junior Heroes' by being inspired by what He did for us.

Congratulation to Rebecca on her Baptism at Pentecost

On the feast of Pentecost we celebrate the birth of the Church and the coming of the Holy Spirit. In the Acts of the Apostles it tells us that 3000 people were baptised on that day. It was therefore a perfect choice for one of our younger Church members to be baptised on this feast day. Rebecca has been attending the Church on Oakwood for over 2 years, and made the request for baptism herself. Rebecca's family and friends were there to support her decision and celebrate with her.

Thine be the Glory - Risen Conquering Son!

Our Easter celebrations were a truly joyous occasion for both congregations. Coincidentally (or by divine providence?) the Catholics began with the rousing hymn 'Thine Be the Glory' and the Morning Congregation ended their service with it. A testament to how the Easter story unites all traditions of the Church.
