A year in pictures – Day 190

Church on the beach

It has been a gorgeous day today. Unusual really as we had our yearly church on the beach event. Most years it is drizzly and a bit manky but today it was gorgeous and hot and sunny.

Today we had a service on the beach with baptisms in the sea followed by a picnic.

The children have made the most of being together and playing in the sea. Lovely.

A year in pictures – Day 131

Bishop AdrianThis evening I went to a friend’s induction service at a local parish church.

It was brilliant to see him become a Rector, although the service was archaic, rather amusing in places and completely bizarre in others. I spent a good proportion of the evening wondering whether the Bishop of Dover’s staff came apart so he could pack it into a suitcase, and whether he carried his mitre in hand-luggage and if he got funny looks putting it through airport scanners.

Here is a photo of Rev Adrian in front of my favourite stained glass window in the church!

A year in pictures – Day 99

Messy ChurchThis morning I had to go back to the venue to help clear up some stuff. There was an amazing team and everyone did a brilliant job!

This afternoon I took the kids to Messy Church for their Easter Service. It was lovely and we had a fab time. The Little Miss was particularly pleased with her decorated Easter biscuit though!

2016 Project366 (Day 353)

Scratch NativityToday I took the kids to church and this morning it was the scratch Nativity.

As you arrive at church there is a giant dressing up box available and you are given the option of being a king, a shepherd or an angel or anything else they have stashed in there!

It always makes me laugh to see adults sitting in the congregation dressed like Wise Men (and women) and humble shepherds. I love this service. It makes me smile.

Here is a quick selfie snap taken in church yesterday.

2015 Project365 (Day 358)

ChristingleA busy Christmas eve cooking the turkey, making gravy and making the trifle.

Once The Mister had finished work we went to church for the Christingle.

Hilarious service involving an 8 foot orange. I mean what could possibly go wrong? Small children and fire for example. Nah! It’ll all be fine!

2015 Project365 (Day 347)

DIY NativityThe church I attend does a fantastic Nativity service every year.

It is s DIY Nativity and they try to get as many people as possible dressed up. Lots of the kids come dressed up and then as you go in through the doors it is entirely possible the you will end up dressed as a sheep or a king or something before you make it to your seat.

The Little Miss looked particularly wonderful as an angel but The Little Mister point blank refused to wear an amazing donkey costume we had for him!

Here are my niece and nephew worshipping the baby Jesus whilst dressed as donkeys. Marvellous.

2015 Project365 (Day 344)

Fallen angelOn Sunday church has a DIY Nativity and that means that everyone who wants to can turn up dressed as a character in the Nativity story. I was intending on going as Mary of course.

It would see that The Little Miss is not entirely happy with the suggestion of going as an angel.

Church on the beach

Today we had church on the beach with some baptisms in the sea.

It was a gorgeous day, the sun was shining and it was relatively warm.

The Little Mister had a brilliant time playing with his friends and here he is with his friend Ava taking a walk to the sea. Happy times.

2015 Project365 (Day 116)

26 April 2015

I took the kids to church this morning and the service was being led by Bryan, who until recently was a pilot for MAF.

He has a loft full of interesting and useless things such as a swordfish sword, a bow and arrow, his flight helmet, and various bits of planes. I have no idea how big his loft is and I have no idea how his wife puts up with all his ‘treasures’!

He also has a habit of teaching us bible verses by using pictograms and they seem to be getting longer and longer. Soon we will be able to completely wrap up the church in a seamless piece of paper!
