Church

One of our local churches was short of singers for their 4pm service and they asked me if I would go and sing.

I thoroughly enjoyed it – it was a lovely laid back service and they provided food afterwards. Win win.

What made me smile the most though was that there were a couple of dogs in the building including the Vicar’s dog who just wandered in and out and when the door at the back was shut she just barked until one of her slaves let her in. It felt a little like the Vicar of Dibley.

Wonderful.

Day 350

Scratch Nativity

Today was the scratch nativity at church.

Always entertaining but seeing the vicar dressed as a donkey was a highlight for me.

Not sure where the giraffe appeared in the biblical telling either.

Day 343

Angels

Today the church launched their Angel project.

At some point this week about 600-700 knitted angels will be left around town for people to take home and hang up somewhere.

I love the idea that lovely angels which had been handmade with love will be hanging as part of people’s decorations for many years to come.

Day 337

The PosadaThroughout Advent Trinity church has something called The Posada.

Mary, Joseph and the donkey travel from home to home, trying to find somewhere comfortable to stay for the night.

This evening they stayed with us and they managed to find a car to help out with their transport situation.

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!
