Our congregation seems to have a number of November birthdays to celebrate and today we all gathered to sing Beryl a "Happy 90th Birthday" with a cake to add to our after service tea and coffee.
Gina and Arthur stepped in to take todays service at short notice and gave us a flavour of the "open the book" sessions that a group of people take into the local primary school. This week they took the story of Noah and the Ark to school and we had a repeat performance today. Noah was seen building the ark with a large mallet, adding the animals including two large toy tigers (one of whom refused to sit properly, loading the ark with food and letting the dove fly from the ark. Even the congregation were involved making the rain sound effects.
Todays coffee morning raised nearly £85 pounds for our own Chapel. A little thin today as a number of people had to miss the event but plenty of cakes and chat from those that were able to attend.
Whitacre Congregation is a vibrant mix of young and old who enjoy meeting for Sunday worship. Do come and join us.
