Latest Poppy Update
The ‘poppy putting together’ sessions have been extremely well attended and we are nearly there with the poppies on sticks, wreaths and nets ready to be put in place. Just one more session to go – please come along on Sunday 28 October at CMC between 15.00 and 17.00.
It promises to be an amazing display, tribute and act of Remembrance by lining Main Street with these poppies along the Parade Route of the Uniformed Organisations for Remembrance Day 2018 (Sunday 11 November).
Placing poppies along Main Street – Thursday 8 November, during the day, from 09.30 at St Giles.
We will need a big group of willing volunteers to help install the wreaths, nets and garlands into place along Main Street on Thursday 8 November. Please put this in your diary and come along and help if you are able.
Removing poppies from Main Street. It has been agreed that the poppies will remain in place until Sunday 18 November. So we would really appreciate as many people who are able to help take the wreaths, netting and garlands down. Then we can wash and dry the poppies before transforming them into blankets and dolls that are sent to needy situations in the world.
From the Poppy Project Group – Avrial, Tricia, Jo-Anne and Rev Julia

Holiday Club 2018
Summer might seem a long time ago now but, before everyone forgets those long warm days, here’s a short report on this year’s holiday club.
For a week at the end of July, Holiday Club ministered to around 100 children or families. More than 50 volunteers of all ages volunteered their time. There were three holiday club strands: Scramblers (pre-school children), Trekkers (infant aged children) and Trailblazers (junior school children). All children explored stories about Jesus as told in Matthew’s gospel. Scramblers was run as an entirely outdoor event. Trekkers and Trailblazers followed Scripture Union’s “Mega Makers” programme in church, helped by a life sized “Mega Machine”.
Everyone had an amazing time during a week packed with exciting opportunities for the children to learn about Jesus whilst having lots of fun. Many thanks to all those who helped in so many different ways – designing and creating the marvellous set, running all the events and providing refreshments during the week.
