Good to be back!
0930live! finally started back recently after a very long summer break. It was so good to meet up and share each other’s news. All the children had started new classes and, in some cases, new schools. There were new jobs, interests and a very new baby! Our first theme was from Matthew 6: 25-34, ‘Do not worry’ and we explored how we may react when we’re worried, what Jesus said about how God cares for each of us and knows our needs and how we can put it into practice.
We have planned several parables from Matthew’s Gospel for the services before Christmas. Each one is as relevant as ever to our lives today: the parable of the sower, the unforgiving servant, the workers in the vineyard and the wedding feast.
Harvest – 28th September
This year 0930live! have been asked to decorate the church for Harvest. Flowers and vegetables will be enthusiastically and creatively incorporated into decorations on Saturday 27th September 10-12 noon. The more the merrier on that day…
There are now nearly 40 children, from babies to 18 years, who regularly attend 0930live! Wow, no wonder the Hall after the service can feel so energised! We really want all our children to gain as much as possible from coming to church, and also to be involved. So we have started some groups to meet after the service where the theme can be explored further. Young Minds (Year 6+) will continue to meet with Simon on the 2nd week, sometimes they will be discussing that week’s theme, or maybe preparing material for the following service. KS2 children (Juniors) will meet each week to watch a short video followed by discussion. There will also always be a
craft activity available for the younger children.
We are starting a young band for anyone who has achieved Grade 1. This will meet on the 4th Sunday after the service – all are very welcome to come along. We also hope to start a young singing group and are planning to get the adults singing for Christmas too.
Watch this space…!
