Since we started back after the summer, KS2 children have been meeting after each 0930live! to watch a short video connected with that week’s theme. Anecdotally, this seems to be helping to reinforce the story and message. The session is very relaxed but often ends with a few of the children staying back to discuss issues in more depth. We leaders are constantly reminded of the need to give space for discussions to arise naturally!
Six children have already played with the main band to lead us in a worship song and there are more planning to join to play some carols in the December 0930live! It’s lovely to encourage them with their playing and for them to gain an experience of playing with others and leading worship.
Toys and Gifts
0930live! held its Toys and Gifts service in late November. This year the toys are going to a charity DEBRA that supports children with a devastating skin disease, EB. In addition, food and toiletries will be donated to the local food bank.
Our Nativity service this year is at 10.45am on 21st December and all children are very welcome to take part.
Andrea organised a brilliant evening in October to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War. 13 young people from Frodsham Methodist Church prepared and served a meal using recipes from the time of the First World War. Many people tasted a main course trio of Lentil Curry, Beef and Vegetable Stew, followed by a dessert of Apple Crisp (nowadays called Apple Crumble) and Eggless Fruit Cake. A selection of items from the first world war were on display including a Bible and medals belonging to a soldier from the war, plus letters written home during the war. Towards the end of the evening everyone sang songs from this era. The oldest person lit a single candle in remembrance and the young people read details about the war and the poem In Flanders’ Fields.
The young people worked hard as a team and created an enjoyable evening.
