Preparing for 4th January.

A small group has met to plan our first First Sunday Thing.

We want to do something more like our Last Saturday Thing (we ought to start a Blog about that!) and Children's Activity Mornings than our old Family Services. And we want to do something for all ages and not just children or families.

We thought we'd tackle things this way once and then get feed back before planning for February.

There will be a simple said Communion service in the Lady Chapel at 9.30 a.m. for those want to attend. Then people will be organising lifts and setting up the church.

Coffee and other refreshments will be served from 10.15 a.m. as we welcome those who arrive.

Soon after 10.30 a.m. people will be invited to move with their refeshments to any one of six areas of the church to watch or take part in activities going on there.

One group will be preparing to present the story of the Three Kings, another to make an art display of it, and another to study what it means.

One group will be hanging requests for prayer on a Christmas tree, another working at a piece of music, and another finding out about what St Michael's does sponsoring a student in South America.

Soon after 11.00 a.m. we plan to pool all of these activities in a twenty minute act of worship.
