Our next First Sunday Thing (on 6th December) will be on St Nicolas' Day. Nicolas is the Patron Saint of Children. So one of the things we will be doing is discovering what the Children's Society does. This will be an opportunity to hand out their candle shaped collecting boxes to be brought back a month later when the following First Sunday Thing (on 3rd January) will include a Christingle Service; it is the Children's Society which popularised Christingle in England partly as a fund raising activity. St Nicolas', Great Coates will also be holding a Christingle Service there at 4.00 p.m. on Saturday 12th December.
