The Children's Society

The Children’s Society will be a focus of our attention at the next First Sunday Thing on 7th November. We have in mind to create a huge new covering for the altar decorated with pictures of children - ourselves and those the Children’s Society supports.

The Children’s Society is a Church of England foundation which makes a huge difference to our understanding and to the well being of many children. Often churches focus on its work at Christingle Services near Christmas - and we will be among them at our First Sunday Thing on 5th December.

For the First Sunday Thing in November we will be preparing for the Christingle Service at the First Sunday Thing in December. We will do this by finding out about the Children’s Society, by finding out about Christingles, by making our new altar cloth, and by giving out the Children’s Society candle shaped Christingle collecting boxes.
