Our Christmas Lunches and Bazaar were a great success. Thank you to everyone who supported us and our very special thanks go to all the organizers and helpers beforehand and on the day. A cheque for £500 has been sent to the "Special Appeal for the Iain Rennie Hospice at home and the balance to Chapel funds.
Once again our Carol Service was one of the highlights of our year. The Sunday School presented a play entitled "The Real Christmas" which was written by one of our young people Alex. Set in "Scroogeville" it told of a grumpy shopkeeper who overcharged all the customers and threw one out because he was odd and different. This particular customer didn't know what Christmas was about and hadn't heard of Jesus. Upset because he was not liked he stole other peoples presents but he was tracked down by an angry mob. In the midst of all the angry shouting a child taught them all the meaning of Christmas with this message:
Christmas is Gods love
For people on earth
The day that we celebrate
The play then ended with the traditional Nativity scene. Thank you and congratulations to all the Sunday School members and staff.
February Lunches will be served on the 10th from 12 noon until 1.30 pm and the charity to be supported will be Northall Age Concern.
March Lunches will be on the 10th from 12 noon and the charity on this occasion will be the Bethany Trust.
A warm welcome awaits you to join us at our lunches.
A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY; FRIDAY 4th of MAY. We are delighted to announce that Mr Len Rawle will be paying a return visit to our Chapel to entertain us with an evening of light music on his Yamaha Concert Organ. Once again this will be a joint promotion between Northall Age Concern and our Chapel with shared proceeds.
