Busy Bees

The Busy Bees Leaver's Service for the end of the school year, when those leaving to move-on to 'Big School' was held on July 20th and was most successful. It was led by Cheryl Govier who is the Children's Family worker from St Bart's, who will come across the children again in the church primary school, when they re-open in September. She was enthusiastic to engage with the children in a dramatized version of the story of Jesus walking on the water to meet Peter in the boat and reassured the chldren leaving, not to be afraid of the change. 

For the first time the congregation topped over 100, a record. The children sange and did the actions to the songs very well to the enjoyment of the parents, families and church members present. The children leaving each recieved a goody bag with a book to help them and their parents and a certificate. Afterwards the whole congregation moved into the hall for light refreshments and fellowship.   ... Ted Gaskell
