16th of December & our Christmas really begins to take shape

17 December 2018

The third Sunday in Advent was our annual Gift Service. Once again this year’s donations are being passed on to Leeds Home Start, the local branch of a national charity whose staff and volunteers help families with young children deal with the many challenges they face.

However, for our 5 to 11 year olds in Pulse their part in the build up to Christmas was very much a hands on experience as Ann Kapolio led the group through the Bethlehem story.

With a real Angel holding a “real baby Jesus,” two hastily recruited shepherds and a more scriptural angel who came fully equipped with a heavy duty battery powered torch all that was left was for the children to employ their finest method acting skills and the scene was set. 

Next Sunday, at 10.30am is of course our Crib Service and the invitation is there to come dressed as a nativity character. However, don’t worry if you’re clean out of gold, frankincense and myrrh or you haven’t a suitably shepherdy dressing gown because we’re planning on raiding the Rewind costume cupboards and providing a full rack of carefully selected outfits.
