We hope you all had a good Christmas – at Ellerdine we welcomed family and friends at our candlelight Christingle Service on Christmas Eve. This year we were treated to a poem about a snowman by five year old Lilly dressed for the part with a top hat and carrot nose. Then we had a puppet play of the Christmas Story by Harry and Joe with narration by mum Cathy.
We all joined in with carols old and new, and enjoyed a story about grumpy Badger’s Christmas. Finally our youngest member, Luke, dressed as one of Santa’s little helpers, assisted his sister and cousins in distributing the Christingles to everyone in the congregation. We all left feeling that Christmas had truly begun after sharing in the warmth of worship together.
