Sunday 7th

Thankyou to all the children who came to church last Sunday and helped put the Wise Men in our stable under the altar. They do look splendid don’t they!

Rev Nadine Rose explained that the arrival of the Wise Men marked a new beginning for them, just as the New Year is a new beginning for us. She asked how many of us had made New Year resolutions, and how many had managed to keep them so far.

With the help of three other voices we heard a poem about three children who had made New Year resolutions. The first and second had made lots of resolutions but then struggled to keep them. The third child made just one – to do a good deed every day – and she kept it up all year. Nadine explained this was because she kept it simple and manageable. More importantly though, over time the good deeds she did started to transform her community. Little by little we CAN make a difference. Nadine told us that actions often speak louder than words, so she challenged us all to follow this example.


Carol Service – Monday 11th

Due to the current weather conditions and also those forecast for tomorrow,

The Mandeville School has had to cancel the Christmas carols and readings which was due to happen on Monday 11th.

The decision was not taken lightly but the safety of the children remains the top priority for the school.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Park Life Cafe – 4th November

Our next café in the park is on 4th November 10.30-12.30. This time there will be a home produce market stall and we are asking for contributions to this. Do you make jam, or cakes or anything else that we can sell? we also need you to come on the day and buy ! There will be refreshments and a children’s craft table as usual. It will also be a good opportunity to find out more about our annual Advent posada. We are putting together a display about the posada from previous years and this will be on show for the first time at the café.

Please put 4th November in your diaries as well as 9th December for our Christmas café.
