Easter Sunday 2006
He is risen, Alleluia
Pictures of the 10.30 family celebration service where everyone was free to express their joy with praise, clapping, flag waving, dancing and even party poppers!
Our first Christmas service (mainly for children) when a traditional Christinge is given to everyone. The modern Christingle consists of
an orange, representing the world
a red ribbon, tied round the orange representing the blood of Jesus
fruits and sweets, skewered on 4 cocktail sticks which are pushed into the orange representing God's good gifts - the fruits of the earth and the four seasons
a lighted candle, pushed into the centre of the orange representing Christ, the light of the world
Roly Bain (Vicar and Clown)
Rev Roly Bain travelled to Woodseats on Saturday 7th July to kick off a unique and memorable weekend of fun, faith and foolishness.
On a surprisingly sunny afternoon people streamed through the gates of Church House and onto the church field, stopping for a Pimms or cream tea before enjoying the various stalls - and then it was time for Roly's performance. Children & Adults were soon laughing as he jestered, juggled, slack-roped and created all manner of mahem.But it wasn't over ...
The fun continued in the evening hosted by the Foundation congregation with a Pie & Pea supper an amazing quiz and Roly delighting everyone with his unique style of story-telling. But it wasn't over ...
The aroma of bacon butties welcomed us to church on Sunday morning and after breakfast the worship began. It was a fun filled service - with our old frien Rev Roly. There was music singing fun prayer bubbles and lots more - and suddenly it WAS all over.
Roly was off on his travels again... to Wales then London then Perth Australia with the Archbishop of York. An unforgetable weekend
