This Week in the Parish

October 8th, 2018

Light Party: It was a real joy to welcome so many folk to our ‘Light Party’ on Wednesday evening! Some 54 of us enjoyed the usual ducking for apples, doughnuts of strings, all-age team games, glass-painting and sparkler time outside, as people were preparing to leave. It was good to see the video about the origins of Halloween, and to be reminded of the way that Jesus’ Light always triumphs over darkness. We were very grateful to Nicki Brennan for all her wonderful toffee- and chocolate apples and amazing cup-cakes. Many thanks indeed to all those who came & volunteered, and helped to create a lovely atmosphere for our guests, many of whom were with us for the first time.
