An outdoor event, for children to explore the wonder of God’s creation, and reflect on what Advent means through outdoor experiences and activities, it will be a time to connect with the natural world, and listen to what God may be saying.
Time: 2pm-4pm, then following the first Wild Advent only, a short Christingle service in the Church with adults, to end the session finishing before 5pm. The second Wild Advent on 20 Dec will run from 2pm-4pm; no Christingle.
You will need to register for this event. Please contact catherinegraham5@btinternet.com, or nannaji@hotmail.co.uk
You will need warm, waterproof clothes for outdoor activities, wellies or suitable shoes, gloves, etc. We will be outside! It will be muddy! It might be wet! You may attend either or both sessions. Places are limited, so please register soon to avoid disappointment.
Parents leave their children with us, and collect them at 4pm. You are welcome to then stay on for the Christingle service at the end. (The Christingle is for the first session only.) We are a group of trained professionals and helpers, including teachers, headteachers and youth workers. Risk assessments have been carried out and all leaders are DBS checked and have had safeguarding training. There will be at least one trained first aider at each session. This is a Christian event, and will include children’s Christian worship.
