All Age Christmas service & Carols by Candlelight

All Age Christmas service.

The two plays 'Jerusalem News' & 'Shepherds Story' performed by 10 of the pilgrims were excellent & much appreciated by the good congregation of mums, dads, leaders and brothers & sisters. Two former pilgrims delighted us with solo pieces on the flute & oboe & another read the shepherds story from Luke's gospel.

Mike Hencher in his well illustrated talk reminded us of a line in the carol 'O little town of Bethlehem' where we ask Jesus to be "born in us today"- make it our simple & sincere prayer this Christmas.

Carols by Candlelight.

We had a varied program of bible readings & topical stories brought to us by 7 different people. The soft light from the candles added a special ambience to the favourite carols we sang.

The  overall number of 50 to the both events encouragingly exceeded our expectations.

Six of the Pilgrims group have just come home - exhausted - from  the Tom Roberts Adventure Centre. We had marvellous weather, superb food and a MISSION IMPOSSIBLE theme for the talks in the evening. Dave Farrants came down each evening to supervise the technical side and make sure the PowerPoint presentations worked and a good time was had by all.

If any others would like to come next year, it will be the same week, just before the August Bank Holiday.   Saturday 16 - Wednesday 20 August 2014.  There will be a poster and application form available later in the year.  The more the merrier!

Sunday 6:30pm

Next Sunday we welcome Rev Michael Bennett back to Dymock to take our service.  His time in Dymock was appreciated by all and he really loved it too.
Now he is retired he tells me he is speaking in many churches all over the Gloucester area.  So why not come and hear him?
Victor and Ruth Newman are away in the Lakes at the Keswick Convention and we wish them a well-earned rest and the continuance of this great weather.

Hi, this is Mike Hencher.  Sorry for the lack of information abou the Chapel.  I was preaching in the USA two months ago and picked up a kidney disease and my body blew up with fluid to make me look like the Mitchelin Man!

Last Monday, the Pilgrims group and their parents, 52 of us, met for a BBQ and games evening down at the Tom Roberts Adventure Centre that the Chapel is very involved with.  It was a great evening - super food, lovely weather and it was super to see Rev Michael Bennett again who very boldly taught us a song and got us to sing it as a round - just about.

Pilgrims will begin again in September.  By the way quite a number of the Pilgrims are coming to camp from August 17 - 21 at TRAC.   If there are any more youngsters who would like to come let us know, we have room for a few more.
