We had a memorable Christingle here last Sunday afternoon. So many people were involved – and not just human beings— in telling the story of the child in the manger. We would love to thank all of them but the list would be too long.

We must mention our children’s choir, and Jo and Sarah who trained them, Lesley, whose idea it all was, Bethany for a marvellous solo, – and all who did so much in the background.

This was our very first Puppet Nativity. I am sure there will be others.

We want to say a special thanks to the members of Slimming World, who provided the oranges and sweets this year and also helped to make the Christingles. Slimming World are also leading the way with donations to the Swindon Food Collective. We are having a hard time keeping up with the boxes and cans of food we have received from them this Christmas.
