………is for Parents/Grandparents or carers with babies and toddlers run by members of our Mothers’ Union Branch at Pakefield. We meet with Teddy Edward on the 1st Wednesday of the month in church, from 1.30-3.00pm. We have a story from the Bible, sing some songs, play with toys and whizz around on the trikes! We enjoy snacks and the adults have a cup of tea or coffee.
OUR OCTOBER MEETING
Although few in number, we managed to still raise the roof with our BIG AMEN at the end of prayers. We said special prayers for Bob and Christine as they move away and also for Sheila who had undergone an operation and for her swift recovery.
It had been Harvest Sunday and John Green from Tearfund preached the sermon and Roz related what he said. Tearfund helps people in poverty to plan for a better future and he gave an example of a poor person who owed some money but all she had was a small amount of oil left in her larder. She found some pots and went to her neighbours and they helped to fill the pots so that she could sell them, pay back the money she owed and provide food for her family. Roz had hidden some pots around the church and Sidney and Faith went off to find them, with Lila trotting after them. They all found some pots.
It had been Sidney’s birthday so we sung the birthday song to him – he is now two!
Then a big surprise; Simon produced the biggest parcel you ever did see, the children helped unwrap it. Inside was a large plastic box with pictures of teddies all round AND it was on wheels so it will be very handy for all our musical instruments and toys. Of course, our first song had to be “The Wheels on the Bus”. Refreshments followed and then playtime.
We bears (and helpers) look forward to our next meeting on 1st November, Pakefield Church, 13.30 hours. If you haven’t been before, do come, you would be most welcome.
No meeting in August but a very special one on 6th September as we say farewell to Bob. Not only is he good at prayers but he is our Chief Rocker of Babies. Although some schools are starting their new term during that week, the times may be staggered so perhaps some of our past members may be able to come with their mums so we can say the biggest A…M…E…N — EVER!
…to send him on his way in our special style !
