………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 APRIL MEETING
Because we had new Teddy Edwardians at our meeting on the 4th April (Lana, Jude, Teddy and Edie), Roz introduced us, that’s me, Teddy Edward, and Little Ted and told them all about our Club after which we had prayers. It was a special meeting as previous members on holiday from school also popped in and it ended up one grand party.
Have you ever lost anything, say, a favourite toy, asked Roz, I know I have and it can be very upsetting as was the lady in Roz’s story. She had saved ten gold coins and she liked to count them. Sometimes her cat sat and watched. Roz actually had 10 gold coins and her cat (which was really Bagpuss a favourite cuddly toy when she was a child) sat watching her. The cat in the story jumped off the table and scattered the coins everywhere and this is what happened as our cat did the same, jumping on to Sheila’s lap and scattering the coins in the process. Luckily, the children quickly gathered them up but when we all counted them, and as in the story, there was only nine! We looked everywhere – had it rolled under a chair, was it under one of the babies on the rug, was it under Simon’s shoe? NO, it was under the cat sitting on Sheila’s lap! We were all very pleased as was the lady in the story when she discovered her missing coin under her cat.
Jesus was telling this story to illustrate how he looks for people who have been lost to him.
Roz had hidden some gold coins for the children to find, they were special as inside there was chocolate!
Toni – Lila’s mum – had a birthday in April and we sang the happy birthday song before we got out the noisy musical instruments, Simom had some action songs and then it was playtime and refreshments.
We meet again on the 4th May – Pakefield Church – 1.30 pm – 0-5 years, you would be made very 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 !
