Cafe Church, 12th January, 2020.

Our first service in the village hall, due to the church alterations, was on the subject of Help. We used the book called ‘ The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse’ by Charlie Mackesy and looked at the quotes and drawings. Two of the favourites were ‘ The boy asked the horse, “What was the bravest thing you’ve ever said?” “Help” said the horse’ and “Asking for help isn’t giving up” said the horse, “It’s refusing to give up”. We had a Bible passage on the centurion asking Jesus for help and heard about asking for help from Celia and ‘Coming Apart at the Seams’ from Jane. Everyone joined in with personal experiences and how we can help by up-cycling. Our minister in training, Jim, who is with us for 2 months, led the prayers and we finished with The Grace and singing along with The Hollies, ‘He ain’t Heavy, He’s my Brother’.

Meanwhile, back in church we are all covered up for the builders.
