Starting Wednesday 7 March 2018
For young children of school age, in St Oswald’s Church during term time. Drinks and biscuits will be provided!
Led by one of the mums, the intention is to encourage young children to sing and to make occasional performances at Family Services. To help them grow in confidence, and to draw them closer into the Church family.
This is NOT a talent show, all you require is enthusiasm and a love of singing. If you have children or grandchildren who might like to join in with this new venture, please bring them along.
The season began by preparing the Christingles.
The RiCH* Christmas party involved some dressing up…
*RiCH = Refreshment in Church, where Bollington’s Secondary School pupils (Years Seven to Nine) are able to drop in on their way home from school for a drink and some home made cake…
There were some special visitors at the Praise and Play* Christmas Party
*Praise and Play is for pre-school children and babies & their parents and/or carers
More dressing up for the Crib Service on Christmas Eve…

A good time was had by all – despite the good old bad old British Summer weather outside. Face-painting, cake, bouncy castle, cake, hot dogs, cake,
raffle. And did I mention cake?
Our amazing interactive Schools’ Experience continues all this week! Members of our congregation are telling the Story of Moses with the enthusiastic help of children from three of our local primary schools! To give you a flavour of the unfolding drama, here is a selection of photos sent to us by their Head Teacher of some of the delightful children from Bollington St John who’ve clearly enjoyed their class visit today.
Beverley read out the story of Pentecost at our Family Worship service and the children enthusiastically re-created the “rushing mighty wind”.
The Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles as “tongues of fire.”
The church was laid out for a Craft Trail for children to follow the activities of the first Good Friday.
Gathering in the whole woolly flock from our Bollington Advent Sheep Trail!
Hallelujah! The sheep were safely gathered in tonight from all around Bollington! Thank you, innkeeper Bev and all your willing staff, for helping the children experience the timeless Christmas story in such a lively and engaging way! We heard the angels’ message loud and clear: “Do not be afraid!” Wishing everyone a very happy and holy Christmas and a joyous and peaceful New Year!
