Interviews in early September
- As in previous years we supported Operation Christmas Child and filled a total of 86 Shoe Boxes with gifts for Children Overseas who otherwise would have received nothing at Christmas.
- We had an enthusiastic and thoughtful response to the challenge of the Mickleover Churches Together Christmas Tree Trail with 14 church groups decorating a great variety of Christmas Trees which were on display around the church during December. Mickleover Primary school classes came to us on 17th November, watched a video and made the decorations for our main Christmas Tree and returned in December for a story and a viewing of all the Christmas Trees.
- Our Celebration of Light in October attracted around 30 children who had a brilliant time together, with games, crafts snacks and a magician.
- Another very busy Advent started with a Christmas lunch for those associated with the church who live alone. Spark to a Flame looked at what our preparation should be for the coming of Christ at Christmas and how other “Christmas” activities can get in the way our preparations. Over 85 people attended our Christmas Messy church where we enacted the Christmas story and looked at its meaning for us, before doing craft work and having a meal together. The children’s organisations, including Go Fish, Playgroup, Little Micklers, Girl’s Brigade, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers all had their own special services to celebrate and remember Christmas in their own way. Over the days leading up to Christmas we had the Sunday School Nativity Service on the Sunday morning and the Church Candlelit Carol Service in the evening led by Rev Janet Jackson. There was a Christingle service on Christmas Eve which was well attended, particularly by young families who would not normally come to Sunday services. The Midnight Communion was led by Rev Janet Jackson, and Phil Royle led the Christmas Day family service. It was a busy time, but it was good to see so many people preparing themselves for Christmas.
- Corinne, our Children & Families worker, together with Phil Craythorne made the February half term Activity Days a real triumph with over 80 children attending over the 3 days. The title – SKYHIGH – looked at the adventure of finding a True Hero in our lives. The children, adult volunteers and young helpers enjoyed a truly inspiring time together.
- As Easter approaches we are preparing for an Easter Experience event at church, again led by Corinne where families, on the Our Mickleover Bunny Hunt can drop in over the week following Easter Sunday to explore different ways of experiencing the Easter story. Ecumenical Lent courses are running in Mickleover and being held at our church on 7th and 10th March. Ecumenical Holy week prayers, the Good Friday act of witness and Easter breakfast will all form part of our preparation for Easter Day.
- Following the success of our celebration of light in October a Pentecost event for the same age range of children is being planned for May. It was felt that it was too long to wait until October for another event of this kind!
- We now have confirmation or the probationer minister who will be coming to us in September and some stewards and circuit stewards have met with him. He was very enthusiastic and impressed with the buildings, facilities and range of activities we have on offer to the communities which we serve. We look forward to working with him and supporting him through his probationary years.
