Alive @ 10
ALIVE at 10 is on the 1st Sunday of every month, starting at 10 am, and lasts for about one hour.
It is an informal All-age Service with dramatised readings, sketches, creative prayer, and crafts for the children. There is no Communion at this service. Refreshments are served afterwards. We look forward to seeing you.
For further details, please contact the Parish Office on 0193 231274.
Services take place in the church with families sitting on chairs at the front as well as in the pews. All ages from the oldest to the youngest are invited and everyone is encouraged to take an active part in all aspects of the service – hymns, songs, prayers and a Bible story which is acted out by volunteers, children and adults, who are usually “dressed up” in some way – tea-towels are a popular form of head-dress!
Towards the end of the service one of the church candles is lit and children and adults are invited to offer a prayer either silent or audible, as they blow the candle out. Blowing out the candle has proved to be very popular with the youngest attendees!! After the service the children are invited to take part in a simple practical corporate activity which is recorded in our special Family
Praise memories book e.g. finger prints, sticking apples on the tree of life.
Refreshments are provided at the end of the service. We hope everyone could join in and contribute to this time of fellowship.
