Today was an All Age Family service. The congregation had been invited to bring baptism certificates or other memories from their own Sunday School days. A few children and adults had brought in certificates and photos and even birthday cards sent to the youngsters. We talked about our individual happy memories of Sunday School.
Our next All Age Family Service will be on 4th August and we are encouraged to bring memories of holidays, perhaps churches or cathedrals or the great outdoors, where and when we have felt closer to God. We are also asked to think about creating memories for our current children which would sustain them throughout their lives as our memories have encouraged us. These ideas would be fed into the thinking group who are looking at Families and Young People.
