Latest news from Xplorers:
Our adult supporters were greeted by the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread as they arrived to join us at 4:45 on the 2nd. of October.
We had been celebrating harvest by exploring the story of Ruth and as part of our activities had ground some wheat and made various shapes from dough which Hester had very kindly baked for us; hence the wonderful smell. The youngest group made another colourful frieze, sowing fields with pulses and other materials, which they had glued onto paper for their harvest crops. The middle group drew their hand prints onto coloured card and after talking about the story of Ruth wrote some of their ideas onto the prints which were hung on a large branch at the front of the church. The senior group made “leaves” to write their thoughts on and added them to the tree. It was a very hectic but happy afternoon and the refreshments were very welcome.
Peter and a number of the Ukulele band joined for refreshments the Prayz Time and again led us in a rousing rendition of our “hymn”. The Xplorers would like to thank all those who help during the activities, those who donate materials and last but not least all who come and support us by their presence; we would love more of you to join us at 4:45 to see what the young people get up to and to share our tea and buns.
The two friezes were taken to the Hall for display at the Parish Lunch to show more friends what kind of things the group does.
