The group leaders reluctantly made a last minute decision to postpone the Xplorers on Sunday 3rd. February to the following weekend as the incoming power line to the church suddenly fused and there was no heating or lighting.
Scottish and Southern quickly mended the fault but this did not give sufficient time to get the church warm enough.
This was a disappointment as some families were away for the half-term weekend when Xplorers was rearranged on 12th February. The positive side being that three children visiting their grandmother’s house joined us and enjoyed the activities and Prayz Time.
Xplorers continued Joseph’s adventures and his given gift of being able to interpret his and other people’s dreams. We followed him to the end of his story when he was happily reunited with his brothers and father who joined him in Egypt. The puppets on sticks, made by the young people, depicting Joseph, the King, brothers, other characters and the cows! were happily presented from behind a screen as the accompaniment to Ken telling the story.
Our thanks go to the Mums for stepping in and helping with the activities and handing out teas, juice and cakes and to the Ukelele Band for the music.
