Deep Mid-Winter drawing near,
Darkness in our Garden here - -
One small flame yet bravely burns
To show a path which ever turns.
Earth, please bear us as we go,
Seeking Light to send a-glow:
Branches green and moss and fern,
Mark our path to trace each turn.
Brother animals, teach us too
To serve with patience as you do.
We walk with candle toward the Light
While Earth awaits with hope so bright:
In the Light which finds new birth
Love may spread o'er all the Earth.
Deep Mid-Winter drawing near - -
May Light arise in our Garden here.
Please join us for a small quiet Advent Garden Festival
When: Friday 7th December at 11:00 am
Where: The Church of the Ascension.
We will have a very special story, some singing and a snack.
Please arrive at 10.45. You may enter the church hall as usual, but quietly, whilst the drop-off playgroup have their turn before us. We, Acorns parent and Child group will start at 11 am – right after Playgroup's celebration – and we hope as many families as possible can come and join us. This is a free event for all. There will be a puppet play and song singing, after which we´ll share some biscuits and hot drinks. Some of these will be prepared in advance during our sessions or on Thursday afternoon by the leaders. Parents are welcome to contribute with cakes, biscuits, special diet recipes and alternative to hot chai and apple juice carton donations on the day of the festival. Thank you!
On the day, please make sure your children are not wearing loose and long floaty clothing that might cause them any risk to safety, as we will have tea lights lit around the setting.
Please also kindly contribute with a bunch or bag of greenery during these previous days to the event to add to the magic of it.
Please note that there will be no sessions in or outdoors on Friday.
We look forward to seeing you there.
The Acorns Team.
