Our 2015 Festival was a great success with more exhibitors, more visitors and more money raised than 2014. After making small donations to both churches to cover expenses we were able to give Welwyn Hatfield Community and Voluntary Services £600. A particular highlight, again, was the Jazz on a Summer’s Evening.
Looking forward to welcoming Act4 to our morning worship on Dec 7 when we will be collecting gifts and seeing their current assembly. This will be a lively family service that should get us all in the Christmas spirit.
At this month’s Messy Church session Johann and Elise introduced us to the lovely German custom of making and carrying lamps on St Martin’s day to commemorate Martin’s generous giving of half of his cloak to a poor man who had none. We also learned a traditional song about the saint.
It is exciting to see the new public access defibrillator in position on the outside of the church building. Many thanks to all who helped raise the funds and especially to the Brookmans Park Rotary Club without whom it would not have been possible.
