Christmas 2016 Wittersham Church


Prayer bubbles at the Christmas service.  
Many adults as well as children enjoyed blowing 
prayer bubbles after the service.

Roving Nativity.
We really loved taking a roving Nativity around some of the roads of Wittersham before Christmas.    


We took two lambs and a Shetland pony as well as juice and sweets for the children and mulled wine and mince pies for the adults.    We had many supportive comments like “Thank you, you have brought Christmas to us, we really feel that Christmas is here now”    



Plough Sunday
We celebrated the first of four rural festivals in January.  Farmer Ed and Farrier Paul brought the plough into the church which was then blessed.   Many farms rely on animals for their livelihood so the Lovejoy family kindly brought two lambs into church and a prayer was said for all farm animals.  We started with breakfast and the service was followed by a ploughman’s lunch.
