Activities

School family services

Once a month the whole school attends a morning service in church, led by members of the congregation. These lively and interactive services are open to family and parishioners as well. Action songs, shadow puppets, drama and music making bring the gospel to life and introduce the children to the essential elements of Anglican worship.

Services this autumn:

Thurs 12th October - The Eucharist - New Testament story of The Last Supper

Thurs 9th November - The Eucharist - we will have a brief Agape meal to give the children first hand experience of some of the ritual associated with the service.

Thurs 14th December - Christingle

 

Toddler Group

Once a month the children from the School Nursery join members of the congregation for stories, songs and games.

 

Prayer meetings

Prayer is at the heart of the Christian life. Members of several denominations meet informally in someone's home to pray for the world, our community and individuals. All are welcome and prayer requests can be left in church on our Prayer Tree.

 

Open The Book

Coordinated by members of Christ Church, this is another activity which brings together people from different churches. The group runs a fortnightly assembly in the School, bringing bible stories to life through acting, singing and storytelling. Different classes also take part in the activity, increasing children's knowledge and understanding of the Old and New Testaments.

 

Baptism thanksgiving

We have a healthy number of babies born in the parish and are delighted to welcome them and

their families in Baptism. We like to hold regular  Thanksgiving parties where families who have had a baptism come together to celebrate and give thanks for their children's development.

 

Winter Cake Sale - 9th December 2017 12 - 3pm

An important part of the village's social calendar! A chance to stock up on delicious home-made produce for Christmas, buy a raffle ticket and enjoy good company.

 

Welcome Folder

Broadheath is expanding rapidly with new housing popping up all over the place. To  welcome newcomers and help them settle in, the Church has teamed up with the Parish Council and Taylor Wimpey to produce a handy Welcome Folder. Volunteers deliver one to every new family in the village, ensuring it contains up to date information about community activity, local businesses and organisations.

Palm Sunday

 

Jesus rode a donkey into Broadheath - but it was a puppet, decorated with ribbons! Singing and waving large palm fronds in the Spring sunshine, the puppet's attendants were cheered and tooted as they processed from the allotments along the Martley Road, to the church.

The very well behaved 'donkey' was welcomed in.
