MARCH |  Easter at Speen

We enjoyed activities with all ages as we remembered the final days of Jesus' life leading up to Good Friday and celebrated the joy and power of His resurrection from the dead on Easter Day!

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." 1 Peter 1:3.

DECEMBER |  Christmas Activities 

Tiddlers and Toddlers celebrated a "Happy Birthday Jesus Christmas Party" with party games, Christmas snacks, Nativity Story, craft and toys!

Time Out Ladies invited friends to a Christmas craft morning with delicious cakes and coffee and a Christmas reflection. 

Speen School Reception had fun making their own Christingles. 

'Christingle' means 'Christ Child' and originates from the Moravian Church. A symbol of Christianity, they are made from an orange decorated with red tape, sweets or dried fruit and a candle.

Each of these different elements has a special meaning:

  • The orange symbolises the world.

  • The red ribbon shows God's love for the world and the blood of Jesus.

  • The sweets/dried fruit represent God's creations.

  • The four cocktail sticks can represent either the four seasons or the four corners of the world.

  • The candle represents Jesus being the light of the world, bringing hope to those in darkness.

DECEMBER |  Advent

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death, a light has dawned (Isaiah 9:2).

Advent is a season of waiting. It is the season of waiting and looking forward to celebrating the arrival of God Himself in human flesh – Jesus the Light of the World.  Let us make this Advent our invitation to make much of Jesus in our own hearts, in our homes, with our church, amongst our family and friends and in our world.

NOVEMBER  |  Remembrance Sunday

Air Cdre Paul Oborn led our Service of Remembrance as we remembered all those who had lost their lives in service to their country in past and recent conflicts.  We were joined at our Service of Remembrance by the guides, brownies and Cllr Roger Craft  who laid wreaths at the lychgate Village War Memorial.

OCTOBER  | CELEBRATING THE NATIONS 

"All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord and all the families of the nation shall worship before You, for Kingship belongs to the Lord and He rules over the nations." Psalm 22:27–28 

We enjoyed a special time of celebration and fellowship at a service to celebrate the Nations and our rich diverse church family.  Representatives from Ukraine, Brazil, Ireland, Scotland, India, Ethiopia, New Zealand and England shared prayers for their country and a delicious variety of food!

SEPTEMBER | CELEBRATING LIFT

There is much to be thankful for as we look back at all the Lord has done through LIFT (Life in Full Trust), the charity set up by members of Speen Church to support Moira and team in South Gonder, Ethiopia, bringing transformation and hope to 100s of the most vulnerable families living in poverty. We look forward to all that the Lord will do in the future as the project continues under Beza International.  "I have come that they may have life, and life to the full". John10:10

APRIL|  EASTER AT SPEEN CHURCH

We enjoyed fellowship and a time of refection with communion at our Passover Supper on Maundy Thursday. On Good Friday we met for a family friendly walk followed by hot cross buns and the opportunity for creative prayer in the Chapel. 

Our Easter Day celebration started with an outdoor service of praise and worship as we were invited to "Come, See, Go and Tell" the good news just as the angel told Mary at the empty tomb:

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’   Matt 28:5-7 

MARCH  |  EASTER WITH SPEEN SCHOOL AND TODDLERS AND TIDDLERS

We were delighted to welcome Speen School to the Chapel where they explored the story of Easter in the Garden and made some beautiful stained glass window decorations in Chapel Hall.

Toddlers and Tiddlers enjoyed an Easter egg hunt in the Chapel and received a storybook about Easter.

MARCH  |  EASTER GARDEN

The Easter Garden in Speen Churchyard told the story of the first Easter from Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, his betrayal by a close friend, the Last Supper with his disciples, his death on the cross dying for the sins of the world and his victorious resurrection from the grave giving us the promise of eternal life!
