|Holiday Club 'Teambuilders' - 6 to 10 August|
This year's Summer Holiday Club, "Teambuilders", runs from 6th to 10th August in the North Church. On the afternoon of Sunday 5th August we will be transforming the North Church into a sports stadium crowded with a large number of spectators.
For this we need your help. We will decorate the walls with as many "faces" as possible. These should be made from paper plates, old CD's or any other round shape which can be easily stuck onto a flat surface. They can be as simple or as fancy as you like - we need lots! Find out how YOU can help
|What's Important to You? - 15 July|
St. Mungo's elder Joan Cape led the service on Sunday
15 July, taking the theme 'What's important to you?'. Using the All
age spot Joan described what others have said was important,
while our congregation was asked to write down on a piece of paper what
was important to them. Joan would come back to that later but talked of
the wide range of 'things' that people find important above all others.
The sermon talked of the will to win, using Wimbledon and the football world cup as examples. This led on to the dilema of the rich man giving all his 'things' away to follow Jesus, and what that means.

| The Great Giveaway - 24 June |
Church theme on Sunday 24th was 'the great giveaway'. Based on Mark 10,
the crafts focused on what we can do for others rather than for
ourselves. A sketch played out in the church
at celebration time reinforced the message. A great BBQ under the
blazing sunshine in the garden added to the fun of the afternoon. Full Story
