Christingle 2017

 

You will be delighted to know that the Chritingle Service will go ahead as usual.

The traditional start of Feniton's Christmas Celebrations will be at the usual place (St Andrew's Church, Feniton Old Village) at at the usual time (4pm on Christmas Eve) and in the usual format (large numbers of people including many many children - we hope - squeezing into the church for a magical service). It will be led by the Rev Anne Mills and we look forward to celebrating with you all, whether you be old, young, new arrival, long-time resident or visitor.

See you there

Hello friends, can you see what we mice are up to. Well Mum and Dad thought it would be a good idea if we leant a musical instrument. You see we enjoy the music in church so much they thought it was about time we joined in. So they managed to find a french horn and a

Hello friends, how are you? Do you like the photo of us on holiday? While you were away on half term we mice decided to have a trip to the seaside for our holiday too. We packed up our beach gear and travelled in our special mouse coach down to visit our cousins at the

 

On the first Sunday in each month at 10 am in St Andrew’s Church, Feniton, a special service is held for the younger children, with the name of  “Rev. Cates Story Time”. This lasts 30 minutes or so where songs are sung, prayers are said, birthdays are celebrated and a Bible story is told, finally there are drinks and biscuits for both children and the adults that bring them. If families wish to stay for the 11 am Holy Communion Service which follows the Storytime session, they are very welcome.

 

Toy bags

Toy bags are available, if you would like to use them with your child and can be found hanging under the stairs in the entrance vestibule at the base of the tower (most likely where you came in!). There is also a bookcase on wheels at the back of the church, just inside the glazed doors, which holds story books for children.

 

Can you find our animals?

In Feniton Church we have two toy cats who are looked after by 'Mrs Hearty', a knitted stuffed toy. The cats and Mrs Hearty move around the church from time to time. Can you find them?

In Payhembury Church there is a family of (toy) mice. I'm not sure how many there are so you will have to search thoroughly and see how many you can find. The sidesmen at your service may be able to tell you how many mice to look for!

 

Hi Friends,

Hope you are enjoying all the spring flowers, we certainly are. Did you know we mice like to climb up the daffodils, right up to the top of the trumpet (they don’t make any noise though) and then swing to and fro, it’s such fun!. When we were very small we used to climb right inside the trumpet and hide, but now we’re getting bigger we don’t fit.
