TASK: (or junior church as it used to be known) will meet on the first Sunday of every month before the family service. The aim is to get the All Saints kids meetings better integrated into the church year and ensure that each meeting will have a theme that is relevant to the bible reading used in the family service. There will be a bible story, craft activities, prayers and refreshments. Anyone of primary school age is welcome and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The meeting on Sunday, February 3 will be about The Feast of Presentation (Candlemas). This is one of the major feasts of the Christian year and celebrates the presentation of the child, Jesus, at the temple.
