The weather outside was miserable but inside the church at Killinghall was warm and filled with festive cheer on Saturday 1st December for a family fun day.
Children from the village gathered to make festive crafts in the morning. The floor was carpeted with a layer of glitter as the children decorated Christmas cards, gingerbread biscuits and baubles.
More people joined at lunchtime for hot dogs and delicious soup followed by carols round the Christmas tree. A delicious afternoon tea rounded the day off.
There was a tombola, cake stall, sweet tree stall (with all proceeds going to Great Ormond Street Hospital), a raffle and a name the teddy competition.
The day was organised by members of the congregation who baked cakes, cooked warming soup and made delicious sandwiches.
It really was a fabulous day and lovely to see the church alive with laughter and festive cheer.
The day raised a total of £400 for the church.
More Christmas activities will take place throughout December in all four churches. Keep an eye on the upcoming events page for more information.
