MC Sunday 28th October - update

Lovedidcot MC

We had a wonderful time gathering together as a Love Didcot Community. We gathered first on a slightly windswept Wittenham Clumps for a short walk up to the top and around the clumps. We stopped to pause at the top and reflect on something about Jesus and as we did a beautiful rainbow appeared and then the heavens opened! It was a slightly surreal moment but we all quickly sought shelter in the trees at the clumps and enjoyed a group photograph.

After this we all gathered together at the Pococks house and enjoyed tea, cake and good company, before too long though it was all time to head home and get settled ahead of a new school term. It really was a great time together and we will be repeating it all again just after Christmas on the 30 Dec.


FCMC

Family Connect had some fresh air, food and family fun in West Hendred. The morning started with an autumnal walk through the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. The children had fun finding hidden words along the way which, when all collected, were rearranged to read the verses from Proverbs 3 v 5-6 about trusting in God.

Back at the village hall plenty of bacon butties were happily consumed (140 rashers in total!) and this was followed by a short period of worship together. To end the morning and sticking with the autumnal theme, we learnt about the importance of 3 biblical trees spanning creation, Jesus and Revelation.
