Carol Singing!

Year 6 brought great joy to the residents of York House Rest Home today when they stood outside and sang Christmas songs and carols.  The tennis players at Beach Gardens seemed to have enjoyed the singing too!

Las Posadas 2020

We will be celebrating Las Posadas again as part of our Advent preparations. The ‘Holy Family’ were brought to our class liturgies  and blessed, ready to start their journey visiting your homes. This year everyone will be having their own Mary and Joseph at the beginning of Advent. We will send home baby Jesus, shepherds and some livestock at the end of the term, and the kings and their camels after the holidays – ready for Epiphany – so you can create the whole nativity.

Do email us photos of The Holy Family in your homes so that we can share them on the website.

Harvest

Many thanks to everyone who brought in food for the food bank in Swanage, or money to help CAFOD in their work around the world. We were overwhelmed by your generosity. We held a lovely outdoor Harvest sharing time, followed by worship in our classrooms.

Swanage Food Bank

Please note that the Swanage Food Bank accepts self-referals. If you feel you need their help, you can call them on 07759 230313 .


The Food Bank has been so busy this week they’ve run out of all desserts – tinned fruit, custard, milk puddings, instant puddings. They’ve also no meat products left, including Frey Bentos pies, cold meats and tins of minced beef, stew, chilli con carne, chicken in sauce etc. Packets of rice, and tinned vegetables are also low in stock. The luxuries of sweets and chocolates have been used up, which aren’t strictly necessary but lift the clients’ hearts a bit at this difficult time.

Gifts can be left in the Food Bank containers in the following locations

  • Co-op
  • Budgens
  • Costcutters
  • Spa (Arkwrights)
  • at the Food Bank (the Food Bank which is open from 12-2 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Salvation Army Lower Hall in King’s Road East)
  • in the porch just inside the All Saints building.

All contributions will be really appreciated.
