Minister: Andrea Cozens
Theme: Toy Service
Video recording: There was no video recording on this Sunday.
Andrea led the service reminding us that we’re giving the gifts back to God in recognition of how we’re blessed in comparison to most of the world. The toys and donated during the service will go to the following recipients:
- Newcastle west end refugees
- ‘Maggies’, St Oswalds
- Single parent families in the local community
Liz Steele also introduced us to West End Youth Enquiry Service (WEYES), a charity which supports vulnerable young people aged 9-25 in Newcastle by offering free counselling, peer mentoring, open access youth drop-in sessions, 1:1 advice and information. The retiring collections at the Christmas services will directly fund activities and trips enabling young people to come together socially, increasing their self confidence and building life skills. (Cheques payable to “Children North East” please). Many thanks for your generosity.
