We were thrilled when Santa managed to pop into Greasby Methodist Church to join us for breakfast on Saturday 18th December. Despite a rather busy schedule, he arrived about 9.00am to the joyous singing of children and families. Santa was really pleased to hear Jingle Bells and the songs about his reindeer, Rudolf. He listened carefully to all the hopes of the children as we ate a hearty breakfast – it was not only the adults who enjoyed the bacon butties!
To our surprise Santa did not know what we are really celebrating at Christmas so the children gathered around to help Paul tell him the Good News story of how and where Jesus was born, the shepherds called to visit Him first as well as the wise men who brough their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. We shared the news that Good News that Jesus was born to be King of the World. We enjoyed singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Jesus, the best gift that anyone could ever receive. However Santa did have some lovely presents for each of the children, and it was sad when he had to go on his way. But we hope to see him again next year
