We began the Church's year this Advent Sunday with a Christingle service. As Suzanne explained the symbolism of the fruit, she observed that some of the oranges were already a bit mouldy - but then parts of our world are rather mouldy too. The four cocktail sticks for the seasons were well-loaded with fruit and sweets for the harvests we are given but my toddler had managed to consume them all before we got to light the candles above.
After the service our 'first Sunday' meal was to raise money for the Bangladesh Cyclone appeal.
Our microrecycling point for stamps, foil, batteries and printer cartridges, which we began at the Green Sunday in July, is working well.
