Come and Sing!

A reminder that this Sunday evening – 3rd December – there will be a ‘Come and Sing‘ Christmas Carol service in Abronhill Parish Church at 6.30pm.

There will be carols old and new with some spoken words in-between groups of carols, so the congregation can catch their breath! There will also be refreshments afterwards.

JAFA Church does Advent

Yes, we know J.A.F.A. Church should be celebrating St. Andrew’s Day on 27th November but as it’s also the first Sunday in Advent and also, as the last Sunday of December is Christmas Day this year, we decided to have as our theme ‘Advent’ instead of St. Andrew.

So on Sunday 27th November, from 4-6pm at Abronhill Parish Church, we will be exploring the theme of ‘Advent’ (the name we give to the lead-up to Christmas).

We’ll be playing a dice game using the badminton court, journeying with Mary and Joseph on the long journey to Bethlehem, making advent wreaths / crowns, making Christmas banners and, as we’ll need a star to light the way, so we’ll be making stars too.

We hope you’ll come along and join in the fun! It’s free and we get fed too!

Light instead of darkness 

​The nights are fair drawing in – it’s getting darker earlier – so what about some light, eh?!  This month, J.A.F.A. Church’s theme is “Light instead of darkness”.  

We’re on 30th October – the day the clocks go back – 4-6pm at Abronhill Parish Church.  Why not come along? 

We’re making stained glass pictures, we’re icing biscuits with white and dark chocolate, making paper lanterns and glass painting.  Mind you, if you’re brave enough why not try our game of feeling for different things while blindfolded – are you brave enough to try?  

Come along and join in the fun!  It’s free and we’ll be finding out how Jesus brings light to the world. Remember, that’s Sunday 30th October from 4-6pm at Abronhill Parish Church. See you there!
