I had word from the estate agent and we have permission to use the same shop again this year!!!
So Christmas Presence will take place in the old Clarks shop again and once more we are only being charged £1 for rent, plus the business insurance (which last year was around £85), rates (which last year we got free) and any electricity we use.
So thanks for all your prayers and please keep praying about what we will do inside the shop.
Don’t forget we have a prayer meeting next week Wed 17th Oct, 7pm at Berwick Baptist Church.
25.09.2018 From Rev Gill Welsh:
Providing we manage to get a premises for this year, we agreed to run Christmas Presence from Mon 3rd December - Sat 22nd December.
(Hopefully getting access to the property on 1st Dec to give us the weekend to set up, and having access until the 30th Dec in order to clear up afterwards)
Opening hours will be Mon - Fri: 10am - 2pm
Sat 10am - 4pm (providing there are enough people volunteering to help on Saturdays)
Sundays we will not open, although we may have a type of Carol Service on one of the Sunday afternoons!
Possible Activities will include:
tree / remembrance tree, Free Present wrapping service, Kids corner, comfy
seating and teas and coffees, Memories of Christmas past, puppets telling the
Christmas Story, Messy Church, Santa and face painting. Any other ideas
If you were not able to be at the meeting but wish to help out, if you could let me know what you would like to be involved with and any days / dates that you know you will not be available, then that will be great. Don’t worry if you are not that organised yet, I can get that information at our meeting in November.
