The young people and children from the J-Team (Junior Church) prepared and led last Sunday morning's service. This involved thinking through themes and ideas, writing the prayers and sketches as well as presenting them. It was refreshing to see such a wide age range being involved and putting a modern and relevant slant to the different parts of their service.
Skills picked up at a recent puppet workshop weekend were also in evidence during two of the sketches. They thanked J Team Leaders Viv Kemp and Michael Foote for their overall guidance but the quality of the youngsters thoughts and worship left the congregation looking forward to the next time!
