'And on the Last Day...'
even pirates go to church!
August 1st was the final day of the 2008 St Faith's Children's Holiday
The morning was spent in a final
burst of group activities, getting everything ready
for the church service in the afternoon.
Eah group prepared a short
presentation to be shown in the course of the service
to parents and friends, and of course to each other.
St Faith's was decked out as a pirate
lair, including a parrot in the pulpit
(he couldn't even say 'Pieces of Eight', let alone preach a sermon!)
Two pirates read the lesson, then each
group sang their songs
and paraded their presentation - including a pirate ship on wheels!
Then everyone posed for a group photo,
with a banner marking the generous sponsorship
of Waitrose in Formby (suppliers
of barbecue food for later on!)
and it was time for a final holy action song before everyone left
and got ready for the fun and
games in the evening. We all hoped it would stay fine!
