The Jesse Tree
During each service in advent we decorated the Jesse Tree with symbols that represent a variety of Christians that we can learn about in the Bible.
Isaiah 11:1 “A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.”
Jesse was the father of King David.
Jesus was a descendant of King David.
The Jesse Tree represents the family tree of Christianity.
We collected together our shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child during our Fourth Sunday Service on 25th November.
Following the Remembrance service the bell ringing team rang the method Plain Hunt for an hour to commemorate the end of the First World War.
To commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One, the WI have knitted a display of weeping poppies. Amongst the red poppies there are some purple poppies that represent the animals that have been killed in action. Until Remembrance Sunday you can see the display in the entrance of St Peter's. After Remembrance Sunday the display will then be placed in the Colte chapel.
Thanks to Barbara Richmond and her crew who organised this and spent many hours displaying the poppies.
