I am aiming to have a Pram/Buggy Advent Service in December. I have been “googling” for ideas, but the things that come up are “How to keep your child quiet in church”, “ten tips to get your child to sit still.” This is not what I want at all. Now I don’t want a riot, I do need to be heard, but I’d like to make it as informal as possible, but give Mums/Dads/Grannies/ Granddads /Childminders around 45 minutes to enjoy a pre Christmas Service. Many are too busy on “the day” and can’t come to a formal Service. I’d like to provide a bit of fun for the children but the Church has no spare rooms for a crèche, it has to be from the buggy. I do have some puppets.
I’d like to take the focus away from Santa and presents and give them a chance to think about why Christmas happens at all.
Any ideas, however revolutionary, would be gratefully received, and if you don’t go to church, I’d like to hear what would help you enjoy a Christmas do in a Church building with your little ones.
Many thanks in anticipation of great things! Jenni xx
P.S. I received notification that you may see Ads on my blog. I have not consented to these, I don’t want them, but I refuse to pay an annual sum to prevent them appearing!
