Night Light's

Last night St Paul's hosted an alternative event to Halloween. Our Night Light's event was from 5.30-7.0pm and offered young people a whole vari ety of games including apple bobbing and doughnut eating. As well as craft activities with glow in the dark stickers and cake decorating there was plenty to keep everyone amused.

Our theme was Jesus the Light of the World. We sang a song called 'Let your light shine' and then were reminded that the light and love of Jesus Christ was bigger and brighter than the dark. We heard from John 8 where Jesus said he was the light of the world but also Matthew 5 where Jesus says 'You are the light of the world'. We were reminded that we are called to reflect the light and love of Jesus and share it with all the world.

We finished our celebrations with a shared tea together. Good fun was had by the 19 young people who came along. Our next Fun@4 celebration is on Sunday 8th December which follows the same format (games, craft, song, stories and food) as we think about advent and getting ready for Christmas.
