The Sunday Club at Birstall Methodist, which meets during the Sunday morning service, spent a couple of sessions building up papier mache on the cardboard hands and then painting them. Our youngest member insisted on sampling the glue so it’s a good job it is only flour and water. They made an excellent job.
Construction work spread to Edgehill Methodist at the end of the Summer. The small congregation has recently moved in to All Saints Church on Kerrysdale Avenue, where they have been warmly welcomed by the multi-cultural and multi-lingual Anglican congregation. The Methodists still hold their regular coffee morning on Thursdays. Grandchildren of some of the regulars were introduced to the joy of Hama beads and made some “jewels” for the wise men puppets.
