Follow the Star

1741334f4437e713f17e8e16ce5d17e4A candlelit path will welcome you to the magical church of St. Peter’s next week. On Thursday, 15th December, commencing at 6pm the church is hosting a ‘Follow the Star’ event. 

You can jump straight into star gazing (weather permitting) and there will be a range of childrens’ activities, seasonal refreshments and a short service including insights into some astronomical wonders delivered by our local expert, Rebecca Whitehead.

And to extend the ‘star’ theme further we’ve come up with a candlelit ‘Graveyard Trail’ that will get you to ‘unearth’ (not literally) some of Haveringland’s former stars! A series of graves will be illuminated, but even so, it’s probably a good idea to bring a torch.

If you can help with stewarding, manning children’s activities, refreshments or in some other ways on the night that would be great, just let me know as soon as possible, please.

This promises to be a fascinating evening– with or without clear skies!

If you can’t make this event, may I wish you and yours a very happy Christmas and New Year…maybe we’ll see you at the meeting to firm up next year’s programme on Thursday 16th February commencing at 7.30pm. This is being held at The Old School, Haveringland. I hope you might be able to come along and give us your thoughts; so if you can and it is of interest, please put it in the diary.
