In Ross Union Parish we have introduced Kaleidoscope. It is a worship service organised especially for families – when parents and children can learn about God in a fun way. Each session has music, crafts, games and more. These family services are held in the Cathedral Narthex once a month and are followed by games and hot chocolate in the hall.
At our last Kaleidoscope service we made beautiful Advent envelopes to hang on twine and open each day receiving a good deed/feel good instruction for the day (bake a batch of cookies and deliver them to a neighbour/dance to Christmas carols in front of the Christmas tree) as well as a few lines of the Christmas story to read. It is lovely seeing them hanging in each others’ homes.
Together with the Ross Youth Group, Inspire, we held a beautiful Advent service for families in the Cathedral Narthex on 1st December at 6pm. We made Christingles and after the service we enjoyed hot chocolate, chips, cakes and time together.
