A Spring Sunday Service with Sheep

25 Apr 2021, 10 a.m.
Our July family service was the usual light hearted yet meaningful affair.

We began inside the church with the theme of the symbolization within the Christian Church of the gathering of sheep. As well as an interesting presentation, the story of the Good Shepherd was read, and children in the congregation read the psalm: the Lord is My Shepherd.

This was such an appropriate service, given that it came toward the end of the lambing season.

Afterwards, on what was a beautifully sunny April Sunday, we all gathered around in a circle outside and made pom pom sheep out of wool, using a simple method we learned together.

An amazing selection of sheep were made, all with different faces drawn on a cut out card and glued to the pom pom. One example of our efforts is shown in the photo.

A wonderful Spring Sunday Family Service indeed!
