Christ Church Wickford Carnival 9th September 2017
This year the Wickford Carnival was held on 9th September. Christ Church was once again at the centre of the activities.There was a good number of walkers from the members of Christ Church alongside other organisations.We woke up early to blow balloons; we packed them in a car and added some squeezes. All items were printed Christ Church Wickford, God loves you. The main banner read: ‘Jesus says: love one another.’ More words giving information about the Church’s location, and time of its activities were also printed on all items.
Other than walking and distributing literature and other items, Christ Church had two tents (stalls) in the Leisure Park of Nevendon, where the walk ended. There were various games in the tents and prizes for children. The walk started 1.00 pm at Church end Park; it ended around 3.00 pm. No one, however, felt tired; it was very well enjoyed by all who participated and all who came to met us on the way from the park of departure to the other. We are thankful to God for giving us opportunities to share our blessings with the community around us.
