Anchor Section March 2019
Since last writing the Anchor Boys have been having a busy, active and varied time. Our last meeting in January was a celebration to our National Bard, namely Robert Burns.
The boys were encouraged to prepare something that would entertain us and we had a wonderful evening. We had a collection of Burns’ finest poems recited to us, jokes from our very own stand-up comedians and animals being produced from balloons. What a talented bunch! We shared with the boys how there is a collection of poetry in the Bible in the Book of Psalms. We also heard about the 23rd Psalm and the meaning of “the Lord is my Shepherd."
The following week we continued with the image of God being the Good Shepherd and had the story of the Lost Sheep as our theme for the night. The boys went home with a picture illustrating the story and a woolly sheep that they had made.
Since then we have had a Sports’ Evening and look forward to a further visit from Michael Kerins. Michael is a long standing friend of the Anchor Boys as well as a prize-winning story teller and childrens’ author.
At present the boys are busy working towards their next Anchor Boy award and their progress can be seen on the chart on the wall of the Small Hall.
We are also looking forward to being involved in the next service for the Uniformed Organisations and taking part in the march past the church afterwards.
On Friday 22nd March, the formal part of our Anchor Boy Session comes to an end. We shall be having our Parents’ Night and Prizegiving Event that night. All members of the congregation are mostly warmly invited to join us on this special evening. It will be in the Small Hall starting at 6.30 pm.
