All Saints', Wrington 
First Communion
Sunday, 3rd December, 2006

The 9.30 service on Advent Sunday 2006 was distinguished by introducing for the first time 5 young people over the age of 7 years, but as yet unconfirmed, to be formally admitted to taking communion. The importance of the occasion was underlined by having as guest preacher, Jane Whitcombe,the Bath & Wells diocesan children's adviser.
The five - Emma & Helen Bos, Naomi Mills, Danni Stirling and Ellie Thomas - came to sit with other family members in the chancel from the offertory hymn.
With the rector on the chancel steps ....

... and a special singing of 'Happy Birthday' for Esther Heggie
During Advent funds are raised by a bring and buy cake stall after the 9.30 service in aid of the Church Army and the Weston Winter Warmth project. Ellie Thomas sold 60 of her cakes, but saved a specially marked one for the rector.
