The First Sunday of Advent was a busy one at Hadleigh Temple, the morning meeting seeing our Scout Troop parade their new colours for the first time. The young people presented a nativity tableau, and toys were collected for distribution to needy families over the Christmas period.
This evening, we welcomed the choir of Holy Family Catholic School from Benfleet, fresh from their recent success at the Southend Music Festival. It was good to see so many family and friends supporting the young singers, whose enthusiasm and musicality made a great impression. Particular blessing was brought by one of their songs, which spoke of being ‘the hands and feet of Jesus, a witness in His name’.
