Started in 2016 the ‘Sunday Seekers’ aims to interest all ages, from grandchildren to grandparents, with a variety of activities that would lead into, and contribute towards, an All-Age Worship Service in Norton Church.
At the opening session on Palm Sunday, palm branches and all kinds of banners were made and brought into a Service when The Reverend Richard Terrell wore donkey’s ears and told ‘The Donkey’s Tale’.
The Pentecost session saw the making of flame headbands, doves and wind spirals and at the ‘Martha and Mary’ session participants considered whether, in their lives, they were more ‘listeners’ than ‘doers’ and wore either ‘ears’ or ‘hands’.
The Sunday Seekers is designed for all ages. It is not intended solely for ‘children’. We are not doing something ‘for the children’ but something ‘with them’. So it is hoped that the initial success of the project will be maintained. The Seekers now meet in church at an 11am All Age Service on the first Sunday of odd months.
