Wimborne Methodist Church held a Light Celebration on the afternoon of Saturday 27th October. It was well attended by about 50 people of all ages, from babies and children, to mums and dads, grandparents, and even a nonagenarian great-grandparent!

The dais was set with a model of a five-foot lighthouse, complete with working light (kindly made by Colin Besant, from Holtwood Methodist), together with other sources of light — candles, torches, lanterns and fairy lights, and a sunny picture on the screen. The afternoon began with two videos — everyone was invited to sing along and follow the actions for "This Little Light of Mine" and "My Lighthouse".

After expending plenty of energy, it was time for some craft activities — paper lanterns, candle pictures, concertina candles, small lighthouses — and rocks and boats to surround the large lighthouse. There were badges, coasters and pictures to colour in and toys for the babies to play with.

Revd Gwyneth Owen spoke for a few minutes about how much everyone relies on light for everyday living, and linked it to the theme "Jesus is the Light of the World".

After a repeat performance of both songs, it was time to sit down for a delicious tea, before collecting all the crafts to take home.

The afternoon was full of fun, with a warm atmosphere. It was devised and led by Joy Morling and Jan Vincent, together with a dedicated team of helpers.

Many thanks to all who helped in any way to make the afternoon so successful.
