Journey to the Stable 2015

The Beginning of the Journey

The Beginning of the Journey

Friday 4th December to Monday 7th December 2015

Journey to the Stable

took place at Sandown Methodist Church from

Friday 4th December – until Monday 7th December  2015

where visitors found something to reflect on, something to do, and something to take away  from their journey – and light refreshments were served to help them on their way.

Over the four days we welcomed a good number of people who wanted to share in the ‘Journey to the Stable’, as well as those who needed to step over our threshold to find peace, a listening ear, or a moment of refreshment in this busy and hectic time of year.

We enjoyed pleasant company over cups of tea and coffee with those we already knew. We welcomed those who came in as ‘strangers’,  shared some of their experiences and life-story, and left as friends. And, at times, some of us even indulged in some deep and enlightening conversations.

There was a chance to watch a short simple version of the Nativity on the screen, and ‘Christmas cards’ to colour for the younger ones.

Altogether a very worthwhile few days.

Not quite journey's end !
