Brownies at a Eucharist with a Difference

St Nicolas',  Sunday 18 June 2006

The night before this Eucharist with a Difference the 36th Cheltenham (St Nicolas) Brownies were sleeping in St Nicolas' Hall as part of the BT Giant Sleepover.  They had lots of fun and everyone made themselves a teddy bear.  You can read more about it on their website

In their church parade the Brownies taught the St Nicolas congregation a new song, Hey-la-li,
and told us the story of how Jesus fed the 5000.

lesson in teamwork Blessing each Brownie during the Communion

Father Grant got some of the Brownies to hold on to a rope and told them they mustn't let it go while they had 20 seconds to go to the corners of the church to pick up bars of chocolate.  An important lesson in team work was learned.

After the communion, Fr Grant asked all the Brownies to hold up the Teddy Bears they had made the evening before and blessed the bears.
