Carol Service at Woodseats

It’s that time of year when we bring out our singing voices and are entertained by life-size puppets. Woodseats Methodist Church hosted the Carol Service this year on 6th December. 

Over the night, many festive songs were sung, the puppets gave their version of Christmas bests, and leaders across the District received service awards including, David Macpherson. David put a lot of effort into organising the concert alongside members of the SAS and other District leaders. The night was a massive success with plenty of young people joining in the fun. Many thanks go to all those who contributed to the evening.

On the night, leaders were collecting donations to go towards two fantastic organisations. 

Grace Food Bank and Ukrainian refugee families. 

  • Grace Foodbank works mainly in S8 & S17 postcode areas – much of Sheaf District.
  • The newly formed (2022) Sheffield Branch of the Association of Ukrainians in the UK.

An amazing £224 was raised, so thank you to everyones generosity, £112.00 will go to each organisation.

The Carol Service attracts the younger age-ranges of our Scouting members, so it was really pleasing to see so many parents joining us for the festivities.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas with your family and friends.
