Waltham St Lawrence Junior Choir...
has been running for over 30 years now,
to give local children a chance to learn performing skills and confidence
and to contribute to our local church community.
This year our Nativity Play will be
"Gold to Bethlehem"
The story of how one of the Kings nearly loses his gift of gold;
will the shepherds and the sheep find it in time for the presentation to baby Jesus?
Have you always wanted the chance to take part in the most important story of Christmas.
Join us for rehearsals and be there on
Sunday 16th December @ 10.30am
We meet every Thursday during term time
in the Neville Hall 6pm-7pm
if you are 5-11 years old!
For more information contact Fiona-07793563204
We are always pleased to welcome new members to the Club, which meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 2.30 pm in the Neville Hall. Talks are followed by tea and cake and an opportunity to meet new friends and catch up with old ones.
In recent months we have made a trip to the pantomime at the Hexagon in Reading, had a talk on the Great Exhibition of 1851 by John Brearley, a local historian, and in March, Richard Sykes gave us a fascinating and compelling account of his travels and experiences in Nepal. He visits there regularly on behalf of two very worthy Charities. His talk was illustrated with slides of the people, their way of life, the stunning scenery and the aftermath of the massive earthquake in 2015.
