BUMBLE TOTS

BUZZ along our toddler group, Bumble Tots, for babies, toddlers and pre-school children!Wednesday mornings, 10am until 12noon (second Wednesday September to end of May). This group is a ministry to the community, where we aim to reach out to families and share the love of Jesus Christ.

 We seek to provide a safe and stimulating environment, where your little ones can make new friends and have some good play time. We also have a Bible story and song time and regularly have a simple craft. Tea time is a treat with lots to eat - not just for the children but for the grown ups too.

 Throughout the years' session we organise a few special events - outing to Dino's Den, Christmas Party, Chinese Night (child free!!)...just to whet your appetite!

 As a mum, dad, grandparent, child-minder or friend, you are made most welcome to our group. It's a place where you can relax and make new friends too.

                                 MINISTRY TO THE ELDERLY IN COMBER

 

The Protestant Churches in the town have the opportunity to take Sunday afternoon Services, in the accommodation in the town for the elderly.  These services are from 2.30 pm – 3.00 pm on a rota basis drawn up by Rev I Gilpin.  Whilst Mount Alexander has a service every Sunday, the Four Seasons and Weir Court have a service only once a month.

 

There are three types of Accommodation in Comber.

 

Nursing Home – Comber Care Home run by the Four Seasons Group

 

As is obvious the Four Seasons Home provides nursing care.  Many of the residents have dementia, are not mobile and have medical and other problems; yet despite their difficulties they always enjoy the Sunday afternoon Service and can join in the singing and Bible Verses as they are able.  The staff are very good at bringing the residents for the Service and those on duty at the Office also have opportunity to hear the Service. 

 

Residential Home – Mount Alexander

 

The residents here are reasonable mobile with assistance and do not need nursing care.  As Mount Alexander is an EMI (Elderly Mentally Infirm) home and most suffer from some memory loss then like Comber Care Home, the messages need to be short, simple and reinforce God’s Word. The residents come from that generation who attended Church and Sunday school and had to memorise Bible passages in their youth.  God has promised to bless His Word and the messages brought by our team can reach into the long-term memory to touch, bless and encourage those who attend. 

 

 

Retirement/Sheltered Housing – Weir Court

 

In Sheltered Housing the tenants have their own flats and mostly look after their own needs.  They come together and share in the Services which are held once a month except July and August.  The tenants in Weir Court are the ‘young elderly’ and are very attentive, appreciative and participate in the singing of the hymns and Bible Verses. 

 

Retirement/Sheltered Housing – Stepping Stones

 

Stepping Stones is not on the Rota for the Sunday Services but we take an Easter Service and a Carol Service there each year. 

 

God’s Word is powerful and is living and active; sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
