Over 30 children took up the invitation from Duns and District Parishes to become ‘Desert Detectives’ on the recent school in-service day.
Led by Mark Bruce of Berwickshire Chrisitian Youth Trust and the team, the youngsters from P1-P7, enthusiastically took part in a fun, action-packed programme of active story-telling, songs, crafts, messiness and games. They dug up ancient artefacts buried in the sand which were sent, with the help of Kyle the camel, to the professor who explained their finds via video link.
The team plan to run a similar programme on the February in-service day but meantime all are welcome to join Sunday Club at 11 am on Sundays and are especially invited to the Pop-Up Nativity in Duns Parish Church on Sunday, December 18, at 11am when youngsters who come dressed as a nativity character, will be given a part. The traditional Christingle Service takes place on Christmas Eve at 6.30pm.
