Treat or treat… “the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has never put it out” John 1:5
On a wet and misty evening we returned to Central Avenue park on the 31st October with bright lights and a different way to do Halloween!
Having done this for the last 8 years we have become a familiar sight in the community supplying sweets in abundance alongside games, craft, messy play, hot drinks, cake and a whole lot more.
One teenager said:
“I’ve been coming every year since you started and it just gets better and better. It’s always so much fun and it’s so good to see you all again.”
One parent said:
“We were never comfortable with taking our children trick or treating when on every other day of the year we say don’t talk to strangers! This offers a great alternative.”
One of our HBC helpers said:
“What a privilege to serve our local community, it has really given me the opportunity to get to know people, speak about my faith and explain why we like to offer an alternative at this time of year”
