Today Rebecca took me to Hutton Rudby to see their community Hub. Rebecca had told me a lot about the Hub including how they had let her borrow a laptop and use the wi-fi while the circuit office was being set. I was excited to see for myself. Being so close to Christmas, I expected to see a few Christmassy decorations but was amazed to see life-sized nativity scene. I had to take a closer look.

Inside the Hub there were more signs of Christmas including an Advent Wreath and a familiar looking banner that I had seen at Stokesley on the Circuit Methodist Women in Britain Day. There was so much to see: the computer corner, a play area for little ones, a prayer corner, not to mention the servery with drinks and a range of cakes! As my stomach gave a growl, I decided that I would have to go for a drink and treat first. Although the cakes looked delicious, as I am trying to be good I went for two bear-sized gingerbread biscuits shaped as an angel and a Christmas tree.

While I sipped my tea, one of the volunteers at the servery came over to chat and explained that the Hub had been busy with about 40 people coming in including some people who also came to play table tennis. I was also told that there is usually a knitting group that meet on Monday afternoons but they were out having a Christmas lunch.

Feeling much revived, I went over to the prayer corner to see the Christmas tree. Right next to it was a smaller tree where you could hang a Christmas prayer. I took one of the Christmas tags and wrote my prayer. As I left the Hub, I wondered who else would write a Christmas prayer and place it on the tree and started to get excited about the lighting of the Christmas tree outside the Hub later that day.
