Recently traveled to Nagaland to work on a missionary trip, sent some videos and a report from there by email:
"One of the ophthalmologists on the team who is tech savvy put photos together with music.
The mission trip touched us profoundly. There were so many God moments and stories of our time that will forever be etched in our hearts and minds."
Nagaland - State of India
Founded as a State of India in December 1963, Nagaland is a mountainous state of twelve districts and a population of 2.275 million people (2012). In northeast India, bordering Myanmar, it is home to diverse indigenous tribes, with festivals and markets celebrating the different tribes' culture. Its capital city of Kohima suffered heavy fighting in World War II, commemorated by memorials at the Kohima War Cemetery. The Nagaland State Museum exhibits ancient weaponry, a ceremonial drum and other traditional Naga cultural artifacts.

Body Building Games & Fellowship Night
This is not a weight lifting course. This name is chosen as an event to build the Body of Christ in fellowship with fun and games. An evening to simply enjoy and get to know one another in a relaxed environment. If you like to have fun this event is for you. Come and join us! We meet on the third Saturday of each month in the hall, beginning at 7pm. It is preceded by "Messy Church". Come to one or come to both.
Messy Church is an inter-generational program for individuals and families, children and adults, on the third Saturday of every month, beginning at 5pm. "Messy Church" is intended particularly for people who are exploring belonging to a Christian community, who are unable or unwilling to commit to Sunday morning worship. "Messy Church" is followed by Body Building Games and Fellowship Night at 7pm.
For good fellowship, there is a time for coffee
and treats in the Church hall after
each of the Sunday morning
services. The teams of "Coffee Hour"
volunteers are indeed appreciated by all.
Operation Christmas Child
This project from Samaritan’s Purse has been embraced by families at St. Brice's Church for many years. Gift-filled shoeboxes are sent around the world to children who are suffering due to war, famine, natural disaster, poverty or neglect. There has always been a great response with approximately 50 shoeboxes prepared each Christmas.
2017 Christmas shoeboxes return date: Sunday November 19, 2017
Each Christmas, gifts collected through contributions from the parishioners for our program called the Cassellholme Tree are distributed to residents of the Cassellholme nursing home who are without family or close friends during the Christmas holidays
Each year St. Brice’s parishioners visit the elderly and shut-ins to sing carols and
spread some Christmas cheer.
Blue Christmas’ Memorial Hymn Sing
At this annual event parishioners get together for an evening of song and music meant to honour the memories of departed loved ones. This event builds fellowship, and provides a measure of comfort to those who find themselves alone at Christmas.
it is traditional to serve the pancake dinner on Shrove Tuesday (before Lent) and this is a popular family event and usually a fund-raiser for Missions.
December each year young volunteers at St. Brice’s serve the Church‘s Seniors a Christmas luncheon in the church hall, including turkey and all the trimmings. It is a blessing!
