Godly Play for Easter As Easter approaches, we encourage you to watch this video with your children. As you sit with them just watch and listen until the end of the story. Then, talk about what the story means to each of you. Wonder: ..... what is most important about it, ......what you liked most about it, ......what is God trying to say to us through this story? Godly Play is a new way of telling stories (for young and old,) from the bible, allowing us to access our Christian Faith in a very personal way. Click here for the video: https://vimeo.com/404055917
Virtual Service for Sunday 29th March Preacher : Tim Mitchell Bible reading: the raising of Lazarus: John 11. To join in: click this link:https://vimeo.com/401637038
Virtual Service for Sunday 22nd March: Mothering Sunday
We have prepared a virtual service for Mothering Sunday, accessed by following this link :- https://vimeo.com/398887499 The idea is that everyone plays the video at 10.00am on Sunday, so that we are all worshiping together in time if not in space. This is a communion service, and you can partake of communion at home, simply get bread and wine together before the service and at the appropriate time you will be instructed what to do. The communion can be taken individually or with family and friends.
This is an experiment which we hope will be helpful. Please excuse any ‘glitches’ and please send constructive feedback so that we can improve things going forward through this difficult time.
