Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat Info 11th May 2019

Messy Church – April 2019

Today’s Messy subject was Joseph, the first of a series that will take us into the Autumn. We looked at his early life, his multicoloured coat and how jealousy can spoil things. We made tissue paper pictures of him wearing his coat and friendship bracelets, that we made to give to our special friends. Next time we will learn about his life in Egypt.

Easter Day Holy Communion at St Bart’s. April 2019.

The array of beautiful flowers arranged by Audrey, Kathryn, Jean and Elizabeth adorned the church and with the sun streaming through the windows it was a perfect start to Easter Day. Together we announced the resurrection of the Lord and visitors from the canal on holiday, joined our usual parishioners, to celebrate Jesus’s triumphal rising from the dead.

Good Friday – Follow the Cross. April 2019.

Palm Sunday Cafe Church 14th April 2019

It was a full service today as we remembered Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and we thought about how he went from Hero to crucifixion in 5 days. We made our own newspaper headlines for the days following the arrival in Jerusalem and the arrest and trial. The children made their own chocolate nests full of eggs and we reviewed our Actions speak Louder than Words task list that we set ourselves last month. Today is the first of Holy Week and everyone took home a palm cross to remember it throughout the year ahead.
