St John’s Pen Pals

Do you remember the thrill of receiving a letter as a child? Would you like to be a penpal with a child at Oakfield School? Oakfield would like to set up links, via letter, between members of our congregation and children at the school. The letters will all be posted and delivered via the church. It would involve occasionally exchanging news and experiences with a child so that they can see the world through someone else’s eyes and get to know more about the people who make up our community. It will of course also be a great way of encouraging them to put pen to paper and improving their writing skills. If you would like to take part in this exciting new project please let Rev Sue know.
