Easter Notices

· I have been continuing to plan and lead our Celebrate for families service which takes place on the first Sunday of the month during the afternoon. For February and March I have delivered packs to our families with materials in for them to use during the service to make it more interactive for those joining in. We have made God’s Eyes (weaving craft) Prayer paper chains and “Bed Head Posters” Reminding us to pray for things that need changing in our world.

· Our fortnightly prayer get togethers specifically focusing on praying for the Children’s and Families’ work in our churches has been well supported and have been really encouraging meetings. Our next one is scheduled for Wednesday 24<sup>th</sup> March at 10.00am so please do let me know if you would like to join and I can give you the zoom details.

· I am excited to have completed my Safe Families training which will enable me to be a family friend to families in our local area. So it will be great to work with this fantastic charity who we as a church support.

· We have lots planned for Easter- Firstly, we will be running an Easter Trail in the grounds of St James Church on Easter Saturday and all the children who attend will get an egg and a easter book. I am also involved with a number of churches in Stourbridge who are setting up an Easter Trail around Mary Stevens Park. Both exciting ways to share the message of Easter with our communities! We will also be sending out Easter activities to both our Pre-School families and also our Celebrate families. Finally, we will be creating another Easter display on our board so watch this space!

Please do keep our Children’s and Families’ work in your prayers and thank you all for your continued help and support. As always do please get in touch with me if you have any queries or thoughts.

God Bless, Keri 07442499029 [email protected]
