WMC: April 2018
We were surprised and delighted to see so many families at Kids@church in March — the morning of all the snow!
Cath told the story of Noah's Ark and we all assisted her with actions and sound effects before getting out the beautiful ark Arnold made a few years ago and the children had great fun playing with that. In the hall some of the children continued to play with the ark and all the animals and some preferred to do some colouring. Thank you to everyone who made the effort to be there!
Our next Kids@Church will be on Sunday 15th April, when we will be going for a local spring walk and taking photographic evidence en route which we look forward to making into a display on the hall board. Please meet us at church for a 9:30 start — let's hope it's a beautiful day!
Kids@Church is an informal, service for primary school-aged children and their families and new friends are always welcome! If you'd like more information please phone Jane (765421).
