February Service After School in St.Lawrence

Home » News » Service After School

Over fifty children came along to Service After School in February, along with their parents, grandparents and other family members. The theme centred around 'Love and Compassion' and after listening to the story, singing and praying, the children enjoyed choosing from a whole range of activities including icing biscuit hearts, making posies to give to someone they love, making valentines, making baby Moses hidden in the bulrushes, writing prayers and making houses with all their family members inside. They were very busy!
The next SAS is on Thursday 9th March and we will be finding out about 'The Lost Son'. Children from all schools are welcome to come and join in the fun. We start about 3.15pm or as soon as you can get there, with a drink and a biscuit or two.
There will be no meeting in April because it falls during the Easter holiday but we will be back on 11th May.

So there...

Dear Friends,I am sure that we are grateful for the beautiful spring weather that we have enjoyed this week. It has given us much to be thankful for in this time of uncertainty and anxiety as our daily lives have in many ways been turned upside down.A hymn that brings me reassurance and comfort is:Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,There is no shadow of turning with Thee;Thou...
