30 children and their families came out on Easter Monday for our annual young people's Easter afternoon. They went on a picture hunt around the car park and parish gardens to find that Jesus promises EVERLASTING LIFE at Easter and honed their skateboarding skills with the team from Skates & Ladders. After a rainy start even the sun was smiling at the end!
Welcome to Lent 2017 at St Mary’s. During Lent we spend time with God and learn more about Him. Here is a challenge for you that is going to take you deeper into your faith.
Every Sunday in church, we hear stories from the Bible. During children’s liturgy, we hear stories about the life of Jesus and we also know many Old Testament stories. We know who Adam and Eve were, we have heard the story of Noah and the flood many times. We know about Abraham, Sarah and Isaac. About Joseph and his multi-coloured coat.
How Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. And how Jonah got swallowed by a fish.
But do you know who Cain and Abel were? What names Isaac gave to his twin boys? Whom Esther married? Why Solomon is famous? And, most important of all, whom the prophets of the Old Testament were talking about when they predicted the coming of the Messiah?
