Hi Parents and Carers,
Sorry that this update is later than I hoped. I hope that the various Easter eggs and treats were all well received by your children, and that you were able to share something of the Easter story with them. And that those of you with pre-school children have been dipping into the book we gave you - if you didn't get one, let us know.
Here's some headlines on what we've got planned:
I'm so looking forward to welcoming children back in! It's a shame that we haven't been able to offer more over the last few months, but I know that you'll understand that we've been very stretched since Rich stepped down at Christmas.
As we look to re-start groups, we will need more volunteers to help - some of our previous volunteers may be nervous about coming back on board. Helping at groups and events can be so rewarding - so please pray about whether you'd be willing to help out over the coming months.
As restrictions continue to ease, do take the opportunity to meet up with other families - maybe particularly those who are newer to our church or on the fringes? Re-building community is going to take time and effort from all of us!
Finally, back on the wellbeing theme, you might be interested in this webinar available this week only: building our children's emotional wellbeing - run by Care for the Family.
With my love and prayers,
