We have spent time over the last few months looking at, and imagining, what it was like to be in Jerusalem around the time of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and in the months that followed. One of the main characters we have explored was Saul, who persecuted the followers of Jesus, but later experienced an incredible conversion on his way to Damascus.
We ended our year on an amazing high when Manor House School joined us with their visitors from Ghana. Our theme was that wherever we travel in the world, God is with us always. The Church was full as we praised God together in song, dance and prayer. The Hall was full afterwards too and we ran out of cups and bacon (despite multiple extra rations)!
Sadly, we have had to cancel our annual weekend away this year because the camp site is under water, however we will try to plan some other activities at points through the summer, weather permitting.
As we think ahead to September, we look forward to continuing to grow in faith and, led by the Spirit, to encourage others in any way we can to come and reconnect with God. May he bless all our plans this summer and refresh us ready to do his will. Amen.
