HALLOWEEN

 
To celebrate 'Halloween', we celebrated that Jesus is the Light of the World. Over a dozen homes around the Parish were decorated with a light display and a trail map was given to different family groups to go around and visit them. A big thank you to Alex, our Children and Youth Minister, for her wonderfully creative idea and for organising the event.

A special thank you also to the children at St.Mark's School who took part in this event by making beautiful stained glass windows and pictures which were used to decorate the church link. 
 

Here are some photos:

St Mark's Toddlers has restarted and has temporarily changed how it operates due to the present restrictions. 'Families' book in and then have fun doing outdoor activities in groups of 6 (under a gazebo if wet). This has included a scavenger hunt and outdoor games. Also the Toddler toys are used with the mandatory cleaning put in place.

CHURCH FAMILY PICNIC
(PHOTOS USED WITH PARENTAL PERMISSION) 

SUMMER 2020

There continue to be many restrictions in place due to the virus really limiting what we can and cannot do in the Youth, Children and Families Ministry - things change at the drop of a hat making it difficult to plan, presenting many challenges but also great opportunities which need to be celebrated. In particular we have had to continue to be creative with how we connect with our families and young people. 

As lockdown measures eased over the summer we have been delighted to welcome back to church some of our young families and even had a picnic with them after the service on the main church lawn. 

Due to Government restrictions we are only allowed 30 at each picnic gathering (whilst also sticking to family/ school bubble groups and maintaining social distancing) so we have organised 3 picnics and the first was held on Sunday 30th August with the sun shining, a family kite making competition, fish and butterfly wands to make and chalk drawing fun. 

Here are some photos:

   We are blessed to have some really beautiful young families as part of our church family - please be praying for them.

SUMMER CHALLENGE 

 
          Over August the children were set a challenge to do a series of activities each week including: Joining in with the New Wine festival, which this year was online, buying a bag of jelly beans and using each colour to pray for something different, reading a new story from the Bible, taking a photo outside of church, finding the Vicarage and taking a photo there, taking food to the local foodbank, choosing a Bible verse and putting actions to it. 

Here are some photos from those who got involved - they did BRILLIANTLY, well done:
