All Schools and Universities have now started their summer holidays and I hope the weather will be sunny.
On Saturday 1st July, Messy Church took place and we enjoyed lots of fun activities. There was also a band and a picnic enjoyed by everyone who was there.
During July I took Vestry Group and the children learnt lots of new things. One week we talked about Joseph, and the children enjoyed listening to the music from the musical while they completed their Joseph figures. Another week we talked about The Parable of the Sower, and the children completed a seed picture of their choice (which was a bit messy!)
The final session before the summer was filled with fun as the children had a party outside with some games and food.
We all look forward to Mary-Jane returning to lead the Vestry Group in September, following her operation.
It is good to hear that the Church is hoping to appoint a Catalyst leader with one aim of encouraging more children into the Parish Church.
As I write this page I look forward to the annual Gulworthy Fete next Sunday. This is always a very friendly and entertaining afternoon.
I hope you all have a lovely summer and I look forward to writing to you all in September.
With love, Martha x
