Tonight, I went to a meeting at Jenny's, one of our parishioners, who kindly welcomed us with drinks and a strawberry roll. On the agenda, preparing for the 'church fete' on the 9th of June. So a few of us, Joan, Geraldine and Sonia were there, throwing ideas to see how we could organise it! I am not going to bore you with the details so I'll will go straight to the conclusion.
We all agreed that we would take this opportunity to do some Christian outreach at this event.
There will be a prayer wall for everybody to use, a stand where people can read Christian tracts and see copies of the one minute bible, the 'usual stalls' : book, plant and cake stalls, a slide and games for children, a relay race for the adults, a fancy dress 'défilé' with a prize, a stand where the primary school children would exhibit some craft, a painting competition, some musical 'interlude' , songs, and the last but not the least, 'refreshments possibly including strawberries'. I hope that I am not forgetting anything.
Any other tips or ideas are very welcome!
May the Lord give us strenght and guide us to use our skills harmoniously in the coming weeks to serve Him. In Jesus-Christ. Amen
- I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance. I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. I live blissfully with my husband Steven, a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
