On Thursday 13 June and again on Wednesday 26 June a team of five church members from Wilsden Trinity Church, ably (and bravely) led by Sharon, went in to Wilsden Village Primary School to enjoy a day of games, craft activities, storytelling and a puppet show all linked to the story of The Flood with year 3.
This is the third year of such visits and has proved a highly effective and enjoyable means of communication and contact with the children of our community. The school have been very co-operative and have made our team most welcome - even providing them with lunch. The personal contact has made it possible to build real links with the school and they in turn have been happy to promote other things involving children on our behalf including our Friends & Heroes group.
The first visit three years ago was faced with terror and foreboding but our folk have had so much fun they can't wait for the next one. Many thanks to Sharon for her expertise, energy and enthusiasm and to the Circuit for allowing us to have so much of her time.
Wilsden is a largely ageing congregation and we have been struggling with a good deal of illness and infirmity amongst our membership in recent years. Many of the things we have attempted over the last couple of years have really seemed far beyond our capabilities but God has really blessed us in so many ways and continues to bless us.
