Today we had a group of approximately 55 9-10 year olds from the Bluecoat School in Church to take part in the Pentecost Experience. We have had a brilliant day.
This year, Resolution House from GTS will be raising funds to help support our fabulous organ. They will hold events throughout the year and the first one was held on Friday 6th May when they organised a non-school uniform day and held various events such as busking in the grounds, bake sales, guess the number of sweets in a jar and even a bit of jousting on skateboards. They made a whopping £582.14! We are very grateful for their support.

Some beautiful colourful South American crosses designed by Year 1 at the Bluecoat School as part of their Arts Weeks. The Easter song, ‘When I think about the cross’ was used as a stimulus for the drawings. The children also wrote about what they think of when they see the cross at Easter time.
Ian the window cleaner called to let me know that his new hobby is high level photography using a camera mounted on a little plane... he has taken a video of the outside of the church and has loaded it onto You Tube,
as you can see he did this one on a very cold day recently...
