Easter Holidays

It would appear that Spring has finally arrived.  Not that winter gave up its grip on Britain too easily.

We have spent a very cold week in Minehead celebrating Easter with over 5000 other Christians at Spring Harvest.  We have been looking at what it means to "Be, Say and Do"  the Gospel, that is the good news that Christ died for our sins and reconcile us with God.  We also spent the week studying 1 John in detail and reminding ourselves through the words of this book, that God loves us and therefore we should love others.

I have felt challenged to explore how we bring the message of Jesus to the children I work with during holiday club through out the year.  Currently I am talking to our congregation about how we extend our messy church service to the wider community.  I'll keep you updated!

My main craft this week has been Easter cards:

This week's Bible verse follows the theme we were looking at while at Spring Harvest and is:
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, 
but Christ lives in me.  
The life I now live in the body, 
I live in the Son of God, 
who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2: 20

Our prayer as a family this week is that God's word placed on hearts over Easter will find fruition at this time of new beginnings.

With God's blessings from my family to yours,
