7th April 2019

At the beginning of the week I was in St Faith & St Martin CE Junior School for Collective Worship; the topic: If God created the world, why are there natural disasters? With chocolate buttons, a bit about free will (good/ bad decisions) and thinking about climate change – we were able to think about humanity’s impact on the world.

This week has been the final week of the school term & so the children have been learning all about Easter & celebrating it with their end of school services this week. Both schools had hot cross buns as refreshments afterwards. Thanks to everyone who helped with the buttering of the buns & with the refreshments themselves.

Last week we had a collection at our Sunday service for the DEC disaster fund for those affected by Cyclone Idai. Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Looking forward, next Sunday is Palm Sunday so there will be a procession from the church hall at 10.30am, please do join us if you can. The service itself will start in the church about 10.35am for those who want to go straight there.

In the afternoon, the final Lent prayer session will be Stations of the Cross. Stations of the Cross is about prayerfully following the last steps Jesus took to the Cross through a series of stations set round the church; we embark on a journey praying at each station.

Don’t forget the ‘History of the West End‘exhibition either at the university of Lincoln next Saturday or St Faith’s church hall on the Sunday.

Have a good week, God bless, Revd Julie
