Did you know that the Bible is a collection of 66 different books and letters, written over a period of some 1,500 years and completed nearly 2,000 years ago? It is full of wisdom and tells of a God who loves us with an everlasting love. There is much to find out and we hope to do this in a fun way with activities and friendship. If this sounds intriguing please join us at Wensley village hall usually on the fourth Sunday of the month between 9.30am and 11am.
This is a project in the making and we hope all those children who attend will help us with ideas of how these sessions should develop. For instance, any favourite Bible stories you would especially like to hear again, craftwork to illustrate our learning, action songs you could teach us! Any particular biscuits for break time! Clever ideas for a name and a logo for the group. Parents are welcome to stay - refreshments and newspapers will be available to help them while away the time or come and join in too!
