Our home-made Family Worship service. Thanks very much to Bev, Toby, Nick & Hannah, Amy & Matthew and the various camera crews across Bollington for helping with our service today 🙂 The opening scene of this video shows a snapshot from Christmas in church!?! We hope it’s not that long before we can gather together in person again for worship! We look forward to re-opening the church building hopefully in the Autumn, after successful completion of our ongoing kitchen development project, but meanwhile stay safe and keep well 🙂 Veronica
The Easter story was told in instalments this year across two of our family services on 6 April and 4 May
We first explored the story of Jesus arriving in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and the children made palm branches to carry in procession following Jesus riding on a donkey. Then we heard about Jesus’ Last Supper with his friends and enthusiastically shared in a meal of bread dipped in grape juice.
During the next service we successfully guessed the names of Jesus’ close friends and then the young people acted out the story of them all going to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane (mainly falling asleep after a good meal instead of staying awake to pray with their friend Jesus).
Then we saw Jesus being arrested, tried and taken away to die. His body was placed in the tomb, but on Easter morning the angel rolled away the stone and the tomb was empty. Jesus’s friend Mary Magdalene turned around and was amazed to see Jesus there in the garden, risen from the dead.
We all celebrated with another Easter Egg hunt!
