A storm brewing in Sparx

by Tim Crahart
The Sparx group started back a few weeks ago and there was trouble brewing already. Well not quite! The children covered the story of Jesus claming the storm and created some wonderful pictures of it.

We hope you like them. We think the children have done a great job and they also really enjoyed making the pictures.

Thursday group is back… still looking for a name!

A very wise person once told me to ‘start from the very beginning, it’s a very good place to start!’
Ok, it was Maria in the sound of music, and she wasn’t really telling me, but seven strangely attentive and responsive children, but we can pretend!

Yesterday we held the first youth group of the year, and I think it was enjoyed by all. We started at the very beginning of time, and managed to fit seven days in to one hour session. We talked about creation, and they created the world. I thought you might like to see what we made… here it is…

If you are in year 6/7/8 please come along to the TLC on a Thursday evening at 6 til 7. It would be great to see you there.

Also, if you are free on a Thursday between 5.45 and 7.15 and would like to help out please let me know!

Preaching Theme Sept -Dec 2008

by Colin Dexter

We are going to be looking at the lives of Elijah & Elisha . (see 1 Kings 17 where Elijah suddenly appears)

These were two remarkable prophets & we we want to discover how God worked in their lives & how those who came into contact with them were affected.

There are some powerful events & miracles that occur but also deep emotion & trials

Start reading from 1 Kings 17 to be prepared.
