Dear Friends,

I thought it would be good during July to give you an update of some of the Children’s Work currently taking place in the Mission Area and at Landseer Road Methodist Church.

During term time two after School clubs are run each week. Our Ecumenical Messy Church with our Anglican friends which is based at St.Phillips, Wadgate Road, Walton and our Godly Play After School Club at Trimley School.

Additionally, the Open the Book team continue to go into both Fairfield and Colnies Schools. Leading assemblies in this way is in line with the National Curriculum and is appreciated by hard pressed teaching staff.

We are grateful to the Rev Jo Jacobs who initiated Open the Book for us.

We are looking for more folk to join the Open the Book team and if you feel you would like to commit to this outreach work, please do have a chat with Jo.

Robin and Mary Pattinson from Seaton Road, continue to run The Kids Club at Seaton Road assisted by other members of the team.

Trinity and Seaton Road both continue to run pre-school play groups.

We are grateful to Alison Davis and Dawn Bone for their involvement and leadership in these two different groups.

Two holiday clubs will run again this year. Robin and Mary will head up the team at Seaton Road and Alison Davis and Heather Carpenter at Trinity.

Personal thanks to the leaders and the dedicated teams that will be involved.

The theme is The Starship Discovery.

During the school summer holidays we also see a new venture at Trinity - the provision of a free meal for up to 30 children each Tuesday lunch time during the holidays. We have worked very closely with staff at Colnies and Fairfield School to ensure we are in line with current procedures and that this event is well advertised.

At Landseer Road, the Little Lambs pre-school group also continue to thrive under the leadership of Elizabeth Storey. The last meeting for the summer will be on 18 July which will incorporates a Teddy Bears picnic.

Every Friday, Debbie Peck and Elizabeth Storey continue to run the outreach project at Gainsborough library.

All the above work shows a real commitment from the Methodist Church to endeavour to share the Gospel with children and their families in our area.

Would you please remember all of these ventures in your prayers.

We pray for the children whom we have contact with and their families; we pray for the leaders and the helpers.

We ask God’s blessing upon all that we seek to do in His name.

May there be lots of fun, laughter, learning and praise throughout this summer holiday!

Love and God Bless

Rev'd. Diane
