Get involved - Learn something new - Enjoy!
With the advice given for everyone to stay at home during this time, we want to be able to provide resources to help with educating as well as creating a bit of fun in a time where maybe our days seem a lot less interesting and, at times, pretty boring!
On this page you'll find resources which are free for you to download, keep and use as much as you want. It would be great to hear how well you do at the quizzes, why not let us know on our Facebook?
Don't see something on here which you would like? Let us know and we'll see what we can do!
We want to encourage everyone to get involved in the 'Big Picnic for Hope' which takes place on Friday 8th May. This is an opportunity for your household to be part of a virtual get together, to help honour heroes past and present. Many of us would have been commemorating the 75th Anniversary of VE Day on May 8th with gatherings and parties around the UK, which unfortunately is no longer possible.
However, even in lockdown we can still recognise the date. With this picnic we can all celebrate and honour those past heroes, as well as those who are on the front line for us today - NHS, carers, delivery personnel, workers across food stores, public transport, teachers and more, as well as the effort from all of the nation to stay home and play our own individual part in helping to see this through. If you would like to know more, please take a look at the website which tells you all about it http://bigpicnicforhope.com/ We encourage everyone in our congregation on Friday 8 May to sit down and have their own picnics. Then we would like you to email Antony, Lydia or Will a photo of your picnic or you enjoying your food. We will be putting these images on our website and social media, so please only send us an image if you are happy for it to be published online.
To give you an idea for some decoration, you can CLICK HERE for a basic design of some VE bunting which you can use or adapt - or simply create your own.
There is a link also on the 'Big Picnic for Hope' website to a Just Giving page for Trussell Trust who support food banks. If you would like to donate towards this it would be greatly appreciated to help reach their #Feed5000 goal.
We hope this all makes sense and we look forward to seeing your picnics!
