This term the children have taken part in ‘Discover Christ Church‘ which again has proven an excellent opportunity to get to know our church community and spend some time finding out all about Christianity with the children able to ask questions and explore unknown parts of the church such as the organ and the altar. The children had a great time sewing, glass painting and touring the church.
