Ahead of a return to school, everyone in our Sunday morning children’s groups receives a surprise gift

4 September 2020

Last week and this a team of volunteers along with Kate and Graham helped me to start to deliver gift bags to every family connected to the groups we call Bubbles, Faithbuilders, Excavate and Inters.  Under more normal circumstances each of these groups would meet in the church building every Sunday morning.

The bags contained a chocolate bar, a Meandering with Moses map, a Family at Moortown postcard and an age appropriate book connected to our recent Moses series.

The gift bag drop is just one of the ways along with: Church at Home, Family at Moortown’s YouTube channel, Moortots/Oasis LIVE, phone calls, WhatsApp, texts and socially distanced one to one meet ups that we are employing in order to stay connected with each other, with our children and with their families at this very strange time.

Thanks to all those who helped to deliver this week.  It came just at the right time I think as many children will be heading back to school next week; many for the first time since March. It also means that we can now move on to sort something fresh and innovative for our regular mid week week families who make up our under 5’s groups.

If you are connected to the groups I have mentioned above and you either haven’t received a bag or you know of someone who would really benefit from connecting with church in some way, whether they have younger or older children, do get in touch with me 

I look forward to keeping this conversation going with you throughout the autumn, and as a team I look forward to us all helping one another to develop exciting and creative ways to connect and build faith.
