There were over sixty children: at the church Good Friday workshop, and they had a great morning with all sorts of arts and crafts, an egg hunt in the church, bread-making, and listening to the Easter story with the help of hot cross buns. Their art work on the panel in the front of the altar and the Easter garden had pride of place in the church. Our village church is a gem of a building, and it was a beautiful place to be for all the Easter celebrations. This Sunday sees a short service of Morning Praise at 10am followed by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting and a light lunch.
