Global Partnerships Sunday
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Global Partnerships Sunday this week. If you didn’t manage to join us the video is still available here.
During the gathering Dave Brown said this:
Before we go, Sophia and Lucas threw out a challenge to make a Short Stop Motion movie – you can download apps to enable you to do this – the one they used cost £2.99. So, children and young people – how about making a stop motion movie with Lego, or plasticine or some other props? A movie about a Christian who inspires you or your favourite Bible story. There will be a prize for the best one in 2 age categories; those at Primary School and those at High School!
For Primary Age only: you may have noticed the items on the piano behind me changing during the service – how many times did they change and what were they!? Send in your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll drawn out 3 names for a prize. The prizes are wooden elephants or rhinos which were given to us by our friends at Emmanuel House in Sierra Leone.
We are planning on putting together a video montage of all the things you have been getting up to while on lock down. It would be great if you could send us a photo with a short note.
Show us what you have been making, playing, doing, challenges etc. We are looking for all the different ways you have found to do normal things! We would also love to see how you have been watching our live services together.
