special events 2017

Experience Easter

For the fourth year both Amble Links and Amble First schools were invited to the event. Over 200 children came. For some it was the fourth time but some for the first.

There were six stations around the church each with volunteers dressed in costume to tell the special story.

The children visited each one and at the end were given a stamp to put on a card. As they could not visit the stations in order they were given the stamps in the order so that they could remember how the story unfolded.

Most who had been before could remember something from previous visits. For example they all said they remembered the bread at "Remember me" and dipping their finger in the water at "Servant King". At the "Alone" station, which was the Garden of Gethsemane, they were invited to make little figures so that Jesus was not alone. This year apart from figures of people we had snails, snakes, wolves and even a dinosaur.

Once again all the storytellers had a lovely time meeting all the children and telling the story. Thanks must go to Penny Horseman for organising the event and we look forward to next year.
