This September Sparklers, our parent and toddler group, will have been running for an amazing 25 years.
In that time it's had a huge impact with hundreds of families having enjoyed the high quality, fun, relaxed environment the team creates every week. From day one it's always been centred around creating a safe place for people to hear about Jesus, and many people have come to know Christ as a result of attending Sparklers. So exciting.
As a celebration of all that's happened we are planning a celebration drop in, which will run in the Kerith Centre on Saturday 19th September from 11am – 2pm. We're inviting anyone who has ever been to Sparklers to come along, whether that was as a child, a parent, a grandparent, a carer or in any other capacity. If that's you then consider yourself invited!
The Sparklers team are also looking for more volunteers to get involved in what is one of our most exciting and fruitful ministries. Sparklers currently runs on Monday afternoon and Tueday and Wednesday morning, with a different team running each day. Roles include registering families, making tea, helping in the kitchen, chatting to people, helping to set up or helping to set down. The team particularly love having peopel from our retired community getting involved, with all the wisdom and experience they bring. If you'd be interested in getting involved please email Lydia Harris-Lane who oversees all of our work with children and families - she'd love to hear from you.
