As I am sure you are aware, a large part of Children’s Ministry involves telling stories. There are many fantastic story books to help younger children enjoy and understand the bible. At our pre-school groups in both Greens Norton and Towcester we use storytelling to engage and enthuse children about Jesus’ life and we use story telling in our schools to develop children’s understanding of the Christian faith. To enable us to do this more creatively, we would like to use knitted characters to ‘act out’ different Bible stories. If you are a keen knitter (or a beginner!), we would be very grateful if you could make a generic knitted character for us. The pattern is very simple (so I am told!) and would be used in a variety of ways. Eventually we would like to offer these characters in the form of a ‘story sack’ that would be given to each of our benefice schools with a bible story for the children to discover for themselves. These stories would be changed regularly and could also be used for adults in the schools to share. If you would like a copy of the pattern, please speak to either Claire or Rev. Paula. Thank you for your continued support of Children and Families work in our Benefice. Claire Reetz

ST LAWRENCE FILM NIGHTS The planned dates will be November 2019, January, February and March 2020, definite dates to be decided. Due to parking difficulties at Silverstone our Film Nights have moved to the Chantry Towcester. This is not a commercial operation and we operate under a strictly “Donation” system, all proceeds go to the “Fund Raising” of St of Lawrence Church. We need to know, have you any ideas about which Films you would like to see and provided the Film is on the approved distributer list then we can show it. Please get back to Mike Hornett with your any suggestions to or via the Office
