READING

Luke 1:26-38

 

EXPLORE TOGETHER QUESTIONS

  • What is the most shocking news
    you have ever received?
  • Do you prefer to be spontaneous
    or have everything organised?
  • What was Mary’s reaction when
    Gabriel gave her this shocking
    news?
  • Mary said ‘yes’ to God’s plan.
    What might God’s plan be for
    you and how can you say ‘yes’?

 

ACTIVITY IDEA

Design a Superhero costume each
for Mary and baby Jesus. Think
about appropriate colours, how they
would save the world and their
superpowers. (All these ideas will
help your design of their costumes.)

PRAYER IDEA

It seems to us that God did not
choose the most likely couple to help
save the world. Mary and Joseph were
young, poor, unmarried and
inexperienced.
But God chose them because they
trusted Him. God knew they would
not stop His plans coming true.
Find something totally inappropriate
with which to brush your hair e.g. an
orange, a key, a bottle.
It seems crazy that God would use an
orange to brush our hair with but if
that’s His plan, we must trust Him.
Nothing is impossible with God.
Pray for more trust in God

UPC Building Project Team – Progress

Hello All, here is the latest update from the UPC Building Project Team. We have recruited two new members. A very warm welcome to the team Anthony Bryson and Paul Daltry.

We hope you have all received your e-mail from the Church with Alan’s Restoration Video embedded. If you can think of anybody you know who would like to see it please forward it on to them. We are hoping to engage with as much of our local community as possible to see how they would like to use our buildings and grounds and we will adapt some of our plan accordingly. We would like more of our community to engage with our buildings and grounds, not only for worship, but also for historical interest and various heritage activities.

A team of congregation members has been hard at work mapping our monuments and are nearly ready to start the publishing process. Once completed we hope to have a fantastic interactive mapping product similar in design to the one at
http://kirkburtonchurchyard.co.uk

The Diocese has granted a faculty for the initial works to the bell frames and we hope work may start next spring.

If you would like to help out in any way or would like more information please get in touch.

Secretary to the Restoration Mission – UPC Building Project Team
