'We can achieve so much together'
A small fellowship in Birkenhead shares the Easter message with 200 pupils after asking for help, Cathy Buntin reports
Laird Street Baptist Church wanted to make a difference during Holy Week but knew we could not do this on our own, so we asked our Life Expectancy link church St Bridgets, the local Anglican Church and the Assemblies of God Church in Egan Road to help us. They all rose to the challenge.
We invited approximately 200 children from the local primary school to share in an Easter Experience where we gave the Easter message. They visited five different stations around the church, showing the life of Jesus following on from Christmas.
The first station was about Jesus lost in the temple; the second station the feeding of the multitude; the third station the storm on the sea; the fourth station the communion, the fifth station the crucifixion.
We came together at the end to share the resurrection. The children were all given an Easter egg which had been very kindly donated by the local Cooperative funeral service near the church.
This was an amazing experience and the children and staff enjoyed every minute. We have learnt from this experience that together we can achieve great things from God, so we are looking forward to working together and waiting to see all that God has in store for us. It is all about resourcing together our God-given gifts and using them for His glory.
We can achieve so much together.
