Noah's Ark Series

WhatsApp Image 2020 11 23 at 20.01.19During November (2020) we have been tackling the boredom of a second Lockdown by providing families with some stories and crafts. Our November series follows a Dove called Bow, who was on the ark with Noah. We listen to Bow over three videos as he finds out what Noah is doing and why. Each part is read by a different person. Perfect for a short bedtime story.

We also have a live trail up and down Cricklade Road in Gorse Hill. You can collect your finder sheet outside the church. The trail will be up till the 10th December 2020.
