Palm Sunday March 20th Easter Crafts for Children
Together with St Luke’s WPC is offering a Easter crafts workshop for children (and parents!) on 20th March, 2-4pm at St Luke’s
. Each of our churches is responsible for 5 crafts. Ideas so far include making palm crosses, decorating wooden crosses (one side for Good Friday, the other for Easter Sunday), Good Friday/Easter Gardens, making pretzels. We need people to host the tables and will be looking for craft resources. Let Leanne or Sue Myhill know if you can help in anyway or if you have any other ideas for crafts.
