Patterdale Anglican and Methodist churches came together on Sunday 16th September for a family fun day and songs of praise outdoor service. Children engaged with many activities all based around the Lost Sheep parable. A child friendly worship time included a story , songs and prayer time. Refreshments were served and then led into a more traditional songs of praise type service.
It was wonderful to see the usual Sunday congregation doubled in size and to include so many children and families with little or no connection to the church. this reaching out was seen to be a huge success and thoughts are going onto planning what’s next.
