It may be the end of June already (how did that happen?) and past the longest day of the year. Schools are not far away from breaking up for the holidays and perhaps the summer weather has been and gone! But whatever your situation it is not too late to plan something for THIS summer.
Schools – why not? Purchase the amazing Scripture Union resource for year 6 leavers entitled ‘It’s Your Move’ you can get a pack of 10 for just £20 so why not bless your school with a gift for the end of term and something which could really help the lives of school leavers. https://content.scriptureunion.org.uk/resource/its-your-move?variant_id=28981658571&options%5B10084233547%5D=Single
Community – why not? Get involved in a local event such as a Carnival or Fun Day by offering free refreshments, running some games, joining in with what’s happening on the day or offering some children’s activities and stories during the event.
Pop Up – why not? The beauty of the ‘pop up’ model is that you don’t need too much planning or preparation you can see what’s happening with the families in your area and wait on the weather forecast and then decide to run a morning of activities in the park or on the beach with our Summer Salt planning. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for help and advice
Day trip – why not? If you have a group of children and young people in your church, why not take a group of families off for the day together? Of course there are some great places around like Folly Farm but a free day out to the beach or to our beautiful Cathedral in St Davids with a picnic would work really well. Let us know if you need any help with permission forms or some activities you can do while you are out and about.
Fun day – why not? If you want to really get your whole church family together for a summer celebration why not let us help you plan a fun day together? We can offer a BBQ, games and activities, help with leading the day, resources and crafts. All we ask is for you to provide some helping hands, food and drink and of course – get people gathered together on the day.
Why not? Summer only comes round once a year so please do use it this year as an opportunity for your church to take a step forward in mission together.
