Jesus Christ RIP (Resurrection in Progress)

By: Florence Webb, Imogen Crown, and Alex chilvers.

Back from the dead??

Shocking news from his disciples; he is back?? On Sunday, shocking events unfolds as Mary Magdalene witnesses her son back from the dead, finding no corpse there whatsoever!!

WHERE DID HE GO?                                              

Some witnesses described seeing Jesus risen from the dead!!

The disciples asked Jesus (not knowing who he was at the time) to come and have a meal with them. As they did this, they gave him bread, once they broke the bread, they recognised him… It was Jesus! Back from the dead, he disappeared from right in front of their eyes.

A Ghost that doesn’t have muscle and bone?!

Jesus appeared to his friends, and they were stricken with fright; they were as white as a spectacle in front of them. Witnesses say he exclaimed, “Don’t be upset, and don’t let all these doubting questions take over. Look at my hands; look at my feet- its really me. Touch me. Look me over from head to toe. A ghost doesn’t have muscle and bone like this.” As they looked upon his him, just as he said, holes within his palms of his hands and soles of his feet. Jesus asked, “Do you have any food here?” Then, the disciples gave him some leftover fish that had cooked earlier. He then ate it, while his disciples gawped at their master.

Wanted or not legal tender !     

         £5.00 and £10.00  and £1.00


If you have any old five or ten-pound notes or £1.00 coins and have forgotten to spend them, then there is a way of spending them.


We will be very pleased to take your old £10.00 and £5.00 notes or £1.00 coins at any Church events. Or they can also be used for your Sunday collection.


We recently received 3 old £10.00 notes and they were taken to the bank to be paid in, and it turns out that they were £10.00 notes previous to the ones recently discontinued.

  The more we receive the better !!

An email received from the Archdeacon after the Sunday Service

 Just a quick note to thank you for the memorable service on Sunday. I was so pleased to be with you for my last official Sunday service.   

Thank you for the happy memories of ministry together and the lovely mementos of those recent services. Every time I see them, I smile, and my heart is warmed.

 I was trying to think what each one meant (always a test with an illustration- it sticks but the message behind it doesn’t!).

 Flap the fish- living as a disciple is hard work unless the Holy Spirit gives us wind in our sails.

Racing penguins- easy to get discouraged and give up. I guess the same could be said of the pancake races!

Wearing something colourful is a wonderful example of being generous and visible people of Jesus Christ.

 As to the triangle, I will try and hone my skills with my 5 year old granddaughter….

I realise each gift was costly in so many ways- the expenditure (Boomf cards aren’t cheap I’m sure), the time it took to think through everything and then source them.

Most costly of all is the wonderful needlework. What a fantastic picture that captures the church so beautifully. It is highly skilled and so precious- thank you. Currently it is in pride of place in my study- one of the only rooms that is sorted out.
