Paddington returns from his pilgrimageWritten by Carole Cox
Do I smell marmalade sandwiches? That's right! I'm pleased to announce Paddington has finally finished his pilgrimage round all the churches in Wessex and is grateful for a little respite! He was excited to be back in time to visit Abbey URC for Romsey Sinfonietta presenting Paddington Bear’s first concert.
The WSYE will be having a meeting in May to look through his amazing journals and put together a resource pack to send out to all the churches. Following that, I would love to ask you three questions and if you feel called to please email them on to me so I can bring the views to our upcoming meeting.
Q1) How are you welcoming and encouraging the youth in and around your church?
Q2) How do you encourage them to walk the path of discipleship, to grow and spread God’s word?
Q3) Finally, what sort of thing would you like to see in a resource pack delivered to all the churches who received Paddington that would help our church proceed from the first two questions?
