Supper at Emmaus What are you talking about?
What are you talking about? is a question that Jesus asked two travellers just after that first Easter. Like Christmas, Easter can get consumed with arranging holidays, childcare, family meals, and the equal distribution of Easter eggs between children. You may also review whether your gardening or DIY plans for the Easter weekend might be a little ambitious after all! This picture of Jesus sharing a meal, sharing Holy Communion with the two travellers and their hosts reminds us that Jesus’ resurrection, and the hope and joy this brings, is at the heart of Easter. Whilst enjoying Easter, take a few moments to talk about the event at its centre and consider what it means to you and those you gather with this Easter break

Messy Church

Messy Church is church with a difference - a family-friendly time of fun, games, food and craft.  It’s on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 3.30 – 5.50pm in Holy Rood Church, so great to come along right after collecting the children from school. The next one is on Wednesday 14th May. We start with an hour of games and craft activities, then a celebration with songs and a Bible story, then a hot meal together – so no need to think what to cook for tea on Messy Church days! To find out more contact the church office, 01329 661154 or email office@croftonparish.org.uk

Prayer

‘You heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help’ Psalm 31:22
Every day there is prayer going on in this church for all kinds of different people and situations. Some are anxious about family members, or facing illness, unemployment or money problems. If you would like prayer for any situation please click on the Prayer Requests button and email prayer@croftonparish.org.uk  You don’t have to give your name if you’d rather not, but please be assured that anything you say or share with us will be treated in the strictest confidence. If you would like one of the clergy to pray for you at home that can also be arranged.
