The Ark on Zoom on Thursday!
It was lovely to chat and share stories, craft and songs with families last week. Do join us this week!

On Thursdays from 10.30-11.30, parents, grandparents and carers can enjoy a very informal session with their pre-school children, toddlers and babies.

For the link, more information or any questions, email Linda on

As you can see the school is nearly finished – the roof is on, they now need doors and windows and hope to open the doors to the children of Maison Kimbilio and children from the surrounding area in September 2021.
This week there is matched funding for all donations up to $50 (about £35) until 5pm March 12th

During Lent we are offering a shorter, even more relaxed and informal opportunity to gather for prayer on Thursday at midday for just 15 minutes.  There will be a chance to chat and catch up afterwards.

We will be using the Pray for the Nation leaflet and themes from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and our own Prayer Calendar.  Most of you will have received a copy of these with our latest Newsletter.  Or you can download copies to print at home…
