Spirit of Chellaston
Churches take part in community day
Chellaston Residents Association has held a Community Day in June for several years on the recreation ground, called 'Spirit of Chellaston'.
Churches Together in Chellaston take a stall there, and this year we had a display illustrating the theme ‘The Good Shepherd’. We also provided crafts for the children, using ideas about sheep. We were pleased to have over 30 children taking part during the day.
We were also asked to provide an item for the programme in the large marquee, and a joint choir of Churches Together, with St Peter's Church Choir sang popular hymns, and children's worship songs. The Open the Book Team also presented the story of ‘The Lost Sheep’, to complement our theme for the day.
We are very pleased to have this opportunity to engage with the people of Chellaston, and especially to renew contacts with parents and children we meet at other times at Open the Book, Messy Church, Sunday School, and Holiday Club.
