Resources for Children and Families
As we have all had to give up so much this past year (holidays, seeing friends and families, parties...), we thought it would be good to encourage families to take something up instead.
Below is a colouring sheet of activities to do over the 40 days of Lent. Pick one as a family to do each day, and colour it in when you've completed it. We'd love you to share any photos of what you've been doing either by email or on our Facebook page
Looking ahead, we plan to put together a Messy Easter bag of activities, similar to the one we offered in the autumn.Sign up here: Messy Easter BagBags will be handed out at Sparsholt and Littleton churches between 10am and 11am on Saturday 20th March.Messy BlessingsCarol & Carol

FAITH AT HOME
The CofE is also launching #FaithAtHome on today (Thursday 30th April). This will be available to many children and young people through our partnership to provide collective worship with Oak Academy, and through church and school networks. It will offer people of all ages and faith backgrounds a chance to pause, think and reflect, and to rebuild lost habits of prayer and faithful reflection in the home.
These weekly 10-12 minute packages of video content will be available from 7th May.
The first can be accessed at Faith at Home
