Easter Story Trail - Vounteers

Volunteer form at the bottom of the page

If you hadn't already heard, the Easter Story Trail is happening again this year between the 23rd and 29th March (plus some dates either side for set-up and pack-down). If you don't know what the Story Trail is have a look here for more information and see some pictures of this event from last year.

 

Over the Story Trail week this year, we are delighted to have 5 local primary schools who have signed up to bring along their pupils to take part in sessions where they venture around ‘Jerusalem’ experiencing the Easter story and hearing the gospel message.

 

This is an amazing opportunity for us as a church to share the gospel message in a different way to local children (as well as the teachers and parents who come along too!). Plus we will be extending the Story Trail this year over the weekend so that Dads Group, Sunday Club, the wider church and anyone else who might be interested can come along! Based on what we saw and experienced last year, we expect this week to be exciting, powerful and a great blessing to all those who take part.

 

Along with the excitement of what's ahead, we know that it is a huge undertaking for us as a community. To make all this possible again we need each church member to consider how they could help and support the event. There are lots of different things that need doing across various times over the course of about three weeks – helping with the Story Trail is not just restricted to weekdays!

 

Listed below are all the teams that need filling along with the times that they will be meeting. We would love for you to fill in the form to sign up to help on any of the teams. At the end of this page there is also a list of props that we would like to borrow for the week. If you would like to be part of any of these teams or can supply any props, please fill in the form below or email Fi (fiona.nicholls@northchurch.com) or sign up at the welcome desk on a Sunday.
