Gamston Connect

Over a hundred people of all ages from across the community in Gamston came to join the Big Psalm Sunday donkey walk. After a great walk together, the community gathered back at the Primary School for a short message and community time together. This was followed by a joyful Easter Sunday service on the theme of finding Jesus, knowing Jesus and sharing Jesus!

St. Patrick’s, Nuthall

Starting on Palm Sunday, a couple in the congregation at St. Patrick’s in Nuthall provided a talking point for passers-by with their yarn-bombing (colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn) on the Church Gate Pillars. Each one told a different part of the story of Holy Week and Easter. This helped to share the message of Easter in a creative and engaging way for the village community and sparked a number of interesting questions and conversations.

St Judes Mapperley 

St Judes Mapperley ran an engaging Easter Trail and fun day during Holy Week. Over 300 people from the community spent time walking the trail, with many returning for the fun day to explore more the message of hope and new life this Easter.
