On Saturday 20th September, One Way Puppets came to St. Francis' as we hosted one of their Regional Training Days. The church building was packed as people came to experience puppetry for the first time or develop their skills further.

After the morning session the training was split into three groups, one taking advantage of the good weather to do their puppetry outside the building - something that drew much attention at the time and much comment for days after.

The training marked the formal re-launch of the puppet ministry and we will be seeing a lot more of the puppets and their use in ministry as the Kid's Club begin to get to work with the many puppets that are to be found in our church.

If you fancy getting into puppets or would like to get involved with the Kid's Club and the puppets there - don't hesitate to contact us.

Another training event is planned for next year so keep your eyes on the website and the 'News and Views' sheet.
