I wonder how you have been getting on with the things you have given up for Lent. If you are anything like me you will have had good weeks and bad weeks. Times when it seemed easy to resist the temptation of that cup of coffee, and others when you had forgotten what you had given up until you took that first bite of the chocolate bar.

March2015 Report from Karen James
As I am writing this we are currently in the middle of the half term holiday club being held at Nether Green. It is based on space and is following highlights of Daniel. So far we have made banana biscuits without the bananas (don’t ask!), clay statues, discovered facts about space and heard about how Daniel and his friends coped with living away from their home and keeping to God’s law. The flight suit is very popular, even I can fit in it and it is surprisingly comfortable and we have had a lot of fun. One more day to go! I am very grateful to Graham, Will, Jill and Kath who have come along to help over the three days.
It has been a busy and exciting month and I’d like to start off by thanking everyone who has responded to my recent articles in the newsletter. It has been so encouraging to receive the extra offers of help and money towards buying ingredients for Tea and Toast. I realise that not everyone is able to physically help out with the work with young people but all these things (including the words of encouragement that so many have given) make it possible for the work to continue.
