Easter fun at J.A.F.A. Church

Easter Day might be full of bunnies and crème eggs but not at J.A.F.A. Church!

J.A.F.A. Church is on Easter Day (Sunday 27th March) so rather than stand in a queue at Palacerigg Country Park, come along and join in the activities at Abronhill Parish Church from 4-6pm.

Make Easter bonnets, Easter gardens, decorate a hard boiled egg and roll it down the hillside outside the church, and go on an Easter Egg hunt. If you haven’t tried it yet, please do and learn what Easter really is about – the joy of Jesus’ wonderful resurrection.

JAFA Church is back for 2016

J.A.F.A. Church at Abronhill is back for the start of a new session. Why not give it a go?

Our theme this month is ‘New Beginnings’ so why not have your own new beginning and come along to Abronhill Parish Church on Sunday 31st January from 4 – 6pm. 

It’s free and we get fed too!  We’ll be planting seeds which you can take away and bring back next month showing us all how the seeds have grown. We’ll also be making calendars and lots of other things that have new beginnings. Hope to see you there!

JAFA Church at Abronhill

The next J.A.F.A. Church will be on Sunday 6th December from 4-6pm at Abronhill Parish Church. Please take note of the change of date. If you haven’t already tried it, why not come along and join in the fun.

This month’s J.A.F.A. Church will be looking at the Bible story called ‘The Parable of the Rich Young Fool‘. This isn’t a well-known story but it’s all about getting our priorities right. The young man in question is a rich farmer who sows a successful crop. His barns aren’t big enough to store all the wheat so he decides to tear them down and build bigger ones. Come along and hear what happens next…

We’ll be playing a game about getting our priorities in the right order, building barns with lollipop sticks and making a 3D jigsaw puzzle, among other things. Remember, it’s on Sunday 6th December. Hope to see you then!
