Our usual pattern of worship 

Easter at Washingwell School: It was great to be invited to share the Easter Story on the last day of Spring Term. The pupils were so attentive, sang beautifully... and their improvised acting simply inspired! I was asked to judge the Easter Egg competition ... which proved a really difficult a job as all entries were of a very high standard (see gallery below). There was also a competition for parents... the winners and their wonderful and 'eggs-tra-ordinary' creations are displayed below too. Well done to everyone! Thank you Mrs Hall for inviting me in. Happy Easter from Fr Barry

We want to tell the Easter Story to as many people as possible. To celebrate and bring attention to the Resurrection of Jesus we are 'releasing' into the community a flock of Easter Chicks. Each chick will carry an invite to its 'finder' to come and join the worship at any church in Whickham. But we need your help and involvement. Please start knitting. Be as creative as you like. Make your chicks stand out in a crowd. They can be as individual and unique as you like. Bring them to church where we look after them until their release into the village. See the Pattern below.
