"Thank God It's Sunday" happens in a tiny village called Criftins, near Ellesmere, Oswestry. It's been running for two years on a bi-monthly basis at 11.15 on a Sunday morning in the local school. When I (George, Lichfield's Director of Parish Mission) was there it was about 20 adults and 10 children, a good mixture of church folk and non-regulars. After some good food - a late breakfast of sausages in a bun - people got stuck in to the craft activities. The theme was scarecrows and everyone was asked to come in appropriate gear - hence my hat! It ended with a time of worship. What a brilliant event. It just shows - it can be done anywhere - and it works! For details contact Rev'd Anne Netherwood at
