NEW CREATION NEWS – APRIL 2017
… Jesus said “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, I am sending you”…
(John Ch. 20 v. 21)
This is such a very special time of year. As we continue through Lent and prepare for Easter, the wonderful celebration of our Lord’s Death and Resurrection, may we challenge you to think how you may share with others the events recorded in the Bible. For example: if you still have cards or gifts to buy please do come in and look for ways in which you can proclaim this joyous Easter story, helping to bring the receiver closer to God.
When you give Easter Eggs, give the Fair Trade REAL EASTER EGG, the only one to celebrate the meaning of Easter. It contains a new illustrated version of the Easter story, a high quality milk chocolate egg, and a 25g Yummie Bar – all at last year’s price of £3.99! Also available is the Real Easter Egg Hunt Box (6 x 20g each egg) for £5 and the Real Easter Egg Special Edition (200g), with an orange milk choc. bar, for £8.50. We also have bags of mini eggs at £4.50 and ‘Shaun the Sheep’ chocolate lollies, 2 x 28g, for £3.20.
An opportunity for the Summer Term.
New Creation is part of the ‘Speaking Volumes’ outreach in the area.

Already a £200 grant has been given to a local ‘Messy Church’. Further orders may be placed through us. Applications need to be in by the end of April for their May Funding Consideration. More information may be had from Val or Penny, and there are pamphlets in the shop. Meanwhile check out www.speakingvolumes.org.uk
