Following on from the success of “Come Rain or Shine” last summer, which took place in 12 churches across the diocese, we are encouraging more parishes to get involved with Come Rain or Shine 2020 with craft activities and food during the summer holidays.

Come Rain or Shine 2020The aim is to open our doors this summer and welcome families who may need activities which are free and fun. Added to this will be the promise of a healthy meal too, for adults and children, thereby helping some families who really suffer from the “summer holiday hunger gap”. We hope this will attract both local families and those on holiday.

The diocese is providing lots of help and support for this through a pack of craft ideas, physical games, fun ideas for inside and out and easy recipes to make in church. It is also hoped there will be funding to cover the costs of materials and ingredients.

For more information, please contact Jane Wheeler, who is very willing to come and meet you and your team to explain and discuss how “Come Rain or Shine” could work in your setting.
