If you have ever been to our Church Centre on a tuesday or wednesday morning you will be greeted by the sound of chatter, coffee cups clatter and children running around playing. Songs such as The Wheels on the bus will fill your ears and you will have the oppertunity to make wonderful things from paintings to a sticker butterfly.
Tiddlywinks and Toy Library are such wonderful ministeries within our church and if you were at a recent Church Meeting you would of heard of a wonderful year that has been had. To end it well, the team host a BBQ and give you a taste of what happened Dianna Swale (Tiddlywinks Team Leader) writes this…
I firmly believe in the power of prayer and when we trust in Our Lord Jesus all good things will happen. Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:3-5
Last Thursday BBC’s Tiddlywinks and Toy Library had their annual Summer BBQ for the Mums, Dads and Carers. This year we decided that we would decorate the Church Centre and what a better way to kick off the summer with a beach theme. The walls were wrapped with palm tree beach scenes to create the beach mode, there were free standing umbrellas with hanging lanterns and palm trees hanging from the ceiling. The tables were beautifully decorated with flowers and there was even a non-alcohol cocktail bar. The buffet table was laden with the most scrumptious food.
We had two guest speakers both who are members of Burlington Baptist Church. Our first guest speaker shared with us how she came to now Jesus, a very moving and powerful testimony. This was very well received.
Our second guest speaker, spoke for the charity, Perspectives Pregnancy Advice, www.pregnancyadviceipswich.org.uk. They are a Christian based charity and they offer free confidential support for those experiencing unplanned pregnancy, pregnancy loss, post abortion stress and post adoption grief.
This was followed by a craft demonstration; we all had the chance to make either a hanging heart or a bird. Through lots of prayer, faithfulness and determination the evening was a complete success.
Why not take a moment to thank God for the work of Tiddlywinks and Toy Library. Praise him for the faithful team of helpers, the many Mum’s, Dad’s, Carer’s, and Grandparents who find these places a safe and wonderful place to be and let’ Thank God for the work he is doing in the lives of those who come.
