Summer Holiday Activities

Summer holidays are nearly upon us and although we are having fantastic weather this year, it isn’t always easy finding activities to keep everyone amused which don’t cost too much. We have a solution for you.

The Beaminster Team churches are hosting four holiday club days in Toller Porcorum, Mosterton, Salway Ash and Drimpton. We have booked the village hall, organised a bouncy castle via Dorset Action Van, planned activities and simple crafts, collected some toys, baked a couple of cakes, and roped in some help. You just need to come and join us.

We are providing four different days gently themed around a bible story. Each village hall has outdoor and indoor space and all you need to do is turn up, perhaps bring a picnic blanket and any favourite toys, and join in.

We will have drinks and cake available all day and will host a “make your own sandwich” activity to feed you all for lunch. We will begin each day with a story and end each day with a prayer, but beyond that is is up to you. Join in or just chill, stay half an hour or all day.

This isn’t a drop your kids activity, sadly we can’t manage the numbers, however children aged ten and over may be signed in via a permission slip available on the day. Or perhaps you could join up with other families and bring a group of children together?

The dates and times are:

31 July 10.00-14.00 Toller Porcorum Village Hall

9 August 10.00-14.00 Mosterton Village Hall

13 August 11.30-15.00 Salway Ash Village Hall (note different time here)

20 August 10.00-14.00 Drimpton Village Hall

We also have Walk in Wednesday happening every week, with a craft table, toys, Lego, art and music. 10.00-15.00 St Mary’s Church, Beaminster.

Contact us via revneary@gmail.com if you want more information.

We look forward to seeing you.

Art Attack in Mosterton

The village of Mosterton is playing host to an art exhibition in April.

Art Attack promises a celebration of local art, craft, and other attractions and is being held at St. Mary’s Church Mosterton.

Make a note in your diary – the exhibition takes place over two days on April 21st and 22nd, from 10:00 to 18:00.

The event finishes with a Songs of Praise service at 18:00 on April 22nd. Favourite hymns can be suggested for this service (before the day). Contact Elfreda or Churchwardens.

Parrett and Axe School Explore Easter

Today we had Key Stage 1 children aged four to seven years from Parrett and Axe School visit St Mary’s Mosterton to explore the Easter story.

We talked about Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Day with activities linked to each part of the story. Then the older children joined us in church for a service where we retold the Easter story using our Hosanna banner, Palm leaf spinners, chalk crosses, Lego crosses and butterflies.

We reminded ourselves that the Easter story is about hope and new life, it doesn’t end with sadness on the cross but in joy with the resurrection.

Thank you to members of the congregation at Mosterton and Foundation Governors who supported the morning.
