The Fisherman's Tale - Tuesday 12 June to Friday 22 June 2018

Cheadle Hulme Methodist Church has arranged in association with Bible Encounter Trust a presentation of The Fisherman’s Tale in church - with school sessions available from 12th – 22nd June inclusive.

Each session sees the children enter a labyrinth, transporting them firstly to the catacombs of ancient Rome and then to an atmospheric first century fisherman’s cottage. As they move through and become engaged with the immersive set, designed to give the children a ‘firsthand’ experience of life at the time of Jesus, the children are invited to hear the story of Jesus through the eyes of Simon Peter, one of his first disciples.

However, in order to run this ‘Tale’ we need voluntary help in setting up the church.

Below is a list of the help we need and if you feel that you could come along to the church on any/all of those dates, then please can you contact the Church Office or John Harrington indicating when you could help.
