Teds on parade

Teds came to the ATC squadron with me again in what is being the new normal of virtual meetings. They sat and watched as the squadron got to grips with a quiz I had found on Covid-19.

Why a clergyman doing a quiz and not talking about God? Well I was interested in what ‘truths’ the teenagers had picked up from the media about Covid-19 and wanted to make sure they were informed and not scared.

We then had a discussion about highs and lows of lock down of which there were thoughts from both sides of the equation.

Thinking about VE Day 75

The Vicarage may have been decked with home-made bunting but Tedi Su and Sandy Lou were sad.  Sad because VE Day 75 was meant to be a big weekend in the Parish.

They had been looking forward to going along to a wedding that was meant to take place at St Bride’s and then spending the rest of the weekend remembering the sacrifices that so many had made.

The little bears thought too about all of the brave key workers still going to work in the midst of the pandemic and felt that perhaps those who gave up so much during the war years would be proud of them.

Planning All Age

Another All Age planning session

Rev’d Suz, her teddy friends and Jack get together to work out the craft activity based on today’s Bible passage.  The cotton wool balls will come in handy given that today is Good Shepherd Sunday.  You can find out more by watching the service on our Facebook page at

Let’s hope the Vicarage Cat doesn’t get in the way!
