Family Story Cafe – Tenbury Wells

Once a month on the 3rd Sunday 3-5pm the Methodist Hall at Tenbury becomes the Family Story Cafe. It does what it says on the tin – a space for families, a story time, all with coffee and cake.

It is a joint project by the Methodists and St Mary’s, the parish church using skills from both congregations .

You can relax with a drink and chat, or get involved in the activities provided – no age limits on the creative tables! The story time presents Bible stories in an interactive way using Godly Play material which we loan from the Diocesan Resource Centre in Ludlow.

The vision was for the churches to support families in the area offering a low cost but stimulating environment for adults and children alike. We don’t charge but invite donations to cover expenses, which are fairly low with lovely homemade cakes donated by church members.

Although it is still very new (starting July 2011) we are getting to know new families. If anyone wants to find out more contact Rev Helen Roberts helen_goolwa@ hotmail.com or via the circuit office.
