Cheadle Hulme Methodist Need Your Help

12 May 2018

Cheadle Hulme Methodist Church calls upon the local community for assistance to stage their presentation of The Fisherman’s Tale in church – can you help?

In association with Bible Encounter Trust, they present The Fisherman’s Tale in the Methodist Church, inviting local schools for sessions between  12th – 22nd June.

Each session sees the children enter a labyrinth, transporting them first 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,’ they need voluntary help in setting up the church.
