'I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet...'

Easter Saturday found me doing a coffee morning crawl around the Stokesley Circuit! I had some 'Waiting in Wonder' booklets to deliver to the churches. These booklets are designed for the period between Ascension and Pentecost. During this time, we are encouraged to join in a global wave of prayer called Thy Kingdom Come. The booklets include art work from the Methodist Modern Art Collection. Look out for a copy in a church near you!

I started off my tour at Hutton Rudby. I was in time for the 'Happy Hour' 10am-11am at the Hub. However, I was tempted away from choosing a scone to have with my cup of tea by some fun looking Easter cupcakes. As I sat sipping my tea, I was invited to complete a slip with what I hoped for this Easter. This was going to be part of the Easter Sunday morning Breakfast service. Anyone could take part, even if you weren't able to go to the service. Feeling suitably inspired by my midmorning snack, I quickly penned something down.

Next stop was Great Ayton, where I chatted to some ladies who had been at Easby Guild. As I delivered the booklets, I caught sight of the decorated church and went to have a look. Everything seemed ready for Easter Sunday morning and I wondered what worship would be like. I had read in the notices that there would be a sunrise service on Roseberry Topping with egg rolling! It all sounded fun but I am not a morning bear! Instead I made do with admiring the church window sills.

I came to Stokesley last. The church was packed and there were stalls selling eggs of all shapes and sizes. There was even a table where you could have a go at making Easter bonnets! I had a quick look around and saw a few familiar faces. I was tempted to try on a bonnet but they all looked a bit big for me! I left feeling full of the joys of spring and excited to see whether I would get some Easter eggs this year!
