To kick off the Easter celebrations, St Denys’ Church in Sleaford held a day of free craft activities for young people.

Organised by curate Fr Ruben Angelici, it is part of an initiative to do more work with children and young people in the town.

The activities explored Easter and the events of Holy Week and there were games, activities and a hot meal.

Fr Angelici said: “We are trying to engage children and families in what we are doing.”

Former teacher Fr Angelici wanted it to be a safe, fun family day. He also wants to do something for older children - possibly regular pizza and film nights, and offer support to year 7 students in schools to aid transition from primary to secondary school.

Children have been asked what they would like to see happening at St Denys’ Church. Another idea is to offer after school homework clubs in the afternoon and lunch time clubs to offer pastoral help and friendship.
