Hot Cross Bun Club 2001

During Holy Week 2001 (the week before Easter) up to 50 different children attended the Hot Cross Bun Club organised and supervised by the Vicar, (Revd Ian Finn) and members of the churches of the Bansfield Benefice. Children came from all seven parishes and beyond to take part in activities based around the themes of Holy Week. As usual the children met in Wickhambrook church hall.

The Children made a series of banners depicting the events of Holy Week. This one shows Pilate with Jesus after his arrest
This banner depicts many of the major themes of Holy Week, the donkey Jesus rode, the palms that were laid at his feet and the three crucifixes where he was left to die with two other men.
This banner celebrates the fact that Christ rose from the dead on the third day, Easter Sunday.
This final poster shows Peter as a fisher of men who took charge when Jesus ascended to God.
The children made a lovely Easter garden which remained in church for the duration of the Easter season. It shows the place where Jesus was crucified.
The children also made a number of posters that were displayed in church, and added a welcome splash of colour to the baptistery.
