There will be a Puppets Workshop here at Buckingham Street on Saturday 5th March led by Ian and Elaine Coules of Coverdale Puppets. The workshop starts at 2.pm. It will be followed by a faith tea and then a short presentation plus the 'Circuit Band'. It closes at 7pm. All are welcome, especially the young and young at heart. Rev Steve Watts has more information. Contact him by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone; 01296 747892 or mobile 07940882886. There is no charge for the workshop but please bring food to share.
The workshop will be a very hands on time where the basics of puppeteering will be shown and can be put into practice by those who come. It is for all and will be a great fun time where new skills can be learnt. They will also show different ways that puppets can be used to share the gospel in a very visual way to all ages. After the workshop food/snacks will be provided before a time when those who have been at the workshop can invite others to come to a performance in which everyone will be involved, to show the skills they have learnt and how they can put those into practice.
Ian and Elaine Coules are both full time Chrisitian children's workers and have been for 22 years. Four years previous to that they were youth workers with a Christian Mission Organisation. As children's workers they work around the country leading holiday clubs, family services, outreach events and kids clubs. Also they run a puppet theatre company which goes into schools throughout the Northwest. In this they seek to bring stories from the Bible in a very visual way to many children. Ian and Elaine do assembly length Bible stories throughout the year in the schools but at certain times, like Christmas spend four weeks doing about 100 shows. Coverdale Puppets also run workshops in the schools and after schools puppet clubs. With the puppets they are also asked to a lot of fun days, particularly during the summer to share the gospel through songs and short evangelistic scripts.
