St Paul's Putaruru - Let the Children Live
Let the Children Live Fund helped fund our Christmas Messy Church. We had 125 people attend , of which 70 were children . We even ran out of Nativity costumes for the first time ever .It was our largest Messy Church so far .Everyone enjoyed ham, new potatoes, salads , pavlova, jelly and ice cream for dinner .
The grant was also used to help buy Christmas gifts for our children and their parents. This year we gave out about 90 bags of gifts to families that struggle to provide extra for their children . It was very humbling and special for the people delivering the gifts . It was a blessing to be shown the vegetables they were growing for the first time
