The Puppets Return!

A Happy & Blessed New Year to one and all!

Every January, at church, we treat ourselves to a visit from the Coverdale Puppets. The Coverdale puppet theatre is run by Ian & Elaine Coules from Kids-Inc Ministries in Liverpool. Their vision is to present Bible stories and Christian teaching in an exciting, fun and relevant way to both children and adults, using muppet style puppets. Ian says: “We then aim to stimulate these people to read the stories for themselves.”

Ian and Elaine’s vision is being fulfilled in several different sectors: in schools, in churches and through community projects. Every December, they put on hundreds of performances for school children across the North West, including an annual visit to Thelwall Junior School. In fact, I had the privilege of watching the Coverdale Puppets with the rest of the children when they visited school last month. The show was inspiring and hilarious at the same time!

I’m really pleased to announce that the Coverdales will be performing the same show at our Family Service on Sunday, 4th January at 10am. It’s really worth seeing, and you’ll receive a very warm welcome (from humans & puppets!). I’ll also have the pleasure of being able to wish you a Happy New Year in person.
