Special Religious Education Development
Who are we?
We are a small group of Soecial Friends and helpers.
What we do?
Our aim is to deliver a religious education programme to our friends with Special Needs, to let them share their faith together in a way that suits them and to learn from them th epurpose God has for all of us.
We do this by meeting every Monday ( in term time) one week preparation week and the next is with our Special Friends. Our meetings last ablut 2 hours, starting with 30 minutes of quiet activity, then we proceed to a Holy area for our lesson and finishing with agape (a sharing of a small supper), a bit of a chat and a few songs.
Where do we meet?
In the McAllister Hall on a Monday night from 7.15pm - 9.15pm.
What do we need?
We work on a one -one basis with our Special Friends and it would be lovely to expand our group to include more Special Friends. In order to do that, we need more helpers. All our heloers would say that they receive more from this than they give.
All that is needed is a desire to share faith and love with each other and a commitment for two hours on a monday night. We welcome anyone who would like to know about SPRED, and invite any parishioners with Special Needs to acome along and find out more about us.
If at any time you feel you could commit yourself as a helper, please contact us. Newcomers are always welcome and also if you know anyone with Special Needs that could benefit, please contact any member of the SPRED group.
