.      Roadshows (Ruth Norris) " Huge thank you to the Roadshow Team the children had a fantastic day.  It was wonderful to see all the children so actively engaged in learning in such an interactive and multisensory way.  As a staff it was wonderful to be able to participate in this learning as well as to step back at times and observe the children's reactions to the various approaches and activities. "

.      Sticky Faith (Lianne Smith) This Wednesday, 9th October from 7.00pm (for refreshments) until 9.45pm at St. George's Church, Britwell, Long Furlong Drive, Slough, SL2 2LX  there is to be a Scripture Union training event in partnership with CCiS called 'Sticky Faith' and is part of a regional tour going on in the autumn. "Life long disciples of Jesus - that's what we all want for the children and young people we know. So why do so many give up on their faith in their teenage years or as they enter adult life? What strategies should we employ so that faith matures rather than dies? Research from the Fuller Youth Institute suggests that it's never too early or too late to start developing a faith that grows and lasts - 'Sticky Faith'. The 'Sticky Faith Tour'  will give delegates an opportunity to look at the research and its conclusions. Together we will explore the implications of this for parents, teachers, youth and children's workers and churches as we look at how we can help children and young people to develop a faith that will last a lifetime." Tickets are £8.00 Details and online bookings are on this link http://www.scriptureunion.org.uk/YourCommunity/RegionalTeams/SouthEastTeam/StickyFaith-establishingafaiththatlasts/1803117.id
