Austin Janes Team Vicar of the Church of the Resurrection in Grovehill, Hemel Hempstead has written and illustrated a Christmas poem resource for very young children, called Spider’s First Christmas. Written in a very simple way reminiscent of Incy Wincy Spider, children can see that whatever changes come, God is travelling with us and we don’t need to be afraid.
The A6 booklet is printed in full colour and makes an ideal gift for nursery and primary school age children. The books are £1.50 each but bulk discounts are available. A power Point is also available for projecting in assemblies or services. contact Revd Austin Janes for an order form. All proceeds go towards supporting the ongoing ministry of the church in Grovehill and Woodhall Farm,
