A Child’s Ministry

Lauren , aged eight, was concerned about her local community being isolated and abandoned enduring the Covid -19 struggles.  She asked her parents if she could visit local people and play a few pieces of music on her violin, read a few poem that  she has written, read a prayer and offer them with a homemade cake, while respecting social distancing.

Lauren has been doing this every weekend.

Get to know Truth – By Lauren
Hello, my name is Truth
It’s nice to meet you
I’m the emotion that sits inside of your heart
Weighting up right and wrong
I see everything, from all heights
High to low, friend or foe
Truth can make you sad
Truth can be daunting
Truth can be profound
Truth can help you believe in yourself
Truth is in us all.

Isolation – by Lauren Kirtley
What does it mean?
Locked up and nobody to see
When will it end, nobody knows
No friends to see, no play dates to go, no shops to visit and no toys to buy
No teachers at school, just on a screen,
No sounds of chatter, just silence and me
Birds are outside, playing and having fun
I say, come inside, they wink and they fly
The garden is changing, the buds are opening and nature has not stopped.
I think it’s our turn to be locked up inside and take stock!
