Lego Heroes in Hampshire
Beacon Church is a church plant on a major redevelopment area of Bordon, Hampshire initiated by the Anglican and Methodist churches, and led by Revd Dom Clarke and Deacon Janet Heys.
One of their initiatives to attract and welcome families is ‘Lego Heroes’. This has been running for about six months in a local theatre and attracting 40-50 children plus their parents. People are given a theme on arrival, and they collect a bowl full of Lego and get to work on their creation. As they build Lego, we build relationships with the families. We all gather with the end product and there is a short bible story, an action song, and prayer to finish.
Many of those who come along are new to us, but we are now seeing the same people returning again and again. And now a few of the dads have started meeting together out of a desire to know more about the Christian faith.
Praise be to God, we are blessed.
