Pineapple Play and Stay

Pineapple Play and Stay continues to grow and flourish. There are regularly 60 parents/carers and children at the Church of the Ascension on a Thursday morning (10-11.30am) in the heart of the Pineapple Estate. We are reaching out to the local community sharing God’s love and grace, with a theme each week centred on God’s teachings which encompass craft, story and songs. God is at the heart of all that we do and our vision is for local families and communities to know his compassion and caring nature.

There are new faces coming each week which is encouraging, and a couple of the parents have prayed and shared their faith whilst chatting over a hot drink and very good cakes. A growing number of fathers are also attending and are building up good relationships in the midst of play-dough and puzzles. There are always challenges around setting up, but through God’s grace enough volunteers arrive to be ready on time.

Pineapple Play and Stay is for anyone pre-school aged and their parent/carer who enjoys playing, singing, stories, eating cake and chatting. If you have a spare couple of hours on a Thursday morning, are passionate about children and families and have a heart for praying with them, please speak to Sam.
