The miracle at a wedding in Cana – when Jesus turned water into wine – was the inspiration for a series of drama and crafts activities led by Spalding-based threatre group Act II for four churches within the Benefice of the Elloe Stone Parishes.
Children in Moulton, Moulton Chapel, Whaplode and Holbeach St Johns performed half-term plays focused on wedding ceremonies, recreated the water into wine story through drama, devised their own wedding music with instruments including samba drums and spent time making pictures of water turned into wine.
Act II director Karl Gernert said: “There was a real sense of community at each of the events because the children weren’t all from the same primary schools, which meant they made new friends, and we had 11-year-olds working with and helping four-year-olds.
“All of the children enjoyed learning the old story in a new way.”
Act II has worked with the benefice for some years and its activities are held under the heading of The Oasis Club.
