God made the world and He created humans ‘in His image’. He gave humans instructions on how to live and a job to do.

We will be looking at Jesus’ humanity whilst living in a broken world.

Jesus died and rose again to save the whole world (not ‘just’ the people, but all of creation).
The New Heaven and the New Earth

In the workshop we will be exploring God’s creation (the environment (plants, trees, etc) and us as people) and how we can look after it (the environment and us as people) well. We will be doing this in different creative ways, so there should be an activity that everyone will like.
