Children and their parents and carers enjoyed three afternoons playing outside using a church car park in Horsham during the summer holidays.

Inspired by the successful national ‘Playing out’ initiative, Brighton Road Baptist Church put a temporary ban on cars. By making this large space available for safe play, local youngsters enjoyed scooting, skipping, hopscotch, giant junk modelling and traditional playground games.

Brighton Road Baptist Church also repeated their popular ‘Holiday at Home’ for older citizens who would not otherwise have a break from their homes. The many activities on offer included baking and armchair aerobics!

Organisers Pauline Jepps and Alison Edwards commented: “As Christians we aim to live out our faith in the local community and we believe that this time together enables us to show God’s love for each person in a practical way.”

With thanks to Ian Rose. If your church reaches out into your community, do send a photo and brief details.
