There’s still time to have a go at the search for the sheep lost in Blackrod. Based on the story of the Good Shepherd, 10 sheep are out and about in shops and public places in Blackrod.

We have read in the Bible many times how Jesus is the Good Shepherd and we are his sheep, and he will take care of us and keep us safe. In the time when Jesus lived on earth, the shepherds looked after their sheep out in the countryside both day and night. Each sheep had its own name and they knew their shepherd’s voice and followed him. The shepherd would make sure none of his sheep were lost and guard them from wild animals.

You can read the Bible story of the Good Shepherd in the New Testament at  John, Chapter 10.

If you want to join in, you can pick up an entry form from church (see opening times on cover) and go in search o fthe sheep. Each sheep has a name – write it down on the entry form, with the places where you found them.

Then give in the entry form at St Katharine’s by the closing date of Sunday 8th December. You could bring it to the Christingle service at 4pm. The winning entry from will be drawn out of the box at the end of the Christingle service and there will be a prize!
