'The Narnia Experience
You may have heard of and maybe even enjoyed reading The Chronicles of Narnia books by C.S Lewis. Some may even have seen the more recent films with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe being the most famous of these.
Set during World War II bombings of London, four English siblings are evacuated to a country house where they will be safe. One day Lucy finds a wardrobe that transports her to a magical winter world called Narnia. She soon returns with her siblings Peter, Susan and Edmund. There they join the magical lion, Aslan, in the fight against the evil White Witch.
The Narnia Experience is a live, interactive theatre experience and we want to bring Lucy's journey, as she walked through the wardrobe, to the people of Govan.
Our Govan Cross building will be transformed, as part of the Govan Loves Christmas celebrations, into the land of Narnia, a place where 'it is always winter but never Christmas.' Groups will be guided through the story of good conquering evil and feel part of the action.
We want all groups and people in the church, and in Govan to feel part of this event, so stay tuned for ways that you can be involved.
Knitting Needles at the Ready
Yarn Bombing is the activity of covering objects or structures in public places with decorative knitted or crocheted material, as a form of street art. It has become increasingly popular as a way to brighten up our surroundings, and we hope to use it as a publicity stunt to promote The Narnia Experience.
We need a great number of winter woollens such as scarves, hats, gloves and mittens to decorate Central Govan. We are looking for keen knitters, crocheters and knitting groups to take part to decorate local landmarks, trees, lamposts and railings.
If you would like to take part please speak to Jamie Goodwin, or donate your items to Govan & Linthouse Parish by November 7th 2018, You never know Mary Barbour could be sporting your knitted creation.'
