Emmanuel Church are busy planning a free Family Fun Day on Easter Saturday (April 4).

With Spring in the air and Easter upon us it’s time to make the most of the longer, brighter evenings.

Emmanuel Church is inviting everyone along for a day of family fun at Lurgan Park.

Highlights on the day will include Blackberry Farm, the little mobile farm which brings with it lots of animals and story-telling for all ages to enjoy.

As well as that, there will be an Easter Egg hunt, bouncy castles, face painting, crafts, music, a BBQ and much more!

Alongside these exciting Easter celebrations, they are running an Easter Colouring Competition, and are encouraging children to draw a lovely Easter picture for them. Bring the picture along to the Fun Day on 4 April, and they all will be put on display.

The competition will be split into two age groups: P1-P3, and P4 - P7. There will be fantastic prizes for the winning entrants! If you didn’t receive a competition from your school, please call at the Emmanuel Office on Castle Lane, Lurgan, and they will be happy to provide one.

The Fun Day is completely free of charge and will start at 1:30pm on Saturday 4 April in Lurgan Park.

On Sunday 5 April, they will be showing a new film entitled ‘The Cross’, which has been put together by world-renowned evangelist, Billy Graham, and several US artists. The DVD’s release coincided with Billy Graham’s 96th birthday, and has so far been shown across the USA, Canada and various countries worldwide. During the showing, we will also be hosting a kids’ party for children aged P1 - P7.

Everyone is welcome to come along and join Emmanuel on Easter Sunday for the film, which will be followed by ice-cream and donuts.
