WELCOME to the Purbeck Deanery’s blog for Children’s and Young People’s leaders, for sharing ideas and experience in providing ministry for young people and their families in our communities. We hope you’ll find something interesting and useful here as together we work to communicate God’s love to a new generation.

Please pray for this ministry – may God bless you for your interest.

John Wood, Rural Dean of Purbeck

"Lord Jesus Christ, you taught us that we must become like children in order to enter God’s kingdom, and you took children in your arms to bless them; guide us as we work to bring your special blessing to the young people in our communities in Purbeck; through your Spirit, give us wisdom to know how to do this; give us strength to undertake the task; give us compassion and a caring heart to reach out with your love, that your kingdom may grow and all rejoice in your blessing; for your glory’s sake. Amen"

Nativity Trail at West Lulworth

All through December, a Nativity Set visited houses in West Lulworth.

Wherever it went a sheep was left behind so that people could follow a trail of sheep to the church for Christmas Day service.

This is what Lotte Wilde thought about its visit to their home:

When the Nativity set arrived, we had to arrange it. My brother, Finn and I put the manger in the middle of the stable, Mary and Joseph either side, the wise men on the right and the shepherds on the left and the angels on the top. We chose 'George' the sheep and hung it on our Christmas tree. For the next few days we had people and other children looking through our window to see what our sheep was called! It was a great Christmassy thing to do!
