Heather writes: On the keeping contact front we send cards for birthdays 1-4 then invite to Sunday school, junior church – whatever you prefer to call it. We also send invites to Mothering Sunday, harvest and Christmas services and any other suitable service or children’s activity (we do half term activity days – bit like messy church but they were happening before messy church so we’ve stuck with our name which is known) . Get more of a response – not a lot but a little.
