Remember Crocodile Man??

On Sunday 7th April Chris ran and conquered the Paris Marathon. We are happy to report he finished the gruelling course in just over 4 hours and 48 seconds. We are so proud of him. He was supported by two of our Get Sported camp children who each donated a pound. Chris on learning this said "I was really touched. I guess they did understand generosity on the first day!" Chris has now raised just over £500 for Get Sported and if you would like to sponsor Chris please click here

Get Sported Camps Easter Update
During the first week of the Easter Holidays WSM Bristol piloted a new Get Sported children's holiday camp in partnership with Resound Church in Mangotsfield. To find out how God had his hand on this new camp click Here
The second week we were back at the Park. 
Had an interesting but good three days running sports camp this week” was how one of our Young Leaders described her experience on camp. One of our children said “camp was awesome and amazing”. Last week 34 children attended our Sporting Star week.  Going into camp we knew it was going to be a challenging week. Many of our pre booked children had ADHD and we had been advised by our local Primary School that we were being sent some vulnerable children. More Info..

Food for Thought: John 1: 1-5 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not". (KJV)
