The Green Door Web Series
It's an exciting (and confusing, and scary, and wonderful) time to be alive! With everything that's going on in the community and wider world today, our kids and parents sometimes need creative and fun ways to make sense of it all.
Our new web-series The Green Door introduces you to our resident puppets, Barley the dog and Nosebag the dragon, who are on a journey of making sense of the world and the coronavirus situation day by day, alongside our Lay Pastor Jenni Feheley. New episodes coming out each week! Follow our Facebook page
