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 web-series The Green Door introduces you to our resident puppets, Barley the dog and Nosebag the dragon, and follows them on their adventures in over 60 episodes! What do these two friends get up to? Gardening, arts and crafts, creating a personal box of happiness, farming inside (yes, that's right!), hatching chicks in the hatchery, baking... and dealing with the everyday things we're experiencing apart but together during the coronavirus: staying connected to grandparents in care homes, to our friends in separate households, having parents working from home, and what to do when it's just too much time together! They also make visits to the Beeton Cupboard food bank, the Beeton Garden, and go behind the scenes of Fabulous Fridays! All this and more is explored alongside lay pastor Jenni on our Youtube Channel.
