Easter project for Baptist pastor
7:00am Thursday 17th April 2014 in News
MOST people spend their Easters eating far too many chocolate eggs.
But Derrick Morlan, pastor at Oxford Baptist Chapel in Albert Street, Jericho, has spent the past week building a 15ft wooden ark, as part of a Bible Club, which the chapel puts on for children over the holidays.
The 30-year-old said: “When I was studying to be a minister I paid my way through university working as a carpenter. But it wouldn’t float, it doesn’t even have a floor. It is to teach them about the story of Noah. We do games and crafts but part of the day is just about the Bible and we have people act out part of the story.”
