The Good Book Shop in Donegall Street, Belfast, hosted its first ever Children’s Storyteller Day on Easter Saturday.
Around 20 children took part in various fun–filled activities throughout the day.
Helping at the event were youth leaders from Derry and Raphoe Diocese who did face painting and read stories from a selection of children’s books. Others involved in the day included Julie Currie who is Down and Dromore Diocesan Children’s Officer, and the puppet ministry team from St Brigid’s Parish, Mallusk who put on a special show for the occasion.
The climax of the day came when the Rev Adrian McCartney (leader of Boring Wells, a Fresh Expression of Church) arrived with his dog Shep! Adrian, who has recently published a children’s book entitled ‘Sheppy: A stray dog finds a home,’ brought the star of the book into the shop to meet the children, and read a short extract.
The Children’s Storyteller Day was one of various events to take place in The Good Book Shop this year to mark its 10th Anniversary
