Sarah is using her professional skills as an arts psychotherapist to serve at Trinity Children’s Centre in Mitchells Plain.
Trinity Children’s Centre is a Christian school that reaches out to children in a community full of violence, substance abuse, domestic conflict, poverty and inequality. The centre provides a space where children can hear the gospel, receive an education and grow in the love of God.
Sarah is using art and craft, music, drama, puppets and play therapy in her work with the children, alongside sharing the good news of Christ with them. She has also set up a sewing project for local women, which she hopes will lead to the development of a clothing label that can generate funds for gospel work.
Throughout lockdown, much of Sarah's work was put on hold. Instead, she produced daily puppet videos to help children deal with what was going on around them and introduce them to Jesus. View Sarah's videos here.
A lot has happened since I last wrote. I have now started doing the work that I came out here to do, although there are many obstacles that keep coming up.
Grade 6 class in the hall.
The school has re-opened. Half of each year group come in on Mondays and Tuesdays, and the other half on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The grade 6 class is the exception as they now meet in the hall with socially distanced desks so the whole class can come in every day.
