Contagious, a Christian youth charity, is hosting Express It! activity sessions on Tuesday, March 29, and Wednesday, March 30, at St James’s United Reformed Church, in Pottergate, Alnwick.

Workshops will be held daily.

Chris Hudson, of the Bible Reading Fellowship, on Tuesday, will host a drum and percussion workshop with an Easter story theme on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Libby Redman, a soul singer from York, will leading the young people in renditions of Gospel songs connected to Easter.

Libby will also be performing songs from her second album, titled So Good, at Alnwick Cricket Club at 7.30pm.

Claire Mead, a youth and schools worker for Contagious, said: “It is going to be a great couple of days.

“We are really pleased that both Chris and Libby are able to join us for the Express It! sessions.

“There will also be Easter crafts on offer, Easter games and a youth café and prayer space run by some of the young people that come along to one of our youth groups, with the support of volunteers from local churches.”

The sessions are open to children in school years 5 to 11 and cost £3 per person, including refreshments.

Tickets for the evening event are £4 for adults, £2 for children and £10 for families of up to six.
