Spill the Beans Issue 18

Christmas is just past and already eyes turn towards the next big festival in the church. Certainly my mind has been on it a lot over the last few weeks as the next issue of Spill the Beans has been coming together into its final form. Issue 18 covers the season of Lent, Easter all the way to Pentecost Sunday, 14 February 2016 to 15 May 2016 with ideas for Holy Week included in that.

A huge thank you to all the creative team who added their contributions for this issue. We are already working away on the summer issue at the moment, which is going to be packed!

For current Beanies you alread know what a fabulous resource this is, created by folks here in Scotland. If you have not yet, but are intrigued, have a look at this sample.
