We had a great International cafe last night – with four new people from Lithuania joining the regulars.
Each week we start by drinking coffee and tea, eat snacks and chatting. Then there is an informal English lesson based around a theme which leads towards watching a clip from the Jesus Film. We found some great material to do gospel ESOL lessons using the Jesus Film, which we are adapting for our cafe.
This week Basia took the theme, which was transport and time – so while the Non English speakers practiced telling the time, I learned the Lithuanian numbers from one to twelve! The whole team got involved one to one with people to help practice the time – so well done Corrie, Kath, Basia, Beth from the Baptist Church and Paul from London Road Methodist and to Tatiana who also helped translate along with her hubby David!
I took the Jesus Film clip which was Jesus staying at the Temple and spoke about how Jesus already knew he was God and Man and how significant that is for the Gospel to work.
Paul then finished up as usual by taking his guitar out and teaching us a song.
We worked hard last night, but had a lot of fun.
You’d be most welcome to join us at The International Cafe which meets at London Road Methodist Church at 7.30pm on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month.
