Budding young authors from a church in Kennington have been making their own bedtime stories just for grown-ups, writes Simon Throssell…

Every evening during Lent, children aged 3-14-years-old from St Anselm’s church have been writing and performing their own short stories.

There have been tales of scary woodland walks, missing hats and even friendly ‘Eggits’.

The project was the idea of youth minister Suzette Aagaard who said: “We are a warm and supportive community at St Anselm’s and not seeing each other in person every Sunday has really started to take its toll on many members of our congregation.

“As we are very blessed with wonderfully imaginative young people I thought it would be a lovely idea for the children to read a bedtime story to the adults as a way of lifting their spirits.”

The bedtime stories are available at
