Since 1989 Question Mark Drama Group have been visiting local primary schools and running drama workshops with year 6 classes using Bible stories.
A play is written based on an Old Testament or New Testament story, and everyone in the class has a part to play.
The Question Mark team (6 or 7) arrive at school at 8.30 am and set up the scenery and have a prayer time. They meet the class at 9 am and put the children into small groups. The groups (narrators, actors, dancers, puppeteers, etc.) practise their parts until 10 am. Then the whole play, which contains lots of humour, sound effects and colourful costumes, is rehearsed twice.
At about 11.15am the class present the play to the rest of the school, followed by an appropriate song with signing. A member of Question Mark draws the morning to a close with a prayer.
Question Mark is really privileged to be welcomed into all the local primary schools.
Prayer support is vital. For more information on this or joining the team please contact Kate Bagnall on 07516916438.

On a primary level we work with the local church to offer larger scale events and to train and resource volunteers.
Stafford Branch of the Gideons International
Our aim is to distribute Bibles to give people the opportunity to read it for themselves, perhaps for the first time, and to discover God in a personal way. The Gideons place Bibles or New Testaments in many areas including schools, hotels, hospitals, care homes, medical centres, student accommodation, prisons, etc. In addition we make personal presentations of God's Word.
Each year we present personal copies of the New Testament and Psalms to children in thousands of British secondary schools and to many university and college students. We make personal presentations to medical personnel and uniformed services - Armed Forces, Police, Ambulance and Fire. We place New Testaments at hospital bedsides.

STAFFORD ACTION GROUP of The Bible Society
BIBLE SOCIETY STAFFORD ACTION GROUP
Bible Society is working to give to every person across the world the joy of hearing God’s Word to each one in the language of their own hearts. We believe that the Bible transforms individual lives and transforms societies when the relevance and power of the Bible is set free. Bible Society achieves its mission through Bible availability, accessibility and credibility. Bible Society was founded in 1804 and the Stafford Action Group has been supporting their mission for over 200 years.
Stafford Action Group not only raises money for Bible Society but is also a passionate advocate for the Bible, encouraging local churches, Christians and schools to value the Bible as the Word of God and to live by its teachings, and then even to embrace and believe the Gospel of hope in Jesus Christ. The Bible shows us all how to LOVE STAFFORD as GOD LOVES STAFFORD.

Christian Motorcyclists Association
CMA is the UK arm of an international Christian Missionary Organisation that seeks to be involved in every aspect of the biking world. Our mission is to share the love of God, as shown through Jesus Christ, with those who ride motorcycles. Our work takes us into a subculture, the world of motorcyclists or bikers; people with different views who are often shunned or treated as outcasts. Our objective is to see all motorcyclists come to know Christ and then go on to an active life within a local church. As Christians we know there is little as exciting as riding a motorcycle…as bikers we have discovered that there is nothing as fulfilling as being a Christian. The CMA Staffs & Shropshire Branch meets at Rising Brook Baptist Church on the first Monday of every month at 7:45pm

We exist because God so loved the world (Stafford included) that he gave his one and only son (Jesus Christ) that whoever believes in him shall...have eternal life. We love because he first loved us.
