In the past week we have started our new primary assembly. This time we are looking at food and how we are very blessed to have so much but that there are some people in the world who don’t have as much as we do. We use the story of Feeding the Five Thousand to illustrate how the little that the boy gave and the power of Jesus made a huge difference to many many people. We conclude by challenging the children to do something in the next week to help other people. That could be sharing their food with someone, baking someone a cake or buying an extra tin of baked beans and putting it in the food donation bins. We encourage them that even a little act of kindness goes a long way.
Our many many OT Mini courses are going well and Phil and the team are working hard! Last week for the first time, Phil started a course at La Rondin which has gone down very well with the pupils there. We’re excited to see the developments of this relationship with the school and the children there. St Mary and St Michael’s new course started yesterday which takes us to seven courses running at the same time! Please keep Phil, the team and also these schools in your prayers!
In BOLT clubs we’ve moved on to looking into the life of Jesus. We’ve discovered that he came to do good and this week have looked at why he died for us. Using a bit of science, we show the children how Jesus washes away our sins and forgives us.
In senior lunch clubs we have continued looking at things in the news and have had some great discussions with the students. We have looked at the impact of Brexit, the outbreak of Coronavirus and climate change. As the end of term draws closer we will look at the Easter story and the events that took place over 2000 years ago and how they still have an impact on the world today!
