Weekly Update

Thank you to everyone who came to our Presentation Evening and AGM last Monday. We had a great time although it was sad to announce another change in our team. Sadly Lee will be leaving us at the end of this term to go into teaching. We celebrated his time at PACE with a poem written by Lisa, accompanied by lots of photos from over the years. Please pray for the team as we prepare for this change and for new members of the team. Also pray for Lee as he prepares to start his new job in September.

This week our primary team will be visiting Castel, La Houguette and Vauvert to deliver our puppet assembly. Our OT Mini courses will be going into Week 3 at St Mary and St Michael and Week 4 at Forest.

BOLT clubs are now into their ninth week looking at “Jesus Rose Again”.

The senior team are visiting St Sampsons High for a set of lessons on the Christian view on poverty. They explore questions such as: What is poverty? What does the bible say about poverty? And how are Christians responding to the needs of those in poverty today? The lesson is centered around several interactive activities to engage the students in thinking more deeply about this important topic.

In senior lunch clubs this week we are discussing being brave. Taking inspiration from the film Paddington 2, where Paddington bravely confronts someone in order to make the lives of those around him much better. Further to this we explore the disciples’ change in attitude before and after Jesus has been raised from the dead. They went from being terrified that they would be next to die, to going out and proclaiming the good news of Jesus. In life sometimes it might be easier to follow the crowd but often standing up for what you believe to be right can make a massive difference.
