PACE Update

Happy New Year! We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year!

We’re back and excited for what 2022 will bring us. Each term we try to hold a Quiet Morning – a time for us as a team to receive teaching as we give out so much in our work. This time we headed to St Saviours and Sarah-Jane Allen hosted us in the lovely upper room of their Hall. SJ led us through the theme of choices and looking back at how God has been with us through difficult choices and how we can be encouraged that when things seem tough, He is always with us. One verse we read was Psalm 139:7-10:

“Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.”

Because of restrictions in schools, we are unable to restart our lunch clubs and assemblies at least for the time being. In response to this we have sent our primary schools our virtual assembly that we made during lockdown last year. This has been received well once again and we’re pleased that some of the schools are using it. If you would like to watch our assembly you can find it here!

We’re very pleased that we are able to go into some schools for lessons and OT Mini/ NT Mini. This week we have started new OT Mini courses at La Houguette with Nigel, Sarah-Jane and Eleanor, Castel with Phil and Forest with Sarah and Sian. Phil has also started an NT Mini course at Beechwood. We’re having to adapt a little but Week 1 has gone well so far!

Please pray for the schools, staff and students as they adjust to the new measures and get used to changes in their day to day activities.
