Prayer Days

12 June 2022 (by office)

The Children visited our two local churches

The children experienced two  marvellous prayer days at the local churches.  Their first day was at  St Peters with "Prayers around the church" – exploring the altar, font, choir stalls to see what makes a church so special. They also had the opportunity to make a stained-glass window, try on the clerical robes and ring the bells. They enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about the church and why certain parts of the church and its symbolism is important to Christians.

The next day we attended Elmsett Methodist Church investigating the  "Lord's Prayer".  The prayer was split into sections and the children looked at the meaning and relevance creating crafts, sharing bread and making bookmarks as reminders. They enjoyed learning from the local community and it was great to see everyone participating and fully engaged.  A huge thank you to both churches for organising this for our children.
