The whole school shared a special worship together in St Mary’s Church, led by Father Steffan. Each class had beautifully decorated a Harvest box filled with generous donations from our families.
Thanks to everyone who contributed, the food will be shared with LEWCAS to help support asylum seekers.
Father Steffan helped us to reflect on everything that we should be grateful for in our lives. Children from
Year 5 delivered the Bible readings and used drama to retell the parable of the ten lepers. At the end of the worship, Father Steffan blessed a special Harvest loaf, kindly made by one of the parishioners. This Harvest loaf was shared by all of the children.
The children and staff from KS2 took part in a Eucharist service, held at St Mary’s Church. Father Steffan explained the significance of the bread and wine, making reference to our Bible reading about the Last Supper. Three children shared their prayers, before the bread and wine were brought up to the altar by two Year 6 children, to be blessed by Father Steffan.
The children had been prepared for this special worship and all children who have already received First Communion were invited to receive the bread. The other children, with parental permission, were offered a blessing. Many thanks to Father Steffan (and Father Steve who helped to organise and prepare the children) as well as Mother Sarah from the Good Shepherd Church, who joined us for this very special Worship.
