Love Life, Live Lent ~ Christian Mission Week
A great week filled with events to mark the start of Lent.
We kicked the week off with our ‘Pancake Party.’ Students enjoyed flipping, and of course, eating pancakes! They had the chance to learn what Shrove Tuesday is all about. As well as this, students had the opportunity to write encouraging messages to staff which definitely made many teachers’ day! This was followed by students dedicating themselves to service, either through litter picking around the local area or attending a centre aimed at supporting those with special educational needs. Students commented how moved they were seeing the work that takes place at Martin Jackaman Centre on Robins Wood Way, in Aspley and many have already shown an interest in work experience there. Finally, our prayer event, ‘Breakfast with God’ was a huge success as well with many staff and students making an effort to arrive at school a bit earlier in order to praise God and take time to reflect during this season of Lent. ‘Breakfast with God’ will be running every Thursday throughout Lent and starts at 8am in the Chapel. Breakfast is provided so it is a wonderful way to start the day!
Over the next few weeks we also collecting food for those in need. If you would like to send in any tinned food, rice, pasta, UHT milk etc. it would be very gratefully received. We will make sure to let you know how much we have collected so watch this space!
