Ash Wednesday 1st March 2017
Wednesday this week was the first day of Lent in the Christian calendar. Children participated in a lovely service in the church introduced and concluded by our Curate, Ben Topham but led by some of our Year 6 children. The children learned about Jesus going into the wilderness and being tempted and had the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and temptations. Children were given an acrostic to remember based on the word LENT:
Rev'd Topham and Rev'd King performed the ashing ceremony and children were welcomed to approach the altar and and have a mark of ashes placed on their forehead. Tthe service provided a wonderful learning, spiritual experience for everyone.
