On 6 April we welcomed Westbury Junior School to All Saints’ Church for their Easter Service before they broke up for the Easter holiday,
On Wednesday 6 April for their Easter service we welcomed about 250 children and 30 adults from Westbury Junior School into our church. The children had prepared readings from the Easter story, prayers and some wonderful singing. During the service they had prepared a prayer or a thought about Easter or about the situation in Ukraine. They presented them in a basket at the front of the church.
Mr Percy, year 3 teacher and RE advisor, had baked some authentic Ukrainian bread called Pashka. The children had decorated some Easter eggs. We heard about some of the fundraising events they had organized for the school to raise money for the Ukrainian refugees. It was wonderful to our church full of children engaging with the Easter story.
We look forward to welcoming Westbury Junior School back to church very soon!
