On Sunday 18th we had a joy filled service celebrating the beginning of a new academic year. Stickers and bag tag where with messages of peace where blessed along with the back packs of those returning to school.
We prayed for all places of learning, and for those who are denied education, all pupils and students, teachers and support staff. Those who struggle with school or find it difficult. The Rector reminded us that the God of peace is with us during times of joy and times of worry, the bag tags and stickers will help us remember that God’s peace can help us through any tough times, will be a reminder to give thanks for the good times and an encouragement to help others who are finding school life difficult.
