Monday 6th April 2020


Hello Children, 
I could hear children playing whilst sat in my garden today and it reminded me of your joyful noise in the playground. I spent some time praying for each class, the teachers, the support staff and everyone else at the school. What a brilliant bunch you all are. 
This Sunday is Palm Sunday and that start Holy Week as we journey towards Good Friday and Easter. Noah and I have made a YouTube film about how to make an Easter Garden and we would encourage you to make one and use it in this special week to think about what Easter really means. 
There is also a really great film made by some children a few years ago which tells the Easter story. I think you would really enjoy it, you can find it on YouTube here.
As a church we have been thinking really hard about how to help families and children enjoy learning more about the Easter story and I am delighted to tell you that at 3pm on Good Friday (9th April) we are hosting a Messy Easter Online using zoom. It is going to be great fun and you can join us using this link You will be able to see what you need to really get stuck in at, that is also the place to go for services online and other resources. 
Now I know how much you enjoy Rend Collective songs and how much you LOVE the song Resurrection Day  this is a perfect song for Easter Sunday why not sing it loud and proud, teach all your family. 
"Because You're risen I can rise, Because You're living I’m alive, Because Your cross is powerful, Because You rose invincible, I can get up off the floor"
Remember God loves you more than you can possibly imagine, you are treasured, you are special and I thank God for each and every one of you. 
Every blessing,

Hello Children, 

I have been thinking of you often and praying for you each day, I hope you are staying safe, enjoying learning, having fun and helping your grownups.
How are you getting on with the new action song? It's very catchy isn't it!  We had a great service on line on Sunday and sang My lighthouse with the actions, it was new to some people but everyone got involved and enjoyed it as much you do. 
Next week is Holy Week and the final part of our journey to Easter. I have found a great book and you can hear me reading it on youtube here. I have also found some activity pages linked to this special book which you can find at the bottom this page. 
Sadly due to copyright issues I am not able to record me singing a blessing over you but please know these words are being sung over you and your families each and every day.
The Lord bless you,
The Lord keep you,
The light of His face shine upon you.
The Lord bless you,
The Lord keep you,
The light of His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you,
and be gracious to you,
May He turn his face to you
and bring you peace,
May He turn his face to you
and bring you peace.
Stay safe, know you are loved and that where ever you are, whatever is happening, you can talk to God. 
Every blessing,
Reverend Becky 
Hello Children, 
I hope you and your families are doing well. 
I have missed doing collective worship with you all and have been looking at some more fun action songs for us to enjoy worshipping God together when we go back to the classrooms. 
From the same people that brought us My Lighthouse (Rend Collective) we have some more brilliant worship songs to try. The first is called Not Afraid. It has some great actions which you will see in the clip and I know you will all enjoy it.
Another great worship song we will be using is King of Me it talks about some very familiar bible stories like David and Goliath and Jonah and the whale. 
With both of these worship songs we hear about a God who is bigger than any fear, can hold any of our worries  and loves us way more than we often understand. They are also very catchy and think you will be humming them all day :-)
This Sunday 
As we can't meet together in church buildings at present the church family of St. Giles, St. Nicholas and All Saints' are meeting online on Sundays at 10:30am. You can join us on Zoom by using this link and to play along with our service challenge you will need 60 pieces of lego of any variety, shape and colour or play dough, clay or plasticine. We will be sharing Holy Communion, hear from the bible, prayer and sing including My Lighthouse! 
Every blessing, 
Revd. Becky
