Currently Messy Church is taking a break. We amy be back soon!
The church has great links with Lakefield Church of England School which serves all the parishes within the benefice. There are about 190 pupils in the school and there are many opportunities and ways in which the church works with the school.
One of the children's favourite is Open the Book. Members of the church act out a Bible story involving some of the children and there is an opening and closing thought to encourage the children to think about the meaning of the story. The children really enjoy them and through these assemblies they have the opportunity to become familiar with Bible stories.
The Act of Worship is led once a week by a member of the LMT using the Values for Life materials produced by the Gloucester Diocese. The themes cover such things as Justice, Creativity, Creation, Thoughtfulness etc.
Significant festivals in the churches year are shared with the children via the Experience Events again devised by the Diocese. The festivals of Harvest, Christmas, Easter and Pentecost make up a rolling program over two years. The children visit one of the churches and work through stations which are set up to give children the opportunity to reflect up various aspects of the festival. Vist Past Events to see images from previous 'Experience' events.
There is a group which meets to pray for the school on the first Monday of the month at 9.00am in the school. Do join us in praying for the life and work of the school.
From time to time people on the LMT help with RE lessons talking about their beliefs, favourite Bible stories, and some of the special occasions in the church like Baptism.
