Autumn 1 2019- Service
Our new value is 'service' - this will be leading up to our Harvest service where we will be bringing gifts in to help and serve others.
As always if your child has shown are Christian value at home then please let us know so we can share with the school in our Celebration worship.
Also in our worship we will be thinking about the ' Rule of life' initiative led by the Liverpool diocesan.
'Called to pray, read and learn. Sent to tell, serve and give'
Bishop Paul writes on the Liverpool Diocesan website....
Over the last couple of years we have been praying and thinking together about how this can best be done.
In the last three Diocesan Synods I have shared some of this thinking, and in particular I have spoken about the inner journey and the outer journey of faith – that is, the life of prayer and study of scripture which forms us inwardly, and the life of proclamation and service which forms us outwardly.
To live such a life is to be a disciple – one who learns from Jesus in the power of the Spirit, one who comes through Jesus to the Father, one who becomes an ambassador of the Kingdom of God, speaking of Jesus, serving and being present to those on the edge of things.
In taking the inner journey we are called by God to be close to Jesus in our hearts. In taking the outer journey we are sent by God to be close to Jesus in the world.
In the inner journey, we are called by God to pray, and to read scripture, and to learn from one another
In the outer journey we are sent by God to tell our friends about Jesus, and to serve those in need, and to give our lives, our time and talents and money, back to the God who has given us everything.
