Year 6 led us in prayer and worship this morning on the theme of ‘Lord, Reign in me’, with a particular focus on Remembrance.
The children had written some beautiful reflections, and created some artwork, based on what they think Heaven is like and they shared these with us all. They told us that to get to Heaven all we have to do is follow Jesus’ commandments and love God and love our neighbour. They then dramatised the story of Lazarus and the rich man, and reflected on the meaning of it. A fantastic rendition of ‘All God’s Creatures Got a Place in the choir’ put a smile on every face, with requests of an encore from children in Reception Class, which Year 6 fulfilled at the end of the assembly as we were all leaving the hall.
The assembly finished with a short Remembrance Day reflection, including a minute’s silence and a group recitation of John McCrae’s ‘In Flanders Fields’.
Thank you Year 6 for a truly beautiful and moving assembly.
