Little Neston members have taken three exciting assemblies into Neston and Woodfall Primary Schools. Each assembly focussed on one of the parables of Jesus. The first one, “The Kind Stranger” told the story of the Good Samaritan. The children particularly enjoyed joining in as the band of robbers and were very enthusiastic about beating up the traveller on the road to Jericho. The bruises went down eventually!
Our second story was “The Two Houses” with the wise man building his house upon the rock. We made the foolish man’s house out of cardboard boxes which we piled as high as possible. They made an amazing crash when they came tumbling down.
Our most recent assembly was on “The Unforgiving Servant” and focussed on Jesus’s story of the servant who was forgiven a huge debt but then sought to extract a small amount from a fellow servant.
We conclude each story with a song and a short meditation and prayer to reinforce the message.
It has been a great pleasure to welcome Celia Kirshen from St Winefride’s to the team. – Mark Thomas
