Thy Kingdom Come for children in Hanborough

, ,

CHILDREN from Hanborough Manor CE Primary School joined members of the church in Hanborough to respond to the Archbishops’ call to prayer in the week leading up to Pentecost.

School children from years three to six visited Christ Church, Long Hanborough throughout Friday 13 May, using 10 imaginative prayer stations themed ‘Thy will be done’.  Prayer stations ranged from washing hands and thinking and praying about washing the bad things away in our lives; to using mirrors to recognise how we are made in God’s image; to weaving prayers on a loom.  Several children asked if they could ‘stay all day’, and several of the children came back to a station on silent prayer because they enjoyed the ‘peace’.  The Revd David Tyler said: “We work very closely with our local church school, and were delighted that they could come and join us in our response to the Archbishops’ call.  The children really enjoyed the prayers stations and there was a lovely peaceful atmosphere throughout the day as the children joined us”. The Revd Sue Spankie said:  “We enjoyed the opportunity for the children to have significant conversations as they used the prayer stations.IMG_0697 IMG_0709 IMG_0715 IMG_0718
