Book now to attend our Open Morning on Friday 14th October
Visit to Salvation Army Citadel
The Yr 8 children visited the Salvation Army Citadel on 20th November to attend one of their Sunday meetings. This is the second chance the children get to visit to the citadel; they first visited back last summer term. The members of the corps always make us feel especially welcome.
The children are due to start working on their R.S. Common Entrance project again, which is submitted as part of their final exam. The children are exploring the Salvation Army and used their visit on Sunday to question local Salvationists on a wide range of contemporary issues ranging from human rights to the treatment of outcasts. The children wrote down the key points from their interviews and once their exams are over they will start to incorporate these answers into their projects.
The Sunday meeting was particularly relevant to the children as it was led by the corps’ youth and gave them a chance to hear young Christians professing their faith. The Toys and Tins Appeal was also launched and the children at Town Close will soon be collecting new toys and tins of food to support this appeal. We look forward to handing over all our donations before Christmas.
Our thanks go to Alison Gibson who facilitated our visit and to everyone at the citadel for helping us.
