Once again we were delighted to welcome students from Year 7 and 8 at Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy to lead our worship Journey to the Stable.
This is the third year that Bishop Rawstorne has written and led the three nativity scenes which they performed to Junior School children from Charnock Richard Church of England Primary School, Eccleston Primary School and St Mary’s Church of England Primary School over two days.
As the Primary Children entered church they encountered a ‘real’ donkey and learned the mythology of the cross on a donkey’s back as a link to the Christian story.
Everyone really enjoyed the morning and they took part at each stage of the journey. This was a great start to the build up to Christmas at the beginning of Advent.
