Church event enjoyed by 300 pupils

For the seventh year running the Elloe East Deanery organised an event for Year 4 children from 16 primary schools as part of its Mission work.

Each school attended for half a day and this year over 300 children thoroughly enjoyed a range of experiences.

The children explored the story of Moses through drama, music, dance and craft, gaining an understanding of God’s plan for the Hebrew people.

The activities are delivered by Spalding theatre company ACT II and freelance dance instructor and choreographer Katrina Brackenbury.

The project, organised by a small committee, is funded by the Mary Bass Charity Trustees and all the churches in the Deanery.

Clergy and other interested lay people from the parishes visit the three-day event, giving opportunities for networking and promoting various youth initiatives in the Deanery.

A Deanery spokesman said: “The children all thoroughly enjoy the activities offered.

“We believe we are giving the children an invaluable experience and hopefully laying a firm foundation stone which will encourage them to explore further the meaning of Christianity in their lives.”
