What a terrific assembly we shared with Rev. David Pierce, the Lead Minister from St. Marys in Shoebury on Thursday. He came in to discuss how some Christians celebrate Ash Wednesday. He began talking about Shrove Tuesday and why pancakes are shared. Ash Wednesday was detailed and the children were shown palm crosses and the oil and ash used in the service. David then invited some volunteers up to work out how many days there were left before Easter and explained the term ‘Lent’. We all really enjoyed singing ‘Give me oil in my lamp’ with David beautifully accompanying on his guitar. We look forward to sharing more time together.
