The Hope Journey
The congregation at Rhyddings Methodist Church trained to be part of ‘The Hope Journey’ with the aim of putting on interactive workshops at key points throughout the year and bringing the pupils into school. The first training was linked to the Nativity Story and aimed at the Year two age group. The pupils went down to Church and split into 4 smaller groups. They visited different scenes set up around the Church building. The characters from the Nativity story told their part of the story from their prospective. The children were able to ask questions and interact with the characters and then had an activity to complete and a passport to stamp. Unfortunately, as a result of the Covid Pandemic, the other trainings had to be postponed, but we are hopeful that we will be able to continue with our Hope Journey as soon as restrictions are lifted.
