Our September 12th Service marked the start of term for many of our children and young people as they restarted schools, nurseries and colleges and universities. We had a ‘Back to School with God’ service in church and watched a video of the story of Jesus returning to his disciples as they fished after his death. His instructions to cast their nets on the other side allowed them to catch a huge haul of fish and they shared breakfast together.
Our ‘boat’ complete with fishing net was filled with colourful fish that had been decorated with designs and prayers and we were delighted to welcome baby Freya at her baptism as part of the service.
Remind us that wherever we go, you are always with us.
Strengthen students of all ages with encouragement, love and support.
Fill us all with the joy of learning so that we may be better equipped to be your servants. Amen.
